Edvard Munch

The Scream is the popular name given to multiple versions of a composition by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. The German title Munch gave these works is Der Schrei der Natur (The Scream of Nature). The works show a figure with an agonised expression against a landscape with a tumultuous orange sky.

Día de los Muertos

The Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico and other parts of Latin America. It is known as Día de los Muertos. This festival is celebrated to remember loved ones who have died. Here are a few of our sugar skulls (catrinas). 

 

Maths Week Ireland

Riddle… Crossing the River

A farmer is trying to cross a river. He is taking with him a rabbit, carrots and a fox, and he has a small raft. He can only bring 1 item a time across the river because his raft can only fit either the rabbit, the carrots or the fox. How does he cross the river?

(You can assume that the fox does not eat the rabbit if the man is present, you can also assume that the fox and the rabbit are not trying to escape and run away)

Trees, Trees, Trees

Rang a 2 have been learning about the trees we have here in Ireland. Did you know that it is considered bad luck to cut down a hawthorn tree? Or that oak trees have a lifespan of up to 1000 years? Here we are on a tree walk identifying fallen leaves.

 

Ana Serrano

Born in Los Angeles in 1983, Ana Serrano uses cardboard to create sculptural works of art inspired the cultural contexts in her life (Mexican and American). We loved the vibrant colours that Ana used here in Rang a 2. Here is a video from KCET that we really enjoyed watching. Enjoy 🙂

Take a look at some of our art inspired by La Yarda below.

Poetry

“You can find poetry in your everyday life, your memory, in what people say on the bus, in the news, or just what’s in your heart.” —Carol Ann Duffy

Well love poetry here in Rang a 2!

Here is a selection of our thoughts about the poem, The ‘Veggy’ Lion.

Here are some poems we wrote after reading The Squirdle by Spike Milligan.

Fantastic Mr. Fox

We are enjoying our novel this term. Here are some of our visualisations based on our favourite chapter so far, The Terrible Tractors!

 

Architecture – Bridges

As part of a whole school theme of Architecture we researched famous bridges around the world and also here at home! Our favourite is the bright red Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco, designed by the architect Joseph B. Strauss. We had a go at designing some bridges ourselves 🙂
