Senior Infants have had a fun and busy October. Our theme for this month was ‘Houses and Homes’ and we learned lots about the different types of homes, the materials used to build them, the rooms in the home and different kinds of families.
We embraced the seasonal changes that are happening around us and we learned lots about autumn. On National Tree day we went on a walk to Finsbury Park to look out for signs of autumn and to collect some leaves and identify the different trees that grow there.
We also celebrated World Mental Health Day with a whole week of nice activities. We did some yoga, lots of mindfulness activities and we had a picnic outside in the outdoor classroom.
Our Aistear this month was based around our theme. The children enjoyed buying and selling homes in the Estate Agent role-play area. The houses for sale become quite spooky, towards the end of our last week!
We used Lego as our construction material and built lots of different kinds of homes.
We made bedrooms and homes using junk art.
We drew our families and made lollipop stick homes at our art station. We also made pumpkins!
Small world was a big hit this month. The children loved playing with the doll’s houses and setting up the furniture in the different rooms.
