Our theme this week in Aistear is houses and homes. As part of this, we looked at the homes of the three little pigs and decided to make straw, stick and brick houses from shoe boxes, toilet rolls, paper etc. Here are a few pics :)
In October our two Aistear themes have been the construction site and the fire station. Here are a few pics :)

We have been learning all about The Bakery in Aistear. We all had a chance to put our chef's hat on and mix ingredients in our role play area and sell cakes to customers. We also made Gingerbread Men at our creative station and even made cupcakes! We had lots of fun making them but even more fun eating them!
