The Farm Shop Play Area 馃殰

This month the children are busy learning all about life on the farm. This has been integrated into their Aistear play groups. The children are exploring how a farm is run using a range of materials and equipment.

The role playing area is a farm shop where the children shop for local produce from the farm that has been delivered by the farmer. There is also a shop keeper, a shop assistant, customers and even a shop assistant running the online orders!

Another station is the tuff tray where the children run their own farm using the farm animals, farmer and tractor. 馃殰聽

There are also very fun play groups taking place with some groups working on making produce from the farm using their playdough, some groups making art using recycled materials and other groups getting to milk our friend B贸!
