Who receives the most Valentine’s Day cards?
Well rumour has it – teachers do!
Just look at the fabulous digital artwork by our infants above. Below see the beautiful roses and chocolate brownies made by our 5th class boys for their loved ones!
Thank you boys for all the lovely cards, kind words and pictures – we send you all our sweetest, happiest wishes.
Research shows that construction toys such as LEGO can improve a wide range of mental aptitudes in children, such as spatial intelligence and hand-eye coordination. LEGO is used to make toy buildings, vehicles, creatures, machines, anything imaginable – and these little plastic bricks can be taken apart and put together as often as you’d like. That means endless creative, fun and educational play. One of our sixth class pupils took some time out from his books to build this fine machine to celebrate National LEGO day.
Third class recently had the opportunity to participate in a virtual workshop with the Hugh Lane Gallery exploring the work “The Eve of St. Agnes” by Harry Clarke. The artist Megan Scott provided a very interesting introduction to the work of Harry Clarke. The Gallery sent us sketch pads where we used Harry Clarke’s stained glass window “The Eve of St. Agnes” to inspire our own sketches. Meghan then taught us the technique of sgraffito to create our very own stained glass windows.
