January in Senior Infants

Happy New Year to you all. Welcome back after the Winter Holiday. This term our focus in literacy is ‘narrative’. we have started our learning by listening to the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We have  retold the story through drama in the role play area and through the use of story props. We have thought about the characters in the story and made a collection of words to describe the Big Bad Wolf and Little Red Riding Hood. We used these words to help us write ‘WANTED’ posters to see if we could find the Big Bad Wolf. We have sequenced the story through pictures and words and learned to sing a rap to tell the story. Through Aistear we have been building Granny’s cottage, drawing/painting pictures of the characters in the story and much , much more. please ask your child about this. On Friday we are going to have a go at writing our own versions of the story.
