Aistear/Learning Through Play

Ms O' Sullivan's Junior Infant Class are taking part in the Aistear/ Learning Through Play programme

since October 2012. They have been engaging in a wide selection of play themes that have delivered 

curriculum content in a fun and child-centred way. They have been joined by a group of their own parents

who help out during Aistear playtime. This ensures high quality of learning through play as it allows for a

higher level of adult/child interaction than would  normally be possible. Here is a selection of photographs

from their Aistear playtime.
