The Aistear theme for April and May is’ Habitats’.During April we looked at ‘The Sea’ and ‘Polar Lands’
At the Art Table the children painted paper plate fish and they made penguins.They also made sea creatures out of playdough .
In the Home Corner they enjoyed ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ and they explored ‘Polar Regions’.
The children used the Water Table frequently this month as it became the ocean for many types of sea creatures and then The Arctic Ocean.
In Construction the children worked in their groups as a team to design and make an igloo and a snowmobile.
The children built igloos using small blocks and they played with models of polar animals in small world.
There was a huge amount of learning in this topic and the children really enjoyed both themes.
