The children in Room 5 have been working with Bee Bot floor robots as part of their STEM block. They have learned how to give their robot instructions to follow a maze, explore a village, play snakes and ladders, move from shape to shape and even to to dance!!
Room 4 had a busy Monday this week. They went to the Post Office to post Santa letters , they visited the crib display and they also met a very important man…Santa
Room 4 are doing The Post Office/ Santa’s Workshop as their Aistear theme. They are wrapping presents, writing letters and cards, sending packages, making gingerbread houses, using playdough to create Christmas decorations and are having lots of fun!
The aistear hospital theme has come to an end in Room 1. Over the past few weeks the “ surgeons” have operated on patients, applied bandages to very sick Children, paid their Doctor’s bill at the receptionist’s desk, created Doctor’s bags at the art and craft station, investigated initial sounds of hospital words such as stethoscope, thermometer etc, used play doh to give patients chicken pox and plasters, played bingo.
The children also investigated the properties of regular 2-D shapes such as circles, squares, triangles. They used number rods to Mae circles and lollipop sticks to construct as many squares and triangles as possible.
