January in Junior Infants!

By 31st January 2024Junior Infants, News

January has been a very busy and very fun month for Junior Infants!

Check out some of the things we have been up to:

In January we started Hurling with Coach Jenny. We have loved building these new skills and we might even have some future Dublin players on our hands!

In January our theme for our Aistear was the supermarket and food! We had a lot of fun playing in the role play area and also used it to inspire our writing we have practiced writing shopping lists and here we are writing labels for the food in the supermarket. Check out our amazing phonics work.


We also experienced healthy week this month and we had a lot of fun trying fruits in class and thinking of words to describe them like squishy, slimy, chewy and delicious! We ate pineapple, mango, melon, kiwi, oranges, apples, bananas, grapes, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.


In January we also started a new creative area in Aistear – Junk Art! We have loved used recyclable materials to make our wonderful creations.

This month we also welcomed our first two Mystery Readers! We have absolutely loved the excitement of finding out who will visit to read us a story and we look forward to lots more mystery readers.

What a great month we have had! 🙂
