November in Senior Infants

Our theme for November was ‘homes and locality’.  The children learned all about the different types of homes they live in and also about all the services and amenities in our local area.  During Aistear they had great fun running a busy restaurant and took on the roles of chefs, waiters, waitresses and customers.  At the writing table they designed their own menus with their favourite foods for the restaurant.  They created some lovely prints using paint and various food and used chalk to complete colourful fruit bowls.  They built lovely homes and buildings in our small world area.  They designed and created their dream homes complete with swimming pools, playgrounds and even fun fairs and water parks!  We read the story of the ‘Three Little Pigs’ and at our investigating table they experimented with rocks, bricks, straw, sticks etc to build a strong house and tested it with a fan to see if the big bad wolf could blow it over! At the play dough table the children created their favourite meals.

Newsletter 28th November

28th November 2018.

Dear Parent(s),
We have a case of Slapped Cheek Syndrome and Hand Foot and Mouth disease in the Junior Infant classes. If you suspect that your child may have either of these or any other infectious condition it is vital that you inform us as soon as possible and that you keep them at home until they have recovered
We all have a responsibility to minimise the spread of such illnesses and also to protect the many members of our school community who may be higher risk than others.
We thank you for your vigilance and co-operation in this matter.

Yours sincerely,
Ann Ryan,
Please see attached sheet for information on Slapped Cheek
