Junior Infants have been learning about 'Ag an Zú' in Gaelige this week, as such we focused on Zoo Animals during Aistear time. The children planned Aistear as a group where they decided to complete a variety of fun activities incorporating Zoo animals. Over the course of the week, each child worked together to create Lego Zoo animals, they used Magnatiles and blocks to build a zoo creating enclosures for the animals. Lastly each group used our class circus tent to create a circus themed drama, various children transformed into animals, ringmasters etc. Everyone had wonderful fun playing and using their imaginations. This week we also celebrated Paudie's birthday. He turned six in April but we enjoyed our tasty treat this week.
