Learning Through Play

Some of the children from 1st Class recently went down to visit our new Aistear Playroom to investigate all the different toys and activities.  From running a busy café, building a city, running an international jewellery and hat business, visiting the supermarket and welcoming guests to their house, they all exercised their imaginations and had a lot of fun at the same time!

Junkyard Robots

Last month Mr Smyth’s Class learned about Recycling. This month in Art we are doing construction and have created very cool Junkyard Robots from recyclable materials we found around our homes. Thanks to all the mums and dads who helped the children collect materials. Anything we didn’t use went into our classroom’s recycle bins for plastic, paper and cardboard.

Check out our futuristic Robot Creatures below:
