We were learning about procedural writing in Room 5. We were learning different magic tricks.
We got to perform our procedural magic tricks for the rest of our class.
Mr. Nally and Ms. Hanrahan were even part of our audience. Our minds were blown with the great magic.
Well done everyone!
We were painting our clay monsters today! They look great. One coat of gloss to go and then were finished our masterpieces!
We went to Leinster Cricket Club today to start some cricket lessons.
It was such great fun and our coaches were great!
We started our clay monster creations in Room 5.
Stay tuned for the finished product!
The 5th classes have been working hard on their Irish history around 1916.
We learned all about different places in Dublin and the role they played in The Easter Rising 1916.
We went today to lots of the sites around Dublin and got to see the historical buildings for ourselves.
We went to Dublin Castle, City Hall, The GPO, THE Royal College of Surgeons and St. Stephen’s Green.
We even got to see and airshow to celebrate 100 years of the Irish Air Corps. It was a great day filled with fun history and facts.
It was International Women’s Day on 8th March. We chose to discuss Women in art and we learned that in the major art museums in America 87% of all the art in their collections is by male artists. We had class discussions about why there are not as many art pieces by women in these galleries and why we think this might be the case.
For International Women’s Day, we decided to take inspiration from a female artist called Maria Prymachenko. Maria Prymachenko is known for her unusual and colourful art. When she was a child, Maria was taken ill with polio and this painful illness had a big impact on her. Her family said Maria grew to be very thoughtful and considerate, having lots of compassion for all living things and so we decided this was why much of her art featured plants and animals.
We hope you like our art!
Last Wednesday room 10 went out to the green to have a look at some amazing books reviews that were written during the St. Louis Reading Rocks Readathon!
