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!

Hallowe’en Fun in 2nd & 3rd Class

Date posted: 28th October 2011 | Category Blog, Class Work, Hallow'een, Middle Classroom, Visual Arts |

We really enjoyed doing lots of art and craft for Hallowe’en in our classroom.  We made some masks using feathers, glittery paper and Hallowe’en shapes.  Can you guess who’s hiding behind them?  We also made some chocolate apples covered in hundreds and thousands.  It was great fun!

The finished product…

We also made Frankensteins with moving arms and legs.

Happy Hallowe’en everybody!
