Monet’s water-lilies!

We looked at some paintings by Claude Monet. We learned all about Impressionism. We really liked the painting of The Japanese Bridge (The Water-Lily Pond)  in his garden.

We then decided to paint our own pictures using lots of bright colours for our water lilies…..take a look!

 

The Year of the Snake

The Chinese new year celebrations began on Sunday February 10th.It is the year of the snake. We learned all about how Chinese people celebrate this special time.

We had great fun colouring in our snakes and painting yellow and red borders around them.

St. Brigid’s Day

On February 1st we celebrated the feast day of St. Brigid. We learned all about how she was a very kind and special  person.

We saw some lovely St. Brigid’s crosses and heard the story about how her cloak grew and grew. Later on we coloured in lovely pictures of her and using coloured sugar-paper made a beautiful collage of her cloak.

Let us show you our work….

The Liffey Swim

Ms. Crean’s class looked at a painting by a famous Irish artist called Jack B yeats. The painting was called the Liffey Swim. He painted lots of Dubliners  long ago watching the annual swim in the river Liffey.

 

Later we had great fun painting our own pictures using lots of bright coloured paints.

Take a look at our Liffey swim pictures….

When I grow up….

In Ms. Crean’s class we discussed what we might like to be when we grow up. We came up with lots of different career choices and drew some lovely pictures of ourselves. Take a look at some of our colourful work.
