Drama

The children at Wandesforde school partake in many drama activities. An external provider comes in each Spring term to teach the children for a number of weeks. In 2008,2009 and 2011, the children put on wonderful shows for the parents and school community. Our next show is planned for Christmas 2012, so, watch this space!

November has been another busy month for the Junior Classroom. Take a look at all their hard work below!

In Religion, the children have been learning about the Story of Jonah and so they made their own whales out of polystyrene cups!

We have had great fun singing all the well known Nursery Rhymes in Music and the children made their own Nursery Rhyme Booklet of rhymes they have learned.

 In English, the children have learned a lot of new letters this month. They even made some “Pretty Paper Peacocks” to support work on the letter “Pp”

We all enjoyed “Looking and Responding” to the work of the American Artist, Georgia O’ Keefe whose most famous paintings were based on flowers. Take a look below at the children’s own interpretations of her floral artwork!

In Drama, Funky Kids have kept us on our toes this month and the children have had great fun designing their own costumes as well as the backdrop for their show. Take a sneak peek below at a sample of what’s in store for you all at the Funky Kids Show on Monday, 10th December and Tuesday, 11th December!

In P.E. the children had their first experience of Gymnastics this year and they really enjoyed all the work on benches and mats

Finally in SPHE, the children learned about their emotions and created their own “Feeling Face” to show us how we can sometimes feel!

Well done to you all for a great month’s work!

In Funky Kids we do lots of fun things, such as painting, playing games, making T-shirts, singing, dancing and having fun.

We are going to put on a show on 25th of March. There will be singing, dancing and ltos more. The people who do this with us are Dennis and Olivia. They go to schools around Ireland to teach the children about Drama.  The whole school will be in the show and DVDs of the show will be available afterwards.

Funky Kids – Senior Classroom

Date posted: 7th March 2011 | Category Drama, Funky Kids, Senior Classroom |

At the end of March, we will perform a show.  Every week Denis and Olivia come to our school on a Friday. They teach us dance moves and some songs. They pick a topic to teach each classroom. 

We made our own costumes and with the help of Denis and Olivia, we painted a huge backdrop. 

We also played games and acted out scenarios.  It has helped our self confidence and imagination skills. 

We are all looking forward to the show at the end of March.
