All about April!

The infants have been exploring the Aistear theme of ‘Building’ – very appropriate given all the activity happening outside their classroom! They have four stations and move to a different one each day.

Here our little builders on the building site in our ‘Construction Area’.

This is the ‘Creative Area’ where our little architects are designing their dream homes and making models.
