Drumming Workshops with Brian

2nd Class were the lucky kids to have a wonderful drumming workshop with Brian. Brian has borrowed a set of drums from Blackrock Education Centre. We don’t just have talented children, members of our staff have many talents too, and Brian is an accomplished drummer. All children from 2nd to 6th class will benefit from his talent and expertise as he holds drumming workshops with each class.

6th & 2nd Maths Trail

6th & 2nd Maths Trail

As part of Maths week, 6th class students worked collaboratively to create a Maths Trail for 2nd class. Then they took groups of 2nd class children around the school environment to explore all the elements of the 2nd class Maths curriculum. Armed with lots of resources including tablets, the 6th class children guided their Maths buddies through a range of problem solving skills throughout the school. Second class children showed great inquiry skills and loved the challenges set for them by the 6th class boys and girls. The 6th class boys and girls have to be commended for their leadership and for helping the younger children develop their Maths skills. The weather was great and we had a great time focusing on STEM.

2nd Class Art inspired by Artist Christopher Niewman

2nd Class Art inspired by Artist Christopher Niewman

Harry brought us in a great book by the artist Christopher Niewman. He uses everyday objects to create his art. We decided to make drawings inspired by his work. When we finished working with our own objects, we swapped and made other drawings using new objects. We photographed and printed our work when we were finished.
