Aistear in Infants
Aistear meaning “Journey” in Gaeilge, is a framework for developing literacy and numeracy through play. The Aistear approach provides a rich informal learning experience, whereby the children are invited to participate in a range of activities scheduled around a variety of differant themes e.g. House and Home, Town and City, Autumn, Winter, Summer etc. Each play station provides a discrete learning opportunity whereby the children will experience curriculum integration in an active learning environment. By framing the classroom in such a manner, the children are presented with the opportunity to engage in and experience different types of high quality play.
Aistear has now started in Junior and Senior Infants.
