Welcome to Lyndsey's Senior Infants
Scroll down to see what we've been up to in class.
The First Term
As it has been a big transition for the children coming back to school. We are teaching them how to be safe in school. Last week they were practising their vampire coughs and learning a song about washing your hands thoroughly.
Our Maths Songs that we learned in the first week
We are learning new counting songs Zero Zero Superhero www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RfIKqkvHTY and Herman the Worm in particular are their favourite. These are helping children revise counting forwards and backwards 1-10.
Every week the children will be revising 2 or 3 digraphs per week ( two letters that make the one sound) In the last two weeks they have revised ch, sh, th, ou, and ai. To make it more interesting the children have being learning tongue twisters that have these digraphs in them. They have had so much fun learning them. Here are examples of one or two examples.
My Many Coloured Days by Dr Seuss
I read the book 'My Many Coloured Days' by Dr Seuss. It's a lovely book that connects emotions and colours. The children spoke about how what colour they were feeling that day. Here is some of the fabulous work up on the wall.
The children are learning all about Autumn. They discussed the different coloured leaves they see. They also spoke about what 'hibernation' and 'migration' is. Here are some lovely photo's of the class gathering leaves for an art project they were doing.
