New Year Activities in the Senior Room!

2018 has been busy. In SPHE the children have been exploring the theme of Friendship and made a list of some Acts of Kindness they hope to do this year with their family & friends.

The children explored the concept of Foreshortening which is a technique used in  Perspective in Art. It creates the illusion of an object going back strongly into the distance. Take a look at the characters they created to demonstrate this concept!

In English, the children learned how to compose and write their own Limericks.

The children in the Senior Classroom made Banana Bread for the whole school using surplus bananas that were in school from our participation in Fresh Today.

Thank you to Mrs. Dooley for all her hard work in preparation for this activity 🙂

In preparation for Valentine’s Day, the children made their “Spin Art Love Hearts” using paint and a salad spinner! They are all so colourful and unique!

They also designed and made their own Valentine’s Cards. Didn’t they do a fantastic job?

In SESE, the children designed their own picture illustrating “Biodiversity” for the Green Schools In-House Art Competition. Well done on all your entries 🙂

The Senior Classroom enjoyed hosting the Annual Pancake Party at Wandesforde School. Thank you to Mrs. Dooley for all her culinary and organisational skills on this very busy morning 🙂

In Art, the children have been very busy designing their entry for this year’s Texaco Art Competition.

The children enjoyed exploring aspects of nature when local scientist, Eileen Canny came to visit and speak to us about Biodiversity.

Finally, the children responded as editors to various health & hygiene issues for the “Castlecomer Cares Magazine”. They gave some great advice to all the issues that were raised by the public! 🙂

Well done Senior pupils on such great work during the first 2 months of the year!
