In our classroom we do most of our learning through the medium of play and play based activities. In the morning we have teacher designed table top activities to help with our numeracy and literacy skills. During the day we implement the hour of play as recommeded by the Aistear (early childhood framework) curriculum. Play is our work and is very important in helping us become confident and competent learners. This month our themes are Myself and Colour and our play areas are based around these. Here are some pictures of us exploring our new play areas.
