We had so much fun dressing up for Halloween, just look at our costumes! Don’t we all look fabulous?
What a great way to end our first eight weeks in 1st and 2nd Class. We have worked so hard and look forward to being back at school after our break for more learning and fun-filled activities.
Happy Halloween from all the boys and girls in 1st and 2nd Class!
On the Wednesday before our mid-term break we learned how to play tag rugby. We had so much fun!
We had so much fun drawing and designing our very own masks. We were all going to do Halloween masks but since we only use them once a year, we thought it would be an even better idea to pick our own theme and design our masks based on the theme. Some of us still chose a Halloween theme while others chose, Spring, Summer, Egypt, the moon and many other themes.
It took us two weeks to complete this art as we had to paint first and let that dry and then add colour to our drawings.
Our masks are something we will be able to keep forever. They are on display in our school corridor at the moment for everyone to see because we are so proud of them.
For a few weeks in October we learned all about teeth as part of our science lessons. We learned the different names for our teeth and what each tooth is used for. We know that we have 20 baby teeth and these are the teeth t the tooth fairy comes to collect before we get our permanent teeth. Here is a look at some of us doing a worksheet at the end of one of our lessons. We had to stick all the teeth into the correct places.
It was so much fun!
Our Halloween Art this year was all about focusing on bright and dark colours. We painted first and then we drew Halloween themed pictures and painted them black to create the most SPOOKtacular Silhouettes!
We were busy during the month of October doing our maths. Our focus in 1st Class was combining and partitioning sets. We loved active learning in pairs and enjoyed all the games we played. We also did so many maths challenges as part of Maths Week which also took place this month.
During the month of October we were busy working on our Oral Language skills. We loved news time each week as we had the opportunity to use the RTE Microphone. We felt like real news reporters.
Maybe some day in the future you will see some of us reporting on the Six One News!
We really enjoyed our Pop Art lesson inspired by the work of Andy Warhol. Teacher took pictures of us and printed them in black and white. We added colour by using oil pastels for the first time. We added some really cool and funky hair colours and designs that we thought best suited our personalities.
How cool is our work?
In September we were inspired by the art of Pablo Picasso. We learned so much about him and then decided to create our very own self-portrait’s.
What a wonderful first term we have had!! 5th and 6th Class have been so busy…
They investigated and researched the Romans from which impressive projects emerged. They designed and made Roman inspired pottery. In Gaeilge the pupils learned about the topics of ‘Mé Féin’ and ‘Bia’. Delicious menus and recipes were planned as a result. In Science the pupils took part in experiments based on Light which proved both successful and informative. This in turn led to individual projects on ‘The Eye’, the standard of which were truly amazing! Lots of learning and fun took place on the theme of Halloween with Picasso Frankenstein Art work, poetry, report writing on Halloween traditions not to mention engaging in a variety of games & activities and of course having a Halloween party with a movie and lots of treats! Well done on all of your hard efforts this term 5th & 6th class. Have a SPOOKTACULAR HALLOWEEN and looking forward to what our next term brings!!
