Today, junior infants in room 5 were visited by Katie from the Road Safety Authority (RSA). Katie talked to us about being safe when walking near the road, when driving in the car, and when cycling our bikes. She was also very kind to give each of us a high vis vest which we can wear when we are out and about with our family and friends. Thanks so much for visiting us, Katie! For more pictures, click...
The children in room 5 have been exploring the theme of people in our community. One of the primary focuses of this theme has been an exploration around the doctor’s surgery through oral language discussion, nursery themes, fine motor activities, reading, phonological awareness activities, drama and role play. The children have had great fun singing and changing the words of the rhyme ‘Miss Polly had a Dolly Who was Sick, Sick, Sick,’ acting out this rhyme for the class and in the role play corner during playtime. Our favourite activity has been using playdough to make various objects found in a doctor’s office. Keep posted to see how we continue to explore this theme over the coming month!
