Aistear is the curriculum framework for children from birth to six years in Ireland which involves learning about a particular theme through play, discovery and discussion. Ciara’s Junior Infants have just started Aistear and we love it! Our themed for January is ‘Toys’. The children have been busy making different toys using junk art and playdough. The ‘Toyshop’ role play area has been a great hit and the children are really using their imaginations to come up with different situations for the Teddy Bears picnic.
