September was a busy month in our first ever 6th class! We have spent the month getting to know each other. As part of this, we drew portraits of ourselves and completed ‘my-selfies’. We also learned about Pablo Picasso and drew self-portraits in his cubist style. Our main artist of the month was Andy Warhol, who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. We focused on drawing identical images, with contrasting colours in the background in order to make it ‘pop’.
We have also been very active this month. Every Wednesday morning we have been doing cycle safety training with Richie, every Thursday afternoon we have been participating in tag rugby. We have also started our ‘Daily Mile’ most mornings. This is a quick 15 minute jog or run, which is really waking us up and giving us energy first thing.
We also had lots of fun making and designing posters and banners to support Síofra, who made it to the Intermediate All-Ireland Ladies Football Final.
