Our class made stained glass windows with Ms. Kelly.
The equipment we needed was an A4 acetate sheet,
permanent markers: black and other colours,
and A4 sheet of paper on which to make a design.
Here is a slideshow of our work:
If covering the topic of colour in class,
this website has great potential
for encouraging learning and discussion.
It is called Colours in Motion
and was created by Maria Claudia Cortes
It is interactive and animated
and deals with the symbolism of colour.
There are also opportunities
to experiment with digital art.
Soon it will be Chinese New Year
We listened to the story of the
Chinese Willow Pattern.
Then we acted out the story.
To finish we made ‘statues’
of that dramatic point in the story
where Li Chi’s Father tells Chang he must leave
and Li Chi begs her father to let her marry Chang.
We would love to hear what you think of our art.

Please don’t leave your child to explore online unattended
The internet is a portal to the world outside.
Children should be accompanied on this journey 😉
These are some of our pictures of trees.
Before we did our project we often drew trees
that looked like lollipops 😉
We learnt about colour, shape and angle,
looking at masterpieces by a variety of artists.
These included Vincent Van Gogh
and Georgia O’Keeffe .
These are some of the trees we drew today
at the end of our project on the theme of trees.

– things I had no words for’.
Thanks again to Junior Art Gallery

We would love you to comment!
We were talking in class about ‘moments in the sun’,
how every now and then some one has a day
where their talents are celebrated.
The children who took part in the Kilcoole Feis
had this ‘moment in the sun’.
Mark and Fiona had their most recent moment
when they got prizes in the art competition
organised by Junior Art Gallery.
More success will occur when the class enter
the Write A Book competition.
Winners and runners up will be picked from each class.
We will also enter the Junior Spiders Awards
and the Texaco Art competition
and who knows what might happen.
We talked about how we can’t expect
to climb to the top of the mountain
and be successful every day.
Being successful takes hard work.
Being successful also takes good luck.
If the weather was sunny every day
we would take it for granted.
The children in 2nd Class, Room 6
agreed that they all love snow days
but if it snowed everyday
they would eventually find this tedious.
Winning the Lotto would be
a dream come true
for many people,
but if it happened every day
we might say:
‘Oh No, not another
Lotto win’ 😉
We can take it in turns to be successful
and have our ‘moments in the sun’.
We can congratulate friends
who are successful
and enjoy their success
Today Nicole was successful.
Her lovely picture received praise
from Junior Art Gallery:
Well done Nicole 🙂
Children from 2nd Class Room 6 entered this competition:
