Junior Infants Room 2: C-C-Community!

Over the last month, Room 2 have been learning all about the community – the people and place where they live. They talked about all the different people who help them in their school community and their local community, including secretaries, garbage collectors, teachers, nurses, mechanics, vets, police men and women, and shop keepers. They also had a visit from two firefighters, who taught them all about fire safety and even let them try on their firefighting gear! They loved playing in the Doctor’s surgery, using all of their special medical instruments and words, and sang and acted out lots of related rhymes including Miss Polly and Doctor Foster. They did a fantastic job of acting out and ordering their new story We’re Going on a Bear Hunt as well. Room 2 have also been learning all about their bodies- how to make them grow strong, keep them safe, and how to draw them by using different lines and shapes! They made wonderful x-ray prints of their arms and hands in Art, and really enjoyed tracing around eachothers bodies in PE, and comparing their heights in Maths by making a height chart- have a look at them at work (and play!) here. Well done Room 2, you are Super Stars :)
