Aistear – October 2018

Space Travel
For the month of October the children were learning all about Space. We set up a role play area for the control station and astronauts. We also set up a junk art station and playdough area for the children to experiment and make space related items.

September 2018 in the Junior Room

The Junior Room welcomed Jaydon into Junior Infants and said farewell to Patrick, Shanzay and Hania as they went upstairs in 3rd class.

The boys and girls set up The Créche for Aistear. They enjoyed working at the reception desk, taking messages, answering the phone and making signs. They also enjoyed changing nappies, redressing the dolls and making food for lunch and dinner.

Ms. Hobson brought in old shark teeth for us to look at. They were old but still very sharp.

The children loved all the art work they did, based on the theme “Myself”.

Lego Robotics

The children in 1st/2nd/3rd class really enjoyed working with the Lego WeDo 2.0 kits.

The kits were on loan from Sligo Education Centre.

The children used the Lego WeDo kits to build and programme a robot called Milo. They used an app on the ipads to programme Milo to move.  They had great fun.


Happy Halloween!

Initial Art

The children used little pieces of paper to fill in the initial letter of their name. There were a lot of sticky fingers!
