February News from Junior and Senior Infants

We learned all about Spring this month, participated in Operation Transformation 10@10, celebrated Valentines day and marked Pancake Tuesday, the last day of the month by having a pancake party. We had a really great time!

We learned all about............ Spring!

This month, we learned all about the Signs of Spring in geography and we learned about the life cycle of the frog in science. We read the big book of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' as part of our English and we sequenced the different parts of the story in history. Our Aistear was based all around the topic of Spring and we completed many different Spring time play activities.

Physical play - play dough station

Creative play - Spring flowers and rainbows

Language play - Spring bingo


Socio - dramatic play - The Garden Centre

Maths - We learned all about Time

In our maths this month, we were learning all about the seasons and days of the week. We talked about daily routines and sequenced daily routines in groups.

Gaeilge - Éadaí

We learned the Irish for various clothes, as well as some songs and poems in Irish. We made our own clothes line and played various games and activities based on 'Éadaí'.

English - The Very Hungry Caterpillar

As part of our English this month, we focused on the big book of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We sequenced the story, explored our favourite parts and created a character profile of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Science - The Life Cycle of a frog

In groups, we sequenced pictures to tell the story of The Life Cycle of a Frog.


In religion, we learned about the signs of Spring and thanked God for all of the signs of Spring and new life at Spring time.
