We had a nice short week this week and after all the hard work since Christmas we took it nice and easy and had some fun!
This was lovely to see... one of the children assembled this cool big jigsaw and all the other children just gathered around to look and discuss and all of a sudden they just started to sing the alphabet completely impromptu! These children are starting to teach themselves. I don't think they need me anymore!
Whenever possible we try to get outdoors for some fresh air, exercise and adventures. We cannot wait for the brighter, warmer days to arrive!
Over the past month the children have received Magic of Music lessons given from the wonderful Rachel. She is fantastic with them and the lessons are super active but also include lovely musical theory taught in a fun way... each year they continue to develop their musical understanding further.
That's it for this week, short and sweet... have a great break!
We had such a busy week this week I hope I can fit it all not one blog! I hope you liked your mid week Valentines treat we recorded for you, the children were very excited to be able to do something special for you. This week we finished up our Transport theme, it was a great success. I hope you liked their 'Little Book of Transport' they brought home today. I have lots of photos and videos this week so I'll just get posting... hope you enjoy them all!
All things Transport
The focus was on reviewing our work in Aistear this week. The children are trying their best to use full structured sentences to communicate and question each other independently.
Never underestimate the value of a cardboard box.
Cardboard boxes were a massive hit this week, this one particulary! It gave them hours of endless fun.

The Waiting Game
Waiting patiently for teacher... an opportunity to catch up on some topical reading.
Learning about natural and man made materials.

Taking a break
The children are really utilising the topical book selection and studying them to enhance their own planning and learning. It's great to see them enjoying their DEAR time so much. Such valuable time spent.
