APRIL 2021

This month our Aistear theme was the Emergency services. Our role play focused on the fire station.

The children made and answered 999 calls. They were in role as firefighters putting out fires and rescuing animals!

One of our stations was Water play. We used shaving foam to represent the fires and the children squirted water at them to put them out.

This was lots of fun and perfect for developing fine motor skills ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

At our art stations we made fire engines, fireman hats and other emergency vehicles.

We used Lego and Magsnaps to build fire stations.

Birthday Roll Call๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽˆ

Science week 2020

This week we did an experiment to show the importance of washing our hands ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

We used a bowl of water, pepper to represent germs and handsoap.

We added the pepper to the water and dipped in our finger which resulted in the pepper -(germs) sticking to our finger.

We repeated this process after dipping our finger in the handsoap. When we touched the pepper (germs) they immediately dispersed away from the soap and our finger came out clean this time.

The children thought this was magic but after dome discussion they realised its actually science!

Why not try this at home โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
