First Class

First class have been keeping busy this term. They have been drawing scarecrows, studying the artwork of David Hockney, working on their collective nouns and enjoying nature walks when the weather is dry. They have used the iPads to illustrate Irish myths and legends and have been working hard on their tables and spellings.

The pupils have been singing pop songs, reading in the Cúinne Scéalaíochta and playing games during P.E.

They have been learning how to do cursive handwriting and each day the best handwriter in the class has a chance to sit at the Bord Scríobhnóireachta!

In preparation for Halloween the pupils made spooky skeletons which can be seen hanging on their classroom door!

“The Great Wave”

As part of Creative Schools we recreated a famous painting – “The Great Wave Off Kanagawa” by Japanese artist Hokusai. Our artwork, “The Great Wave”, was made from tiles which we broke into tiny pieces to create a beautiful mosaic effect.

Each child in the school stuck a tile onto the artwork representing the inclusive nature of art in our school.

“The Great Wave” is hanging in our school hall for everyone to enjoy, appreciate and interpret whatever way they wish!
