The Ark in Senior Infants
This month Senior Infants have been doing a lot of work with The Ark Cultural Centre. We went to watch a preview performance of their new dance show The Race inspired by Aesop’s Fables. The choreographer wanted us to give lots of opinions and ideas before the show opened to the public.
We also have been doing Art lessons from the Ark in Schools Project. Different works of Art have been brought into the school and this term we had
“Ballinskelligs” by Lorraine Wall. The children discussed the picture and then sketched their own landscape using quick movement just like the artist used. We then drew our own sandscape using colouring pencils. The final step will be when we paint our seascape.
Teddy Bear’s Picnic
Junior and Senior Infants were joined in Merrion Square by their parents and their favourite teddies for a picnic in the sun. After having a delicious lunch they read stories to their teddies and completed a factfile all about their teddies. A huge thank you to Ms. Byrne for organising and to so many parents for joining in the fun.
FAI Women’s World Cup Tour
Our school’s girls football team were extremely lucky to be invited to the FAI Women’s World Cup Tour Blitz in Irishtown Stadium last week. Our school was picked from a hat after our excellent performance at the FAI SPAR 5s tournament earlier in the year.
