January in Mia’s Junior Infants

We have had so much fun since we came back from  our Winter Break! Our Aistear theme this month is The Arctic ,we love putting on our coats and hats and pretending to be scientists doing Arctic research!! In maths we  are learning about weight, we used balance
scales to see which items were heavier or lighter. We are also learning about the weather so we put a rain gauge outside to measure how much rain will fall in January . We read the story ‘Owl Babies’ and made some lovely art pieces inspired by it, and this week we are making umbrella art!! We also got some new books for the library and we love reading them!! And finally our Hyacinth bloomed; we prepared it before Christmas;  we predicted it would take 30 days but it took 45! It smells beautiful in the classroom! Now we are waiting to see how long our mini daffodils will take to bloom. What’s your prediction, ours is 70 days.
