Teaching Practice Student

Dear parents/ guardians,

For the next four weeks, Niamh, a student in St. Patrick’s Teaching College will be completing her Teaching Practice with the class. She’ll be following the Junior Infant curriculum under my supervision. As a final year student, Niamh has already had prior teaching experience. Niamh is really looking forward to working with the children for the next few weeks. Any thoughts or comments, as always please feel free to contact me on belmayneetjulie@gmail.com.

Kind regards,

Aistear: The Restaurant
In the role-play area the children were customers, waiters, waitresses, chefs and baristas.
For play-dough the boys and girls each made a meal.
At the construction table the children built restaurants and coffee shops using Lego. They built tables, chairs, counters, kitchens and some even built a delivery car for people ordering takeaway :-)
The kids did some pop-art aswell using oil pastels.

Friendship Week:
We made friendship bracelets with Shane's 3rd Class. Each of our class buddied up with a 3rd Class child.
Friendship groups with children from different classes. The 6th Class children led the groups which lasted for about 20 minutes every day the week before midterm. 

Aistear: The Clothes Shop

We made a sun from clay, and painted it when it dried
