Our Aistear theme this month is the building and construction site! The children have been playing in role as builders, architects, designers and clients as they plan and construct their very own houses, towers and buildings. Have a look for yourself and ask your child about what is happening in each of the photos. Ask questions like "I wonder how they built that?" or "What is the child making in this picture?". Your child can fill you in on all of the news from the building site!
We have been learning about diggers, cranes, bulldozers and cement mixers and how they help with the materials needed for construction. The children have also been investigating and constructing with recycled materials at the Junk Art station. There have been lots of great Lego towers and bridges built in Junior Infants.... Although some of them have also come tumbling down! All of these experiences are part of investigating, testing, trial and error as a successful builder :)
Hi my name is Ellen and welcome to the Junior Green blog. See what we get up to in our first year of school!
