Ben brought a robot to school. The robot has four senses and can talk. The robot is 12 years old. It will say anything Ben tells it to say. We all asked questions about the robot. Ben shows us how to attach the senses to the robot. He got the robot at the University of Limerick. Everyone found it very interesting.

Picasso 2nd Class were reading about Picasso this week. They learned he liked lines, shapes and colour. He like to change the way things looked and sometimes he made faces look strange. We then tried to do the same and we had great fun.
Winter Trees In visual Art, we enjoyed exploring colour, line and shape when making our Winter trees. We thought the contrast of the black tree and bright orange background made it very pleasing visually.
We were also busy making Snow Globes
