We enjoy taking part in the Moneenroe Art Competition each year.

Autumn and Hallowe’en with 4th, 5th & 6th Class

October has been a busy month in the senior classroom. We have been busy working on the themes of autumn and Hallowe’en. In English we wrote stories with a spooky theme for Hallowe’en. The boys and girls came up with some terrific and terrifying stories!

 

In science class we learned about materials and recycling, we looked closely at the recycling process for aluminium and glass. We then designed clothes from recycled materials.

In history we have studied Ancient Greece and learned lots of interesting facts about life in Athens and Sparta. Continuing this theme we invented a Greek character in drama and spoke in role as this character.

 

Returning to the theme of Hallowe’en in art we made these spine-chilling spider webs using silver paint and egg cartons for the spiders.

 

We also made colourful autumn trees using match sticks and tissue paper.

 

In Gaeilge we drew these Oíche Shamhna themed pictures after listening to instructions in Irish.

 

Well done 4th, 5th & 6th class on all your hard work! Wishing everyone a very Happy Hallowe’en,  enjoy the break!

A very happy Hallowe’en to everyone from 1st, 2nd & 3rd Class!  Over the past few weeks we have been quite busy learning about Hallowe’en in various subjects, including History, SPHE and Gaeilge.  The children made spooky spiders spinning their webs using various materials.  Did you know a spider has 8 eyes but despite this, they can’t see very well!

In Visual Arts, we also created spooky silhouettes!  The children drew witches, cats, bonfires and pumpkins, cut them out and placed them on orange painted paper.

We also discussed staying safe at Hallowe’en in SPHE.  To celebrate the fun aspects of Hallowe’en, the children baked cupcakes and decorated them with delicious toppings!

One of the very kind Mums in our class, Majella, made us all a delicious cupcake each with spooky icing and creations on top.  Thank you Majella!

On Friday, 25th October, the whole school dressed up and each child brought in €2 for school funds.  Here is a photo of some scary pupils in their wonderful attire on the day.  Well done boys and girls.  Have a happy and safe Hallowe’en!

October has been busy with “Autumn” and “Halloween” activities for the Junior Classroom.

We made our own paper plate owls and clay hedgehogs to support work covered in SESE.

In preparation for Halloween, the children made their own “Personalised Pumpkins” and “Spooky Spiders” in Art using paints and pastels.

The children also enjoyed eating “Bairín Breac” and making their own masks to support the Irish vocabulary they have been learning for Halloween in Gaeilge!

Guess Who?

We also made our own Halloween Cup Cakes and had great fun decorating them with spooky jellies and sweet toppings!

Finally, we all enjoyed a Homemade Halloween Jelly Cake packed with little spooky surprises and served with icecream, wafers and chocolate sauce!

 Yum Yum!!

 Happy Halloween everybody! We hope you have a lovely holiday and we’ll see you in November!

We have completed another busy month in the Senior Room. We have been painting Autumn and Hallowe’en themed pictures. Here are our Autumn Leaf Fireworks and Hallowe’en Witches!

 

 

 

 

In English we studied a poem called The Door by Miroslav Holub. We then wrote our own poems called The Door, and displayed these on doors around the school!

In science we learned all about animals which hibernate. We focused on the hedgehog, frog and bat. Here is the work we completed on hedgehogs. We also made booklets about bats and frogs, these are on display in the hallway, feel free to have a look if you’re in school!

 

Happy Hallowe’en everyone, enjoy the break!

Hallowe’en Fun in the Middle Room!

Date posted: 26th October 2012 | Category Blog, Class Work, Hallow'een, Middle Classroom, Visual Arts |

Over the past couple of weeks, we have been having some Hallowe’en Fun!  We had an Art lesson with a difference.  No brushes were used to paint our Hallowe’en Ghosts, but our feet were!  It was a messy lesson, but a memorable one!

We also got to make chocolate apples.  The apples were dipped into melted chocolate, and then covered with delicious toppings such as 100s and 1000s, marshmallows, jelly tots and smarties.  We had great fun eating them!

Of course, 2 lucky boys had to clean the bowl!!!

We also made stained glass windows with a spooky picture….

One of the Mums in our class very kindly baked cupcakes for the whole room.  They had the most delicious icing on top.  Thank you very much Majella!

Finally, we had an in-class art competition based on the theme of Hallowe’en.  Here are the winners!  Well done everybody!  Happy Hallowe’en from all the boys and girls in the middle classroom!
