During the month of October Ms. Downey’s Class learned about Bridget Reilly and Op Art. The boys and girls tried to make their own op art and discovered it is quite tricky!

We were very busy during Maths Week. Ms. Whelan organised a Guess the Teacher Board each day and we completed a Maths Trail around the School and Church Grounds. Ms. Whelan also organised fun Maths Activities in the Hall which we really enjoyed..

Can you figure out who this is?

We have been learning about Global Citizenship and Climate Change. Our slogan Action + Imagination = A Global Nation was picked as one of our Green School slogans for this year. Some of the class made fantastic Climate Change Leaflets. Ms. Egan and Ms. Calvey, who are in charge of our Green School Committee, were very impressed and we are hoping that one of our leaflets may be chosen as the one to be sent home to all families.

This month some very excited boys and girls in Ms. Downey’s Class got their Pen Licences. Well done to all and remember Ms. Downey is still on the lookout for more neat handwriting and correct letter formation.

For Halloween our HSCL Teacher Ellie and Amber’s Mum Leanne showed us how to do some Scary Scars.We used vaseline, wax, powder, paint and fake blood and we thought they looked very realistic. Thanks to Ellie and Leanne for all their help.

Having studied Picasso, cubism and abstract art in September we revisited him for Halloween and made Freaky Picasso Frankenstein Collages. Look at how well they turned out!

And finally we had our Recycled Halloween Costume Day. Amber, John-Patrick and Courtney were chosen as the winners from A5.

6th Class had a great time playing Halloween games. They definitely found it difficult trying to get a bite of the apple with their hands behind their backs. They discovered that your shoulders are your friend during this game. Happy Halloween everyone!
