We have to sincerely thank the Parents Association for purchasing a half set for Jaggo blocks for the school. They have proved an invaluable resource for Aistear in Junior Infants where they will be used throughout the year for opened ended play, problem solving and team work. They can be used for any theme in Aistear, but worked particularly well for this month’s theme of “construction” – as you can see from Ms. Fitzmaurice’s Junior Infants who who went so far as to build the “Great Wall Of China”! The other fantastic thing about the Jaggo blocks is that older children can also play with them too and Ms. Kilboy’s 1st Class had a great time building with them on Friday when the Junior Infants had gone home. It’s great to see a resource that can be universally used throughout the school and it certainly is a major investment for the children’s learning experience in school.
