Welcome to Fourth Class
Easter Clay Crafts
We busied ourselves in the lead up to Easter working with clay in our Art Class. Hence, our Easter display is adorned with Easter Bunnies, eggs, baskets, chicks and many many more!
We, in Rang 4 undertook a project in conjunction with Lifetime Lab whereby we researched’ The Merrows’, created a piece of artwork on canvas, wrote a poem & a recount on this theme. This project was very much team based and we each were assigned to groups and worked collaboratively to complete this project. This will be exhibited in LifeTime Lab during ‘Seafest’ (6th-9th June).
Our visit to Deerpark CBS
On Friday 22nd March, 4th and 5th class were privileged to spend a day as a secondary school student. What a fabulous day! We participated in 3 interactive lessons i.e. Woodwork, Art and Science. In woodwork we EACH made a wooden boat. The Art session focused on the colour wheel which followed with a painting session to cement this learning. Next,we worked as scientists in The Science Laboratory looking at animal skulls, carrying out floating and sinking experiments, static electricity experiments and finally the science teacher concluded the session with a ‘CUSTARD BOMB’. Our day ended with a ‘PETIT DÉJEUNER’ complements of The French Department. Go raibh míle maith agaibh go léir!!!

Drawings & Paintings of ‘The Freisian Cow’
In Geography, we learned about the farming industry in Ireland & linked it with our Art lesson by drawing and painting a Freisian Cow.
Chess has recommenced in Rang 4 with Paul every Thursday afternoon. This involves the children doing a lot of problem solving and are embracing the challenges each game poses. Well done a chailíní!
Still Imaging/Tableaux based on ‘Under The Hawthorn Tree’
This week in our Art lesson, we concentrated on drawing and shading. Hence, we realised that shading made our drawings more effective and brought them to life in a more realistic manner.
On Tuesday 12th February, we made our way to ‘Lifetime Lab’ and attended a workshop on ‘Forces’. We learned how air can make things move, how magnets can make things move by pushing or pulling magnetic materials, the effects of friction on movement and how Air Resistance can slow down falling things. We learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed our day out.
Creative! Artistic! Talented!Works of Art!
We researched, looked at and planned our individual button silhouettes carefully prior to this activity. Super work to be applauded!
