As we learned the history of St. Valentine’s Day we linked our art this week with some pretty Valentine’s cards & pictures.
We have recently learned to knit in our class. How exciting!! We have to say a huge thank you to Anne who has helped us create all our little creatures. We adore our new furry friends 🙂
As we studied Chinese New Year in S.E.S.E. we based our art around this theme in January
As part of SESE we looked in some detail at Italy. We learned about the Carnival of Venice & we made some masks to get into the spirit of it.
The weather was kind to us last Friday as we made our way to Newgrange to see the wonderful ancient passage tomb. The children were thoroughly engaged by our tour guide Gerry who further explained the historical importance of the site. Making our way inside the tomb to the central chamber was the highlight of the day.
Fourth Class studied some of the large buildings of the world in English during the month of October. To explore elements of building, balance, structure etc. we also did some construction in arts & crafts. Here are some pictures of this great work in progress.
