Busy Bees in Room 10!

Busy Bees in Room 10!

The boys and girls have been very busy creating some beautiful art pieces! During the month of September the children learned all about healthy eating. They used chalk pastels on black sugar paper to create some very effective pictures.

During the month of October we started our class novel ‘The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark’. Plop, the main character, is a fat, fluffy barn owl with knackety knees who is afraid of the dark. The boys and girls made beautiful pictures of Plop watching fireworks. They used cotton wool for his fluffy tummy and oil pastels to create the fireworks.

September in Second Class

September in Second Class

In Ms. Burke’s second class, the children have been learning all about food. In English, they used procedural writing techniques to write How to Make a Healthy Sandwich and How to Make a Cup of Tea. In Science, they looked at The Food Pyramid and later discovered how much sugar is really in the liquids we drink. In Art, they produced beautiful fruit bowls. To top it all off, they will sing Food Glorious Food for Assembly this Friday, as well as saying the poem Duilleoga Deasa.
