The children in Junior Infants have really been enjoying their Aistear playtime every Wednesday and Thursday! Aistear is curriculum framework for early childhood which provides enjoyable and challenging learning experiences to help the children develop as competent and confident learners.
Our current Aistear theme is The Post Office, and the children have been having a great time learning about how letters and parcels are posted, sorted and delivered all around the world! We began learning all about the postal system when we received some Christmas decorations from schools in Germany and Spain, who we had contacted through an e-twinning project. The children loved looking at the different stamps and packages, and so we made our very own class Post Office! Over the past two weeks, the class have been enjoying writing postcards, invitations, cards and and letters, filling out application forms for TV licences and passports, packaging and labeling their own parcels, and role playing in the Post Office. They have also been working hard at sorting letters and parcels, making deliveries around the class, and even making their own model post offices from Lego!
Over the past couple of weeks 6th class have been learning about the Global Goals.
The Global Goals have been drawn up to focus on three main areas they are to:
- End extreme poverty
- Fix climate change
- Fight inequality and injustice
The Global Goals are set every fifteen years, in an attempt to make the world a better place for everyone everywhere.
Each child in our class had to make a poster representing one of the goals.
These posters were made for our presentation of the global goals.
Then Calum wrote a song to sing with the class in our presentation.
We have now made a music video and are planning to send the song into the global goals.
We hope they like it.
