3rd Class are taking part in the CraftEd education arts project and they are kindly asking if anyone has any old newspapers or old childrens t-shirts for 8-10 year olds at home (that you won’t be needing back) that they leave them into Ms Sarsfield’s room in the coming days.
This programme is run over 5 weeks so lots of newspaper will be needed!
Ms.Sarsfield & 3rd Class
Senior Infants & First Class were very busy exploring all the beautiful colours of autumn.
Inspired by the poem ‘Duilleoga Deasa’ we used cotton buds & paint to create beautiful trees in an autumn landscape.
We also learned about how different animals, such as the native red squirrel, prepare during autumn for the coming winter season.
We then created beautiful pictures of the squirrel using a template, wax crayons, crepe paper & pva glue.
We really enjoyed shredding & sticking the crepe paper.
Junior and Senior Infants constructed their own imaginative homes. Some children also created homes for animals.
Junior Infants enjoyed learning about Minibeasts. They enjoyed a minibeast hunt around the school and collected lots of different minibeasts including snails, slugs, worms, spiders and even a frog! The children also made their own minibeasts using playdoh.
