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:
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 😉
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 🙂
Every month the whole school reviews a school rule:
The first school rule is
‘Respect: Kind hands. Kind feet. Kind words’.
We made posters for a school wide competition:
Posters on the theme of ‘Kind Words Make The World Go Round’:

This week was Anti Bullying Week, Term One
We have renamed it, more positively:
‘Be A Good Friend Week’.
Teacher will give out Good Buddy Awards certificates
from Seomra Ranga
Can you spot your masterpiece? on Photopeach. Adult supervision of children on the internet is always necessary.
Teacher found this useful website when she was preparing this theme:
We are doing a whole school poster competition.
We have to design a poster about good behaviour in school.
The theme is:
and Kind Words.
As part of Anti Bullying Week
a.k.a ‘Be Kind and Be a Good Friend Week’,
we were talking in school about kind words.
These are the ones we thought of.
John Paul did very well.
He thought of five phrases
and John Paul’s first language is Spanish.
Well done John Paul!
We used ‘Answer Garden’ to record the words we thought of.

Teacher played us ‘March Past of the Kitchen Utensils’
by the English composer Vaughan Williams (1872-1958).
You can see the work of the children who completed their pictures here on
PHOTOPEACH AS ALWAYS 🙂 Vaughan William’s piece is used as the sound
track on this slideshow.
Then we played along to the music using some kitchen utensils as percussion.
