In 5th and 6th class, we discussed the Irish artist Jack B. Yeats. We then used some of his painting and 'extended' them! Here are some of our creations!
We discussed Celtic art and looked at different examples. We talked about Celtic knots and how these knots are complete loops that have no start or finish.
We then used this as inspiration to create our own Celtic knots!
5th and 6th classes greatly enjoyed reading and exploring the themes within the novel 'A winter of spies' by Gerard Whelan.
In 5th class, we spoke about our loved ones who have passed away and how in the month of November we take time to remember them.
5th class then wrote the name of the person that they wanted to remember and designed a flower for them so that we could create a garden of remembrance for our loved ones.
Andy Goldsworthy is a renowned British artist who works with found natural elements, and his work has been inspiring children and adults alike all around the world! 6th class had great fun coming up with their own creations using the environment around them!
In 5th class, we were looking at and discussing the work of Andy Goldsworthy who creates nature sculptures and land art. We then went outside to create our very own nature sculptures!
In 5th class we have been talking a lot about our new rules in school to keep us safe from Covid 19. We have been talking about how school is different this year and what we can and can’t do in school now.
We have also been talking about how important it is to keep our distance in school and stay within our pods and bubbles.
We have also been practicing good hand hygiene throughout the day.
We are very excited to be back and can't wait to see what the new year brings!!
Many thanks to Dermot and Oisín who were teaching 5th & 6th classes the names of the different parts to the drum-kit during our Music Generation class. We enjoyed having a go playing the drums with Dermot also!
Well done to 5th & 6th classes who performed their very own version of Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol' on Friday the 13th of December. Pupils performed admirably and many thanks to all who helped out in the intensive preparations and who were able to attend on the day. We hope you enjoyed it!
