The Infant Classroom

Welcome to the infant room. Here Mrs Dignam teaches junior and senior infants. We choose a theme on a fortnightly basis and plan our learning around it. Our learning is largely hands on and play based. We apply the early childhood curriculum framework of Aistear in the classroom. Aistear introduces structured play to meet the curriculum objectives. 

Imaginative play is at the heart of the Aistear time where children, teachers and Special Needs Assistants interact together to create an environment such as a post office, Santa’s workshop or a space ship. In addition the children participate in a variety of structured play in the form of games with rules, small world, creative and construction. Our Aistear theme is integrated throughout the day to enhance the children’s language development.
