We got organised in the classroom and lined up for a trip to the Irish Museum of Modern Art. Thank you Ms Brown for helping us get ready.
It was quite a long journey but we were on the best bus ever. There were two tv's/monitors and we watched Ice Age 4. Mrs M never saw it before and she loved it.
We saw some paintings in the gallery; Mary Swansea is so interesting - we could see animals in the shapes of her trees - monkeys, squid, bats...
We made art with lots of shapes just like the Cubist painters.
On the way home, we were exhausted. There was a Disney movie in the bus; some of us watched it and some of us had a bit of a rest...
It was one of the best mornings in school in our whole lives!
Thank you Joan, Hilary and Katie for teaching us about Cubism, and thank you Emma for coming with us to the Gallery.
This week was all about love; games, Irish, poems, art, music, even science - we learned all about our hearts and how they work!
We were talking about China again. We heard a love story about a Chinese girl and a boy who turned into swallows. It's the story some of us in Junior Infants have seen on plates and cups in our houses. Look at these amazing drawings of the Willow Pattern story we made...
We made Valentine's cards for our parents and little Valentine's people for ourselves. We love our parents so much. Some of us ran out of space on our cards because we wanted to say how much we love our Mums and Dads, our brothers and sisters, our grannies and grandads, our cousins, our minders, our pets... One of our poems was about a crocodile loving its baby and singing it a goodnight lullaby!
We learned the best song called 'Love is something if you give it away'.
