This week Room 13 got to take a virtual tour of the Hugh Lane gallery. We learned about the history of the gallery and even about Hugh Lane. We learned about a lot of different artists, their works, and what an artists studio looks like. One artist in particular made our tummy’s rumble – Francis Bacon. 🥓 Thank you to Jane @TheHughLane for such a great virtual workshop!
We were busy in the computer room working on Spellings For Me this week.
The spellings are getting more challenging but we are really enjoying using the programme!
Room 5 have been working very hard on their Christmas stories in Gaeilge. We invited the classes to a virtual reading of them. It was great fun and we hope you enjoyed them!
We have been spending the last few weeks working on both our procedural writing and oral language skills. We worked hard in our pods to create our own procedure presentations remembering both the procedure writing structure and language features. Check out the following videos to see our final masterpieces!
Pod 1: How to Make a Christmas Wreath
Pod 2: How to Make Hot Chocolate
Pod 3: How to Make Smores
Pod 4: How to Make Rocky Road
We are having a great time preparing for the holidays!
The pupils in Room 5 were learning all about procedural writing and decided to make some tutorial videos using the procedural skills we learned.
We worked in our pods to write the scripts (remembering our procedural language), we prepared the onjects that we needed and we shot our tutorial videos.
We hope you enjoy them.
