We spent this afternoon making eye-catching banners for the camogie and hurling finals taking place in Croke Park next week. We practiced chanting, “Let’s Go St. Clare’s, Let’s Go!” while keeping a tapping, clapping beat, and are now really good at it. At home time, we proudly chanted while holding up our banners as those with scooters and bikes passed by our room. We enjoyed this moment a lot and so did the other students passing by. Everyone in Room 18 wishes both teams the very best of luck on Tuesday!
4th class getting creative this afternoon. Croke Park will be a sea of colour with their posters on Tuesday!
The anticipation is building here in St Clare’s. Our Hurling and Camogie teams are preparing and our school community is buzzing!
Our Playground Leaders are doing a great job helping out on the junior yard.
4th class are back doing their classroom-based physical activity breaks. #10@10 #activeschool
Congratulations to our camogie team who won their semi-final yesterday. Such a fantastic display of skill, determination and teamwork among each player. Bring on Croke Park next week for the final!
Today we enjoyed a process art lesson inspired by Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ painting. First, we looked at the beautiful image for inspiration. We discussed the different shades of blue and the swirling, whirling clouds and moon. Next, we set up our foil canvasses by covering 6 pieces of cardboard in tinfoil. Then, we squirted blue, white and yellow paint onto our foil canvasses and began painting! Some of us used our fingers and some of used paintbrushes. We all loved painting on the slippery, reflective surface, as well as the crunchy sound it made.
