‘Irish Proverbs Illustrated’ on PhotoPeach
In this school we have an annual competition
to remember a much loved teacher
who encouraged children to be the best they can be.
This year we held a competition asking the children
to illustrate an Irish proverb.
As every year, it is lovely to see the development
of the children’s abilities
from Junior Infants to Sixth.
In each class three winners were selected.
So we have over fifty prizewinners here.
Congratulations and well done everyone.
We are continuing with the Student Blogging Challenge.
This is Challenge 5.
We were asked to write a story
based on an image of a forest
where there was a signpost saying:
A Secret Hides In This Forest.
You can read about the challenge here:
We made a Photopeach Slideshow.
Nicole wrote the story.
Isabella drew the cat.
Clara drew the fairy.
The other children in 2nd Class Room 6
had already created the backgrounds.
HERE it is….
We hope you enjoy it!
The Secret That Lies In The Forest
Following the fun we had during the first week of October
when we took part in a Signs of Autumn Twitter Project
this week we are taking part in a collaborative project about
the Signs of Spring on Twitter.
We are tweeting photos and comments
about the signs of Spring that we see
using the hashtag #antearrach
Teacher looks forward to this opportunity
to continue using Twitter with 2nd Class, Room 6.

Update 8th March 2013
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 😉
