All the children in Junior 3 were delighted to welcome our new school bus. We cheered when it arrived at school and got our photographs taken. We are really looking forward to going on lots of exciting school trips on our beautiful new blue bus.
All the children in Junior 3 loved learning about "The Hairdressers". We set up our own hairdressing salon in our classroom and loved styling each others hair with bows, fancy clips and rollers! We made lovely paint comb prints and wool hairstyles in Art and we really enjoyed making brush and comb patterns in our sand tray. We even visited a real hairdressers in Cootehill where we washed a dolls hair and styled it with plaits. We loved learning about The Hairdressers!
In November, Junior 3 learned all about The Restaurant and Food! We loved listening to two sensory stories, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Gingerbread Man. We made Mosaic Gingerbread Men in Art Class and we baked delicious Gingerbread Men in Cookery class too. We washed dishes during sensory play and made pizzas and ice cream cones in Art Class. We played in our kitchen and even dressed up as cooks! We really enjoyed a trip to a restaurant for our lunch. We had a great time learning all about The Restaurant and Food!
Junior 3 have been busy learning about Halloween. We read the story "Room on the Broom" and enjoyed learning our "Haunted House" song. We enjoyed dressing up as witches and ghosts. We had a messy time emptying pumpkins and our teacher helped us to carve them.
