Aistear - Learning Through Play

Aistear is the new way of looking at play and developing learning situations based on play. 


Children love to play, and it often mirrors what is important in their lives. 


Aistear uses four themes:

Well-being

Identity and Belonging

Communicating

Exploring and Thinking 


These themes connect and overlap with each other to assist children’s learning and development.




So far Senior Infants have covered a variety of topics that include:


The farm


The bakery


The circus


Santa’s workshop


Under the sea
