Everyone in Scoil Mhuire is very proud of Christopher Wall (8) in first class. Chris recently travelled to the New National Arena in Blanchardstown, Dublin to compete in the national qualifiers in Trampoline Discipline. Over 180 gymnasts from all over the country took part. Chris won a gold medal in the NDP1 8 - 10 group with a fantastic score of 55,300. Chris also scored the top score in the NDP1 section which included 71 gymnasts regardless of age. Well done Chris !
We were extremely lucky this week in 1st class to start our art lessons with Orla Bates. Orla is going to be visiting all four first classes for the next four weeks.
This week Orla read us the story ‘The Tiny Seed’ by Eric Carle. Then we talked about all of the parts of the flower like the seed, the roots, the stem, the leaves and the flower. After learning these words we drew each part of the plant.
We were delighted to use Orla’s water colour pencils to colour in our flowers and we even used sharpies to draw the outline of our plant. Finally, we used water to turn our water colour pencils into paint.
Check out the great work that Ms. Guerrine’s class did on the video!
Keep an eye on the blog to see what we do next week.
