Creative Schools

The boys and girls are thoroughly enjoying our bird watching area. We have very keen bird watchers who have reported many sightings of birds back to their class. It is a wonderful interest and it is creating great discussions about our native birds.

Another aspect of our creative schools plan that has been put in place is our outdoor chalkboards. The children love this new creative outlet during their break times. A huge thank you to Seamus Ryan for kindly creating our flower chalkboards. It is very much appreciated by all in Scoil Mochaomhóg Naofa.

Music in 1st and 2nd Class

1st and 2nd class were recently learning about dynamics. They used their whiteboards to respond to loud and soft sounds. They then made instruments. 1st class made shakers, different children were tasked with making loud and soft sounding shakers. They used a variety of materials to create the desired sound. 2nd class made xylophones. They used their xylophone to play some nursery rhymes.

Artwork in 1st and 2nd

1st and 2nd class celebrated World Dot Day by creating some Peter Reynold’s inspired artwork.

The children also designed flowers as part of a collaborative project.

Most recently, they took inspiration from the story ‘Mouse Paint’ to experiment with the colour wheel.

Project Work

The children then worked with their group to present their information as a poster and then present it orally to the class. They did a fantastic job!
