We had Grandparents Day in Term 1 and it was a fantastic morning! The boys and girls got to show their grandparents/parents their classroom, their work and we even sang and danced for them which they enjoyed! A big thank you to all the lovely Grannies, Grandads, Mums and Dads that came to JCK for a visit! You really made the children’s day!

The Brothers Quibble

Posted by Miss Keniry | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 28, 2015

JCK really enjoyed listening to the story ‘The Brothers Quibble’ about a boy, Spalding, who becomes very naughty when his new baby brother Bunny arrives home from hospital. But in the end,  Spalding learns that he enjoys having his little brother around and that Bunny isn’t so bad after all! In the story, Spalding wears a crown as he thinks he is the ruler of his house (before Bunny comes along, of course!!) So we made our own crowns today in class but I hope no body in JCK will be as naughty as Spalding was!!! IMG_2679

This week in Maths, JCK are learning all about patterns! They had some time today to explore patterns with lots of materials – counters, cubes, peg boards etc. They made some great patterns and really enjoyed seeing what patterns their friends had made!!

March 17th is one of Miss K’s favourite days as its the day when she can celebrate her great country, Ireland!! For St. Patricks day, the Preps took part in ‘Green Day’. They all wore green and enjoyed lots of activities about Ireland! They learned how to Irish dance, they decorated a shamrock, they made an Irish flag and they decorated a rainbow with a pot of gold! To finish the day, all the preps went outside and played lots of fun games, including ‘Steal the gold’ where they stole ‘gold’from the leprechauns pot! Overall, it was a fantastic day, enjoyed by both teachers and students!!

La fheile Padraig gach duine! (Happy Saint Patrick’s day everyone!)

Just Right Reading!

This week, the children in JCK started using their Just Right Reading boxes for the first time! It was very exciting!! Each child has their own box with books that are Just Right’ for them to practise their reading!! The children were excellent at remembering how we use our boxes – we sit by ourselves and we read our books quietly to ourselves. The children in JCK are going to be fantastic readers!

The ‘Read All About It’ books proved the most popular with the children. These are personal books with pictures and sentences about each child’s prep year. They LOVED seeing pictures of themselves in a book!! They’re famous!!

All the preps at BSPS enjoyed a teddy bear picnic to mark the end of our first two weeks of school! Before the picnic, we met each others teddies and then we made some food for the picnic. The children made fairy bread and decorated their own teddy biscuit with icing! Yum! When the food was made, we put on our teddy ears and we all went outside for our teddy bear picnic! Everyone had a great time and the Shepp news even came to see our teddies!!

We are very lucky in JCK to have such friendly, helpful and caring buddies this year! Our buddies are from Grade 6 SMM. We meet our buddies once a week for some activities – colouring, reading, writing, playing games. The preps really love spending time with their buddies! Here are some pictures of us and our buddies!

JCK have really been enjoying Investigations time in our classroom! It is a fantastic way to learn! During Investigations, the children can work and play in a variety of areas including the Home Corner, Writing Area, Collage Area and Library corner. They can also work and play with lego, blocks, farm sets, puppets, kinetic sand etc. Here are some of the children enjoying investigations! And doing some great learning while they do it!!

Last week, JCK learned how to cross the road safely! Chris is our crossing lady and she reminded us of lots of important things we have to do when we are crossing the road:

We wait to hear TWO whistles and then we WALK CAREFULLY across the road to the other side. We keep listening and looking and thinking while we walk across.

Thanks Chris for helping us to keep safe when we are crossing the road!

Miss K 🙂
