Ms. Cowley’s Junior Infants have thrust themselves into the medical world through the medium of play this week as they continue on their journey through the different topics in Aistear.

Throughout the week, the tables will be taking part in the various play stations, which include role-play, construction, small world, sand play, art and play dough. All the children have already been extending their vocabulary, learning so many new words such as x-ray, thermometer, stethoscope, injection, to name but a few!

The boys and girls in room 1 have never failed to show anything but the highest level of enthusiasm as they learn through play, developing their oral language in such a wonderfully creative and highly imaginative manner.

Miss Polly Had A Dolly

Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick.
So she called for the doctor to come quick, quick, quick.
The doctor came with his bag and his hat
And he knocked on the door with a rat-a-tat-tat.
He looked at the dolly and he shook his head
And he said “Miss Polly, put her straight to bed!”
He wrote on a paper for some pills, pills, pills
“I’ll be back in the morning with my bill, bill, bill.”

She went to bed, 

And she slept all night, 

And she woke up in the morning, 

Feeling quite alright!
