Senior Infants had a lot of fun in October learning all about Animals!
In Aistear, our role play area was the vets clinic, we had lots of fun performing check ups, checking temperatures, administering injections, performing X-rays and checking heart rates. We practiced our writing skills by booking appointments and filling in forms about our patients.
We had lots of fun in our under water scene in our tray too! We learned the names of some sea animals and played amazing imagination games!
In construction we built amazing homes for animals!
In English we read lots of books about Animals. We focused on Dear Zoo. We sequenced the story, wrote letters to the zoo and painted the animals from the story.
In Maths we were working hard on the idea of two parts making a whole! We practiced adding to parts to make a whole and we used our animal friends to help us.
We had a great month learning about animals and incorporating it into as many subjects as we could!
