This month’s Aistear theme is ‘Our Bodies’. The children have been learning about healthy eating, the importance of exercise, personal hygiene and feelings.
In the Home Corner they have been in role as stylists and clients in ‘The Hairdressers’, shopkeepers and customers in the ‘Fruit and Vegetable’ Shop and parents and nurses/doctors in the ‘Baby Clinic’.
In the Construction Corner they built a town for the people who work and care for us in the local community. The also built a gym where they worked as trainers and clients.
In Small World they made bodies from Mobilo and a creche from Lego.
At the Art Table they made a giant food pyramid using pictures of food cut out from magazines, they painted people with ‘blow-paint’ hairstyles, they drew their favourite things in their ‘thinking’ pictures, they made themselves from junk art and they made frames for their baby photos.
For ‘Show and Tell’ they spoke about something they had from when they were babies and why it was special to them.
