Our Role Play area will be The Vets, children are invited to bring in their own teddies if they wish to use them in the Role Play area!
Our Aistear Topic for January is The Clothes Shop. Please discuss this topic with your child, in any language you like!
We have been building shops and shelves, We have been writing stories about our trip to the clothes shop, we have been acting as customers, shop assisstants and cashiers. We are looking forward to the next few weeks in the Clothes shop!
Watch this space for some photographs of our adventures and hard work!
We have had lots of fun in the Cafe during Aistear.
We were customers, waiters and waitresses and chefs, we made orders and we made complaints. We had clumsy waiters and chefs who burnt our food!
In Free Writing we created menus and picked our favourite foods.
The small world Cafe varied from a human cafe to animals and cars aswell!
We built cafes and furniture and giants cakes in construction too!
Our Aistear topic for November is The Cafe.
You have been asked to discuss the Cafe at home, in any language, talk about the people who work there, the items there e.g. furniture, the food they might order.
We will be taking part in Role Play; as waiters, waitresses, the chef, the customer and all in between! We will be constructing cafes, chossing topping for pizzas at our creative station and writing menus!
Watch this space for our progress!
We have been learning about the Opticians.
We made our own glasses and we are using them in Role play. We have been making appointments, doing eye tests and choosing the frames for our glasses!
Our pets and dolls have been having their eyes tested too!
We have really enjoyed pretending to be teachers, parents, Ann, Cróna and Helena. We are improving our writing and imaginative play. We can't wait to see what Aistear topic next month brings!
Our Aistear Theme for September is School.
We have been designing and building schools and playgrounds in Construction.
We have been making schools and play grounds in our Creative station.
Free Writing has been about school, tricky words and letter formation.
Small world has been a small school.
In Role Play we have been taking turns to be Ann, Cróna, Helena, teachers, students and parents. Lessons have been taught, awards given out at assembly and lots of fun had!
We would encourage you to keep speaking to your children about school; the subjects, the people who work here, the classroom routines!
