Junior and Senior Infants enjoyed some outdoor learning this week. A dry hour allowed the class to venture to the park to carry out a leaf hunt, some bark rubbings and a hedgehog search!!! Unfortunately they had no luck with finding a hedgehog but they did manage to find sycamore oak, horse chestnut and beech leaves.
The infant classroom is a hive of activity these days. Whether it is turned into a coffee shop or a hospital you can be sure the children are playing and learning and having lots of fun. The infant children are now following the new Early Childhood Curriculum Framework named ‘Aistear’. ‘Aistear’ is a guide in planning learning experiences for both teachers and parents. Through a few basic principles and themes the proagramme aims to develop a child’s learning through play. The programme is its early days of implementation but Miss. O’ Sullivan and the Junior Infants and Senior Infants are looking forward to lots of ‘Aistear’ fun ahead.
As a result of the fundraiser, children throughout the whole school are becoming competent in the use of technology and enjoying using the ipads to learn. Infants are using them for literacy and numeracy activities while senior pupils are using them to edit their writing, to broaden their geographical knowledge and to research an array of topics.
