Nibbler’s Aistear Adventures is a comprehensive resource for the delivery of the Aistear programme for junior and senior infants in Irish primary schools. It is the only full programme for Aistear developed, thus far, in Ireland.
Aistear emphasises holistic and integrated learning, and like Aistear, the Curriculum is founded on the principle of the integration of learning.
“Children learn many different things at the same time. What they learn is connected to where, how and with whom they learn.” (NCCA, 2009, p.10).
It is encouraged that Aistear is taught across the curriculum, but is this integration happening? It can be difficult for teachers to source and provide ideas for integrating Aistear in this way.
Nibbler’s Aistear Adventures is a resource that seamlessly and simultaneously integrates all elements of the infant programme right across the curriculum.
Each theme is integrated across Language (English and Gaeilge), mathematics, Aistear stations (playdough, sand, water, sensory, construction, junk art, small world) and cross curricular with history, geography, science, SPHE, art, physical education, music etc.
An opportunity to integrate the basics of coding and problem solving with the resource is also available, as is the provision of oral language and vocabulary development (with as little as 10 minutes each day) linked into each theme.
“For the young child, the distinctions between subjects are not relevant: what is more important is that he or she experiences a coherent learning process that accommodates a variety of elements.” (Primary school Curriculum p.16)
My aim with Nibbler’s Aistear Adventures resource is to seamlessly and simultaneously integrate all elements of the infant programme in a wholistic way through play.
