We have been having a wonderful time in Junior Infants; it has been another busy few weeks!

Our theme in Aistear has been ‘The Bakery’. As part of this, we had lots of fun making our very own salt dough creations! We love playing in the roleplay, small world, construction and creative areas. Look at what what we have been up to!

We also went on our first trip out to Albert College park. We went on a nature trail, looking out for signs of Autumn and we also collected some autumn leaves, conkers and acorns. We looked out for where hedgehogs might be hibernating and some very observant pupils spotted a fox hiding in the bushes! We topped off our visit with some fun in the playground. It’s great to see all the friendships forming already!
