Oíche Shamhna: Rang a dó

This morning we had some scary monsters in second class! We had witches, skeletons, zombies and loads more! They all made a great effort to dress up and some even made their costumes from scratch.

Hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween!

Here are some photos of these scary monsters.

 

 

Going batty in 1st Class

Well done to everyone who came to school dressed up for Halloween today – we had a ‘spook-tacular’ day in Room 9 and even got to go to a disco in the hall. In Art, we created bats from old egg cartons.

Wishing everyone a lovely break and a safe Halloween!

World War II

In Room 12 we have been learning about World War II. We have also been reading The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne . In art we used colour mixing to depict images of the Blitz. In science we used simple circuits to make watch towers,

which were used during the war to look out for enemy planes.

Art in 4th Class

The children in 4th class have enjoyed exploring their creative sides through art over the past few weeks. We have used a variety of skills in creating our art.

We learned about the artist James Rizzi, an American artist who creates animated style pictures – full of colour, with a solid black outline. He’s also not a fan of rectangles! We created skyscrapers inspired by him using oil pastels.

We created autumnal prints – we collected fallen leaves from our school-yard. We began with black paper, white paint and some leaves. We printed the leaves onto the black paper. Then we used sponges to print some cool and warm colours around them.

We used our colour mixing skills to create a sunset background for our Halloween painted silhouettes. We sketched a design before drawing and painting it onto our A3 sunset backgrounds with black paint. Our theme was Impossibly Haunted Houses.

Finally we constructed witches. Using an egg carton, paint, some felt and wool we created our wicked witches.

Have a look at our art below:

Music Generation

The Ark Class were delighted to welcome back Music Generation every Wednesday for their music lessons. The children really enjoy taking part in the lessons, learning the new songs and getting to explore and interact with a new and different instrument each week. It is always lots of fun.
