Aistear - Halloween and The Costume Shop
This week fir Aistear we did the costume shop. We too turns working as shop assistants, managers, staff on the till and customers. We were excellent at using questioning vocabulary during drama, to ask for different sizes and enquire about ordering costumes for certain ages and interests. We were modeling Halloween shapes and following instructions with playdough and for messy play we made potions with lots of water and glitter and used our imaginations to decide what our potions would do! We also built haunted house, witches brooms, cauldrons and other Halloween items at the construction station.
We have been learning a rhyme about baking so this Friday we used paint and cotton buds to do some Pointillism art of a cake.
Aistear - The Restaurant
We have been learning all about the restaurant during Aistear. We took turns being waiters and waitresses, chefs, reception staff, customers and delivery drivers at the drama station. For art we made our own menus using pictures from shop brochures. We built restaurant buildings and all the things you might find inside during construction. We also loved using playdough for messy play to make different foods for our restaurants.
