Roisin’s junior infant class enjoy Aistear every week. Some of the other classes joined in too 🙂
In September, the theme for Aistear was the Doctors Office and The Hospital. The Doctor was very busy helping patients with sore tummy, broken arms, chicken pox, vomiting bugs and flu! We enjoyed being doctors, nurses and patients in our role play area. We made our own clinic which had a reception, a waiting room and the doctors office. In role play, our patients made appointments to see the doctor or nurse by calling our secretary. We learned the names and signs of the instruments the doctor uses. We also learned about nurses, paramedics, first Aid, clinics and hospitals.
We read x-rays and gave injections. We have also learned how to use a stethoscope, a thermometer, to check someone’s reflex and how to write prescriptions.
We also set up a pharmacy where our sick patients can go to fill their prescriptions. Here are some pictures of the children hard at work!
