Senior Infants 2019/2020
Structured Play for September
Our themes were 'home' and 'Autumn' and were carried through in our free play station of 'Home' and our fine motor station where the children developed their cutting and pasting skills cutting out pictures of houses and sticking them together. In playdough they were encouraged to create things they might eat at home! For Art we created lots of Autumn themed Art such as Autumn leaf rubbings and Autumn leaves falling from trees - for this we explored textures created by using cotton buds in paint.
Happy Halloween from Senior Infants!
During December we've been busy with the theme of the Post Office especially the North Pole Post Office. We have written and posted our letters to Santa. Weighed and stamped parcels and filled out forms. In the playdough station we made Christmas decorations and other delights. In the small world area we helped Santa's elves clear a path through the snow (rice and cotton wool maze) with his snowploughs. We have also had a special addition to our classroom who we helped name - we all wrote our name choice on the whiteboard and in the morning our elf had chosen the name from our selection - Billy Beans the Elf! He enjoys keeping an eye on us all and getting up to some mischief too!
