3rd and 4th have finished swimming

Today we finished our swimming lessons in the Clondalkin Leisure Centre. We had great fun over the last swim weeks learning to swim. We worked hard on floating, putting our heads under the water, the backstroke and even some DIVING! Thank you to our super teacher's at the pool for our great lessons.

3rd and 4th Class Celebrating Shrove Tuesday

We celebrated Shrove tuesday by eating some yummy pancakes. We researched and found out that shrove means to be forgiven and also learned about a tradition in the UK called pancake races. This custom grew up because of a legend dating from 1445. On Shrove Tuesday one woman was still making pancakes as the church bells rang. Rather than be late she took her frying pan and pancake with her. Click on the image to see more photos of our class eating their pancakes.

Cool and Colourful Kandinksy

We looked at paintings by the russian artist Wassily Kandinksy. He uses lots of contrasting and complementary colours in his work. We particulary liked this piece. It is callend squares with concentric circles. He painted it in 1913. We painted our own Kandinsky inspired paintings. Click on the image to see our art work in progress.
