This week Junior Infants have been reading a great story called ‘Handa’s Surprise’. In the beginning of the story, Handa wanted to bring her friend Akeyo seven special fruits. In the middle of the story, something happened to her fruit, but at the end of the story, Handa got a big suprise! Can you remember what it was?
The class have been very busy weighing Handa’s fruit for her in their scales and Fruit and Vegetable Shop, seeing which fruits are heavier and which are lighter, acting out Handa’s Surprise using their masks, counting from 0-7, and helping Handa to weave new baskets to hold her fruit. In return, Handa gave the class some of her fruit to print with!
Junior Infants have also been learning about where our food comes from, and have been looking at different food from around the world, comparing their breakfasts with other children from around the world! Vinny the class teddy was so impressed with all their hard work this week that he left them a present – they got to taste some of Handa’s fruit, and decide which was their favourite fruit- mango, pineapple, mandarin or avacado!
