eTwinning - Christmas Cards Exchange
The newest eTwinning project in 3rd class is now gaining momentum as pupils are planning their cards that they will send to the partner schools. We are partnered with ten other schools for this project and pupils will work in groups of three of four to make a card and write a little about our school to include with each card. They are also preparing a Christmas Banner that will be sent via the eTwinning Platform. Part of the project also involves telling the partner schools about CHristmas traditions in Ireland and we in turn will learn of the Christmas Traditions in other European countries...Busy times!
Postcards From Afar
Postcards have been arriving from around Europe. It is very exciting to receive each new card and to learn a little about each class in our eTwinning project.
5th/6th One Point Perspective Art
Taking inspiration from the works of Leonardo da Vinci and his contribution to added dimension and perspective, the children created their own One Point Perspective Drawing, using a horizon line and a vanishing point.
We discussed form and shape 2D and 3D. We developed an awareness of line and form , rhythm, pattern and space. We focused on vertices and edges and parallel and perpendicular lines in our drawings.
