Junior Infants have been very busy for the last few weeks learning and playing about all things Autumn. This was our theme for Aistear (our structured play sessions).
Some of the stations we played at included:
Role Play: Children formed a 'Tidy Towns Committee' to keep our locality clean in Autumn. All the foliage created quite a mess but our committee members worked together with rakes, litter pickers, gloves and brushes to tidy up!
Art: We made and coloured autumn pictures using crayons, leaves, matchsticks, paper, glue and scissors. We were spotting differences between seasonal pictures, making hedgehogs, leaf prints and more.
Playdough: We used autumn themed playdough mats to help us make some playdough creations including acorns, hedgehogs,
Construction: We made farm sheds for the animals who come indoors to keep warm late in Autumn time.
Sand table: we were finding and sorting conkers, acorn and beech nuts in the sand.
