Our annual Art Exhibition takes place today. The wonderful pieces of art that we created in class will be exhibited in the hall. Our parents have been invited to the school to view our magnificent works of art.
What imagination and creativity?
5th class room 6 designed and constructed these beautiful pieces of art.
Fourth class have been invited to take part in a Children’s Art Competition as a part of the Festival of Russian Culture (11th – 18th February 2018). The competition is based on The Goldfish, a story by the famous Russian writer Alexander Pushkin.
The story helped to inspire the students in fourth class to design and create their artwork.

We have been busy creating some masterpieces in room 10. We have been concentrating on using line for effect; inspired by Georges Roualt and blending shades of colour in our paintings. We hope you enjoy looking at just some of our lovely work!
Today we had our first ‘Book Character Parade’. We all chose a character from our favourite book to dress up as. Everyone put in a huge effort. Well done and Happy Halloween from 3rd class!
This week for art we loved constructing our own skeletons using glue and cotton buds! Before making our own skeletons we had read the story ‘Funny Bones’ in which the main characters were three skeletons- the big skeleton, little skeleton and the dog skeleton.
We are all big Dublin GAA supporters in Room 18. Today we made a lovely poster for the All Ireland Football Final on Sunday in Croke Park where Dublin will play Mayo for the second year in a row. Last year we got to hold the Sam Maguire cup when it came to our school. We hope we get to see it again this year! Best of luck to both teams.
We really enjoyed using crepe paper to create our Autumn Trees using the colours of yellow, orange, red and brown.
Second class loved working with clay this week and enjoyed making ‘little monsters’. We rolled, pinched and pulled the clay and used clay tools to add details. We can’t wait to paint them next week and see the end result!
Last week we made St. Brigid’s crosses in Mr. Lynch’s class. The St. Brigid’s cross is a small cross woven from rushes. It was first made by St. Brigid using rushes that she gathered when she was tending to a dying chieftain in the 5th century. She used the rushes to weave a cross while she comforted the chieftain.
It was tricky to make them but it was great fun!
