Early Start



Early Start is a one-year pre-school programme.

Sharon and Maria run the Early Start classroom.

Welcome everyone to Scoil Mhuire Junior and to the Early Start Web Page. Here we will provide information about what the children are doing in school. We will also have some photos of the children at work and at play. We will also have photos of their excellent work.

In Early Start , we use “Aistear” which is “The Early Childhood Curriculum Framework”.  It encourages play. Play helps children to develop a broad range of skills and understandings.

This fortnight, we learned the rhyme “Humpty Dumpty”. We read the  stories  “Monkey and Me” and “Where’s Spot?”.   We played with lots of toys. We did some colouring and we played with play dough.

We learned some of our classroom routines – Where to put our school bags, Where to hang our coats, How to answer to the roll call, How to create and sit in our story corner, What do do with our lunch plates.

We have had a great couple of weeks.
