Theme: The Rainforest

We did so much work on the Rainforest this month. We researched different topics in groups and created powerpoints about deforestation, the Amazon, animals, insects and birds of the rainforest, as well as many more. We presented these to our class. We did the most UNBELIEVABLE toucan art, but our teacher Laura forgot to take a picture of it!!

Have a look at some of the chalk pastel snakes which are also fantastic…

Theme: The Normans

The class created amazing Norman Medieval Castles as part of their homework. The snow meant we had lots of time to plan our constructions!!!!!

 

Seachtain na Gaeilge

Bhaineamar an-taitneamh as Seachtain na Gaeilge an bhlian seo. Bhí céilí agus tráth na gceist ar siúl. Bhí ceoilchoirm mar ar deireadh an seachtain agus bhí rang a ceathair ar fheabhas! Go raibh maith agat múinteoir Grace agus comhairdeaghas na Gaeilgeoirí na Seachtaine!

Kensuke’s Kingdom

We continued our work on Kensuke’s Kingdom. We focused on mapping and we did large scale co-operative group art projects which turned out amazingly well.

The Berlin Wall:

We learned a lot of information about the Berlin Wall. We found it really interesting and were shocked to hear about the lives of many people in some parts of Germany at the time. We found inspiration from many of the graffiti images painted on the Western side of the Berlin Wall and designed blocks representing freedom and unity.

Christmas Market Art:

We designed Christmas Market stalls as part of a group art project.

 

Step 1 was drawing the stalls and inserting all the fine details.

 

Step 2 was painting the stalls.

 

Step 3 was completing the roof and voilá!

 

Germany Mini Projects

We researched different German topics in pairs and created some visual  learning posters.
