In the month of April, we worked on the Aistear theme "People Who Help Us." At the Cut & Paste station, we read "scenario" cards and chose the best person to help with the matter. We learned a poem called "Firefighter" and at the Art station, we created a fire scene attended by a firefighter. Also, at the Art station, we drew a picture of the occupation we would like to have when we are older. It seems like we will be very helpful adults working as vets, teachers, chefs, guards and working in many other important roles. We played matching games and completed worksheets to consolidate our learning. At the Playdough station, we read instructions to create certain pieces of equipment, specific resources and vehicles needed by various workers.
Throughout our last term, we did lots of nice activities as Ms. Gaire wanted to reward us for being kind to each other and working very well. We paid visits to the school garden, we had extra play time in our classroom, had fun yoga sessions, played in the school playground and had a visit from the Ice-Cream Van. We really enjoyed the fun activities together.
