We were very lucky to have a visit from an aer hostess yesterday in class. We learnt lots of interesting facts about flying and life at Dublin airport. We really liked Colette's uniform. We now know aer lingus buys their planes from France. Thank you Colette for giving up your time to come talk to us.
This month we have been learning about clothes in Aistear. We have had lots of fun learning about the different parts of a shoe, looking at clothes we wear in each season, washing and drawing clothes. We had a dress up shop in class which we really enjoyed.
We have had so much fun dancing with Rosita for an hour each week since we came back from our Christmas holidays! We have learned to line dance and also how to JIVE! Take a look at our pictures ...
This month our Áistear activities are revolving around the theme of weather and water. We started by reading Tom Crean's Rabbit. This book focuses on a sailors adventure to discover Antarctica and a pet rabbit which kept him company.
Role Play: in the role play area we are pretending to be on a voyage and re-enacting the story above. We are having to use vocabulary we learned through reading the story such as captain, voyage, galley and cabin. We took in our toy rabbits from home to help us. We also got a new play kitchen which is a great addition for the ships galley.
Literacy: Last week at this station we are exploring the story of Tom Crean's Rabbit in more detail. We discussed the chronology of the story, our favourite parts of the book and we recorded these pictorally. Th

We kept a "good secret" this week in class! We wrote a Christmas card to our parents and went to the Post Office to post them as a surprise for all the Mammy's and Daddy's!! It was so much fun getting to walk down to the Post Office. We have been learning all about how An Post work this week in class so it was exciting to go visit where the post man works. We had to put a stamp on our card to make sure it reached our homes. Take a look at our picture below..
Thanks to Muldoon's for facilitating us on Pension Day!! :)
Thank you to all who sent in items to add to our Sign of Winter table!
