Clay & Pop Art 5th & 6th

Last month we made clay tiles inspired by Andy Warhol’s Pop Art Movement. We learned about the work of Andy Warhol and emulate his work of clay tiles. We used the element of colour from the Pop Art Movement to paint our clay tiles. We also used a photograph of ourselves and transferred the image onto a clay tile to create our pop art self portraits .we used black outline, bold colours and tones.written by Shane Hickey and EOIN WHELAN

Polar Explorers

Ms Ryan’s room had a fantastic month exploring the theme of Polar Explorers and The Emperor’s Egg. We even had an igloo in the class and were able to re-enact Tom Crean’s expeditions. We got to hear the sound of the magnetic force of the Northern Lights thanks to a recording loaned to us by a parent. We watched penguins diving and swimming and glaciers and icebergs forming. We had great fun during Aistear putting everything we learned into practise.
