The children explored the theme of 'Spring' through the following stations:
Arts & Crafts: The children learnt some basic facts about the rabbit and then made their own rabbits using socks and rice (see photographs) Active Station: The children discussed how we celebrate 'Easter' and then completed a yoga lesson based on 'Peter Cottontail'. Playdough Station: The children read the story 'Little Red Hen', discussed the stages involved in the process of making bread and then used their 'Little Red Hen' playdough mats. Literacy Station: The children read and discussed the story 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit' and then wrote a diary entry for Peter. Planting Station: The children discussed spring flowers and had the chance to plant their own bulbs in little pots. Small World: Using our farm and animal playsets, the children discussed the work of a farmer and also focused on the baby animals born on the farm each spring. Here we share some photographs of our 'Aistear' sessions.
