Art Unveiling- 1916 Centenary Celebrations
5th and 6th class worked on a 1916 themed art project with artist Kathleen Moroney over 10 weeks. They re-wrote the proclamation to show what it means to them today and cast it on clay. They made the life cycle of a butterfly in clay as a metaphor for the change and transformation that took place as a result of the 1916 Rising in Ireland. The finished product will be mounted on the wall in the hallway of the school.
1916 Rising Commemoration Celebrations
5th and 6th class learned loads about the 1916 Rising and showed off all of their hard work on Proclamation Day. There was singing, dancing and traditional Irish music. We performed our play as Gaeilge in the evening, thanks to Mr. McMahon for all his hard work on this. Our living museum was a big success too.
1916 Proclamation Re-written
5th and 6th class wrote a new proclamation with their wishes for the future of Ireland. This will be cast in clay as part of their 1916 commemoration art project due to be unveiled on Proclamation Day, 15th March.
Explorers Workshop – Marine Life and Biodiversity
5th and 6th class attended a very interesting workshop on marine life and biodiversity at Clare Education Centre on Friday last. They got to dissect squid as part of the workshop!
5th and 6th class presented their projects on the 1913 lockout and life in the 1900s this week. They all had the chance to teach their topic to the class using ICT, timelines, books, 3D models, drawings and posters.
