Ice cream was invented in China around 2000BC.

Why? Poems Tom's class

We have been reading 'Why do the stars come out at night' by Annalena McAfee and Anthony Lewis. We have based our poems around the strucure of this book.

Recycling in first class

In first class we have been talking about recycling.  We collected materials from our recycling bins at home, brought them to school and today we used them to create 'Robbie - the recycling robot'.  He stands, very tall at the back of our classroom keeping an eye on all the recycling in our class. 



Tamasine's 2nd Class Projects on homes around the world

Muireann's 6th class - Kandinsky inspired art work

This week we have been focusing on the work of the artist Wassily Kandinsky. He was an influential Russian painter and is seen as one of the first painters of abstract works. In his later works Kandinsky focused more on geometric elements in his art - particularly circles, half-circles, angles, straight lines and curves. Have a look at our Kandinsky inspired chalk pastel pictures. See how many shapes you can spot! 

Second Class SESE

This month in second class we have been learning about weather. We discussed the different types of weather that we have, how weather is different around the world and how weather affects us. We listed items that use heat and how we can cool down if we are too hot. We made our own fans using card, lollipop sticks and straws. Have a look at some of our creations.

We decided to use chalk pastels and photography to make some space art.
