Faith Ringgold Art
We looked at the art work of the American artist, Faith Ringgold. We discussed her use of imagery and her use of themes in her work. We created our own pieces of art using fabric.
Science Week 2018
First class 1 were treated to many visitors this week for Science week. Ms. Harkin had organised lots of interesting talks and visitors, such as Dave of the Jungle, the DSPCA, Birds of Prey and Patrick, our Garden coordinator. We have had a brilliant week!
January to March 2018
Primary Colour Superheroes!
We discussed the primary colours and how strong they are, so we decided to make Superheroes from the primary colours! We had some brilliant ideas.
We have started Gaeilc Football and Hurling with Luke from Crumlin G.A.A. club. We’re having lots of fun so far! It will be on Wednesdays.
World Book Day
During World Book Day, we had lots of fun with pupils from Ms. Moriarty’s 5th class. They visited our classroom to read to us! Some of our class went to visit Ms. Moriarty’s classroom too.
We have been learning about clocks. We have been learning how to show o’clock and half past on our clocks. We still need some practice but we’re getting there!
This term we are learning all about landscape pictures.
For our first go, we looked at lots of different kinds of landscapes. We discussed perspective and how to draw things to make them look like they are very far away.
This term we were learning our 1, 2, 3s!
Benina, our irish dancing teacher, taught us irish dancing as Gaeilge. We learned the Ballaí Luimnigh (Walls of Limerick).
We thought it was ar fheabhas! Unfortunately we have finished our lessons with Benina but we are hoping to join in a céilí during Seachtain na Gaeilge!
September to December 2017
Our Self Portraits
This term we have been learning about portraits. We drew self portraits using oil pastels. We really enjoyed the process! We learned about the importance of proportions when drawing pictures of faces.
In September we discussed working together as a group and being nice to each other. We worked together to create these flower pictures!
