Over the past few weeks, we have been very busy here in Room 7! In art, we used 'Line' and 'Form' as techniques to create our 'Selfie Portraits'. We also used finger printing to create our 'Autumn Trees'.
In Drama, we used the story of 'Oisín in Tír na nÓg' as our inspiration. In our groups we used mime, still imaging and thought tracking to act out various parts of the story. We then created 'Conscience Alley' by joining our hands in pairs to make a long arch. We 'created' his conscience by whispering the various thoughts that were going through his mind. One by one we walked through the arch, listening to the whispers and imagining what it would have been like to be Oisín as he was trying to decide whether to stay in Tír na nÓg or to return to Ireland.
In History, we learned all about the Vikings - where they came from, how they lived and what language they used. We then wrote our own names in 'Futhark' which was their alphabet.
