Friends on the Farm in February

February was a fantastic month with lots of excitement in our infant classes. We had lots of fun in Aistear. Our theme was ‘The Farm’ and we were very luck y to have one of our mum’s visit our class. She told us lots about what type of work happens on the farm and how she feeds the baby animals. The children had lots of questions for her!

We played with lots of farm toys during Aistear. We enjoyed the farm shop and playing with the animals in the ‘small world’ area. We also used playdough and junk art to make vegetables and things we find on the farm, however I think the most fun was making a mess in the soil with the tractors and shovels!

As spring arrives (slowly) we decided to plant some seeds too. We have learned that plants need soil, water and sunshine so we are hoping that we will have some lovely flowers budding very soon.
