Aistear News, Room 12

At the hospital we took our roles of secretary, patients, nurses and doctors very seriously. Over the last two weeks, we’ve had numerous broken arms, legs, pains in tummies and even a baby girl was born! We also built the hospital and had many emergencies with patients arriving in the ambulances. Mrs. Briggs played matching games with us while Mr. Beglin & Mr. Power chatted to us about keeping healthy and eating food to keep our tummies healthy! We’ve been very busy!

A big “Thank You” to all the families who contributed to our Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal. 

We collected the grand total of 320 boxes. The boxes have now started their journey thanks to the help of the boys and girls in Room 26.

They will make their way to Eastern Europe and will make many boys and girls very happy this Christmas.

Many thanks for your support.

Aistear in Room 12

In Aistear, we’ve been working on ‘Homes’! We learned all about a house, the different rooms and the types of furniture that go into each room. We had interesting & funny chats with Mr. Beglin!  Mrs. Briggs reminded us of the The Three Little Pigs story and we pretended to be the pigs. We quickly learned how difficult it was to build a house of straw and that using blocks  is the best type of house! Mr. & Ms. Kindlon worked on our retelling and drama skills at the puppet theatre. We had super fun. With Ms. Cully, we made wolves from paper plates and used forks to make them hairy! We love Aistear!
