Amazing Artists!

Amazing Artists!

In Room 8, the boys and girls have created beautiful pieces of art over the months of November and December. Just before the Hallowe’en break, they had begun reading The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark and completed Plop (the main character) fascinated by fireworks.

First up in November though, they made colourful emoji inspired faces. The whole class loved this activity! Next, they created beautiful swans. They had read The Children of Lir in History and discovered how Aoife turned Lir’s four children into swans. Then, they were learning about 2-D shapes and so they made shape faces in Maths. After this, they moved on to constructing snowmen using clay. They were very excited to work with the clay. They completed steps on how to build a snowman in English after. Finally, they created fabulous Christmas cards and if you are lucky to receive it, there’s a splendid artistic surprise inside!

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.
