Aistear Fun in Term One
Aistear is our favourite time of the day in Ms. Griffin's class. We have had great fun during aistear this term playing in the home/kitchen, the hibernation station, the Halloween house, the vet's surgery and the post office. We always enjoy the aistear art station and have made things like 2-D shape homes, junk art homes for animals, x-rays, model mouths, life size people who help, stamps and Christmas cards. We have also had great fun with playdough, small world toys, sand, jaggo blocks, lego and stickle bricks. We can't wait to have more aistear fun next term.
A Fortnight of comparisons
In November we spent lots of time comparing items. We compared items that were long and short, wide and narrow, smooth and rough and heavy and light. Take a look at some of our heavy and light comparisons below.
A Jolly good start
November has gotten off to a very exciting start as our class have started the Jolly Phonics programme which will help us learn to read and write. Phase one of the Jolly Phonics programme starts with the letter S and we have had great fun learning the song and the accompanying action. Take a look at our sound board below:
Halloween Songs and Celebrations
Flutter Flutter Little Bat is one of our favourite rhymes so far this year. We loved performing it with our little bat friends.

You can also see photos from our Halloween party below where we watched a Halloween movie and had some treats.
