Room 1: Houses and Homes and Science Week

23rd Nov 2023

Here in junior and senior infants, we have been learning all about houses and homes through Aistear play. We enjoyed building houses at our construction area, sorted furniture into different rooms at our tuff tray, played furniture bingo, made our very own creations at our junk art area and even bought and sold houses at our very own 'Estate Agents'. We read the story 'The Three Little Pigs' and then created our own houses of straw, sticks and bricks. We read the story 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs' and were divided on whether we think the wolf really just had a bad cold and sneezed the houses down by accident! 

We also had lots of fun during Science week making rainbows using Skittles and warm water, making raisins dance in fizzy water and exploring what happens when we add a gummy bear to water and leave it overnight. 

We have had great fun and had lots of playful learning opportunities with Ms. O'Connor who has been with us for the past three weeks.
