Junior & Senior Infants

Senior Infants have been very busy this month.  We have been doing the topic of The Farm in Aistear and we loved setting up farms in The Small World and painting pictures of farms.  As Gaeilge the children have been learning about Eadaí and Naomh Pádraig.  We learnt songs and poems to celebrate Lá Fhéile Pádraig.  In Maths we have been learning about the number 9 and we made our own football teams that had 9 football players.  We have also learned lots of songs and poems this month.  We particularly enjoyed “Busy Farmer Ben” and “Oats and Beans and Barley Grow” and lots of other poems and songs about The Farm.

We are enjoying our dance lessons with Ciara and we learnt some Irish dances.  We have great fun in GAA and AI.  We have been playing really fun games and practicing our skills.

Mrs Cheryl Poole came to visit us and Junior Infancy and read us two brilliant farm books that she wrote.  We really enjoyed listening to her stories.

First & Second Class

Third & Fourth Class

Fifth & Sixth Class

We have been very busy learning about the artist-Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944). Kandinsky was a Russian painter and he believed that colours had a soul. Kandinsky explored what colours mean and the feelings associated with them. Many people believe that he was the first abstract painter. Please take a look at our abstract pictures and our ‘concentric circle’ paintings. Enjoy! Ms. Furney and 5th/6th class.
5th and 6th class learned about ‘Pointillism’ and the artist-George Seurat. Pointillism consists of small, painted dots used to create a pattern/picture. We created fruit bowls and we integrated art with the topic of Aboriginal people in history. I think you’ll agree that the pupils created beautiful pictures and wonderful indigenous art, just like the Aborigines!

DIGITAL SCHOOLS:   Following our ‘Digital School of Excellence’ award last year, Ms. Furney has continued with Digital Schools work.  Ms Furney informs teacher of various websites that they can use across many curricular areas.  The pupils benefit greatly from the use of technology, websites and apps to bring topics alive in the classroom through using the interactive whiteboards and Ipads.  Ms Furney also attended a course recently which was based on Digital Learning and she picked up many more ideas and ways to incorporate Digital Learning into the classroom.  Watch this space for further information and updates!
