Let’s see what Junior’s got up to last week on Seesaw!

 

We revised  2D shapes

Juniors went on the hunt in their homes to find 2D shapes and recorded facts all about 2D shapes. 

They also sorted 2D shapes..Check it out… 

 

Junior Infants started learning about butterflies. We listened to the story “The Hungry Caterpillar”, recorded the food he ate and made caterpillar patterns

 

We re-visited Art for Kids Hub and learned how to draw a butterfly… These are amazing! 

 

In phonics, we learned all about the letter x. The children looked for items in their home with the letter x in them!

 

Junior Infants have been working so hard on their reading using the Oxford Owl website! Keep it up! They even uploaded book reviews this week!

They have also been practising their blending skills by spelling words! check it out!

Check back next week to see more awesome work!

Keep it up Juniors! You are amazing!!!

Here is a lovely resource that could give our parents some ideas for activities to do with their children while school is closed.

These activities are lots of fun but also provide the children with lots of learning opportunities!
