We are delighted to be taking part in the Music Generation Ceol na nÓg music programme this year in 1st and 2nd class. Through a weekly workshop, pupils will have the opportunity to explore the world of music through fun and interactive activities with a highly experienced musical tutor, Gráinne Hambly.
This month, through the theme of Autumn, the lesson focused on integrating creative movement activities through music. As you can see from the photos, the girls and boys really enjoyed using the scarves as Autumn leaves to explore different musical concepts. Maith sibh, a chaillíní & a bhuachaillí.
In September, 1st and 2nd class enjoyed listening to and reading the story “Roy, A Tale of a Singing Zebra” – a story about following your dreams, making friends and new adventures. We used the story as a stimulus for creating some Art. The boys and girls really enjoyed creating their zebra designs and experimenting with different shape patterns to create cool zebra stripes. The finished creations look great!
Did you know? Zebras are actually black with white stripes! Here is a link to some other fun and interesting facts about zebras.
It’s Christmas Eve and Santa’s in a mood! He’s seen too many episodes of Supernanny and thinks children don’t deserve presents anymore, so he goes on strike!
As Mrs. Claus and the elves show him snapshots of family life, will he realise that Christmas is still a time of giving, caring and sharing? You bet he will, and so will you in this celebration of all that is good about Christmas… and about children!
