May 2017 Learning Story Winners and Highly Commended

Letters to Keep

Happy Days, Ballyporeen, Tipperary

Here is a collection of 3 learning stories from Happy Days, Ballyporeen. These stories demonstrate the power of story in capturing relationships, activities, dispositions, interests, communication and in particular the emotional experiences of the children and educators involved. How wonderful and simple this method of capturing practice is for parents, educators and most importantly for the children.

No-Bot the Robot

Ballymore Community Childcare, Co. Westmeath

When the children of Ballymore decided to make their very own robot the materials available to them made this possible.  They constructed the boxes, decorated it with paint and paper and with the help of Samuel’s daddy they even motorised it.  The children had their very own, home-made robot that they could control and drive around the room.  What a wonderful playful experience for the children of Ballymore.
