This week for art we discussed Autumn and how the leaves change colour. We used bundled up cotton buds to create our colourful leaves. We think they turned out great!
We made the most of the sunshine yesterday and used it to help us with our art. We brought in toy animals and traced their shadow from the sun and then finished a background.
Last week we became fashion designers and created some cool outfits.
Today we performed our Christmas play 'A Christmas Toy Story'. We had great fun performing it for our family and friends. We have spent a lot of time practising and doing lovely Christmas artwork and are very proud of ourselves. We wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year.
This week in art we used the technique of pointillism developed by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac in 1886. We chose our own objects to draw. Have a look at our finished pieces!
Today we held our annual show for Seachtain na Gaeilge. Here are some pictures and videos of the children from junior infants, senior infants, 1st class, 2nd class and our school band performing songs, dramas, poems and dances. Some parents also came along to watch the performances. We all really enjoyed the show and we had fun learning lots of Irish along the way.
Lá Fhéile Pádraig Shona Daoibh!
Seachtain na Gaeilge atá ann! Tugann Seachtain na Gaeilge deis ar leith do dhaoine óga Gaeilge a labhairt agus a úsáid chomh maith le cúpla focal nua a fhoghlaim.
Today as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge, we had our Maidin Gaeilge. All of our classes did a little performance in the Hall. Junior Infants – 2nd Class were in the hall between 9.30am and 10.40am singing Irish songs and playing tunes on their tin whistles. 3rd – 6th Classes were performing between 11.15am and 12.45pm and performed mini dramas, Irish songs and poetry.
Spring has sprung in 2nd class. We have been discussing spring in class, talking about new growth and new life. This week we printed tulips using forks and we used lovely colours to make our pictures bright and colourful.
4th Class made Sock Heads in science and wrote about the procedure. We are waiting for their hair to grow!

We were busy painting this morning in Ms. Cooney's Junior Infants. We did some free painting so we got to paint what ever we liked. Some of us painted the beach, a flower, a fire engine, a see saw, a rainbow, a car, a dragon, a monster and a Skylander. We also coloured in and cut out some triangles and played with plasticine. Look at us busy at work......
