On Monday 16th December the Green Schools Committee along with our local travel officer conducted a walkability audit of the local area. We looked at the condition of footpaths, roads, accessability for wheelchair users, the safety aspect if children choose to walk or cycle to school and we also measured the speed of traffic using a speed gun on the road outside our school.
Christmas Jumper Day for Crumlin Hospital.
Children enjoying Science Day in Coláiste Muire.
Last month in Aistear the junior and senior infants really enjoyed learning about animals and taking care of their pets. In pretend play they took on roles such as a vet, receptionist, veterinary nurse, pet owner and in some cases dogs and cats. They brought in their toy animals to school. They made kennels and crates in construction as well as animal masks. Using play doh they put bandages on dogs, made cages, dog treats and pets.
The children have just completed classes in basic computing and coding.
The children identified some of the trees, and some of the signs of Autumn in the nearby woodland area.
