This year we have looked at lots of different themes in Aistear, we have had a great time learning about these topics through play and we hope you enjoy looking at all the fun we've had so far this year!
Here we are learning about Space and the planets. We built rockets, made clay aliens, used our puppets to play together and even made our own super cool aliens from outer space!
We all loved making our shop and playing in our supermarket, we used the till, the phone, the baskets and of course lots of food! We had great fun being the shopkeeper and the customer, making shopping lists, giving change and we even built our own superstore out of bricks!
Next we set up a restaurant, we served up the best food to our customers, took orders, cooked the meals and made our own model restaurants from Lego!
The Post Office
Around Christmastime we had a Post Office in our room. In the Post Office we had a postman who delivered letters, a postcard making station and even a wrapping station to wrap all the presents being sent off for Christmas! We loved writing letters, addressing our envelopes and sending our letters off with our friendly postman, it was so much fun!
The Weather Station
The weather station was full of excitement as we had reporters live on the scene of storms and researchers working hard to have the weather report ready to air on RTE News. We used maps and a full TV crew to make sure everything was covered! We made model weather stations with out Lego too!
The Clothes Shop
The clothes shop was a busy one as we had so many customers wanting to try on all of our styles, we ended up needing security to keep things under control during the busy times! We also made clothes and made signs for the shop letting all our customers know when we were open and what was and wasn't allowed in our shop.
