Aistear Areas in Junior Infants

‘Maria Montessori says that “play is the work of the child”. Play is essential to a child’s development be it socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. With this in mind, the boys and girls in Junior Infants in Gort national school partake in Aistear every morning. For the month of September and October the theme is The Home Corner. The class in their groups rotate and play in various areas during the week. The five areas include construction, play-doh, role play area, sand area and art/cutting area. The children in Ms. Mitchell’s class are having great fun in their Aistear Areas!’
