About the ‘Starting Big School’ Group Learning Journal

This open-ended A3 journal has a cover beautifully illustrated by Oliver Moore and Stephanie Morley.

The Starting Big School bumper learning journal is an excellent tool to capture the children’s transition from preschool to primary school. It can be used to record the specific activities and initiatives that take place to help children be ready for school. It is, therefore, an ideal documenting tool that will demonstrate your approach to the Department of Education and Skills (DES) when inspected. Like all the journals in this series the Aistear themes and goals are presented for easy linkage and the large blank pages are a clear canvass to record your approach and the children’s emerging interests.
