J is for Jelly
We have been learning lots of letters and sounds in Junior Infants. One of our favourite things about learning a new letter is getting to taste the sound. In April, we learned the letter j and made some jelly to enjoy.
When we learned the letter l, we decided to make some lovely lemonade. Teacher cut up lots of lemons and all the children helped to juice them with our ‘lemon drill’. Then we added lots of sugar and hot water. It wasn’t easy waiting for the lemonade to cool as we were so excited to try our delicious lemonade, but it was worth the wait!
Junior Infants read the stories ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and ‘Growing Beans’. We decided to try and grow a beanstalk of our own in school. We all filled our cups with soil and made a little hole to plant our seed in. We then tucked our seeds down into the soil, watered them and found them a sunny place to live. Let’s all keep our green fingers crossed that they start to grow soon!
The Food Dudes have been visiting us in the Junior School. The children have been trying lots of delicious fruit and vegetables. They have been enjoying sugar snap peas, peppers, cucumbers, carrots, apples, grapes, oranges and bananas. Here are a few photos of our little monkeys enjoying some bananas in the sunshine.
