We have been very busy here in 5th Class (Room 13) since we started back at school!
In art, we created our 'Selfie Portraits' - we learned how important it is to plan our drawing before we begin and the importance of starting with the eyes. We also created some rustic autumn trees by using a variety of techniques using both brown and crepe paper such as folding, crumpling, moulding and balancing.
We also used teabags to create our 'Scrolls from the Past' to show how people may have learned about the 10 Commandments after the time of Moses.
Our Poet of the Month is W.B. Yeats (1865 - 1939). We have been learning about his life and looking at some of his work. We focused on his use of imagery in 'The Lake Isle of Inisfree' and chose our favourite lines of imagery from the poem. These lines then inspired us to draw what we saw "in our minds".
I nGaeilge, bhíomar an gnóthach! Bhíomar ag foghlaim an amhráin 'Caisleán ar an Dhroim' le Ed Sheeran. Chomh maith le sin, rinneamar Greannáin iontach bunaithe ar an scéal 'Daithí agus an Turgnamh Eolaíochta'. Tóg féachaint orthu!
Take a look at some of the work we have been getting up to!
