Over the past few weeks we have been busy rehearsing for our annual Christmas show. we decided to concentrate on our music perfomance this year with every student from 3rd to 6th learning tin whistle and accordion. We also performed the song " Hard Knock Life " from the musical Annie with a dance routine. We also sang some carols and performed a rendition of the famous poem " A visit from St Nicholas" by Clement Clarke Moore. Our elf Jingles also hung around our classroom for the month of December. we would like to take this oppertunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Here are a few pictures from rehearsals and the night of the show.
Ms Mckiernan taught us to draw our facial features and how to mix colours to make skin colour. Here are some of our finished self portraits. See can you guess who is who. ? 😊
3rd and 4th class, together with their teacher Ms McKiernan are delighted to be back at school and excited to see what the year holds. We will try and keep our blog updated about events, news and projects we are working on in class. Here are some portraits of the awesome students in 3rd and 4th class this year. Have a great year everyone!
We had a very busy December in Scoil Mhuire. I hope you all enjoyed our Christmas show. We also managed to get lots of art done in December. Here are some pictures of the displays in the hallway.
We made snowglobes by painting paper plates blue and decorating them with fake snow and glitter and then everyone stuck in their own picture. When they were finished we covered them with clingfilm and they were ready for display!
We also made our own Elfs. Everyone created their own elf body using coloured card and then stuck their own picture on the body.
As part of our study on procedural writing we wrote a procedure on how to build a snowman. Each child then created their own snowman with card and they were ready for display!
While learning about 3D shapes we used marshmallows and toothpicks to construct our own 3D shapes. The class worked together in pairs and everyone created a range of shapes including cubes, cuboids, triangular prisms and square based pyramids! It was lots of fun but the whole class found it very difficult not to eat the marshmallows!!! 🙈
Can you name any of the shapes we made?
