Christmas Art 


christmas treeAt this time of year, there is Christmas art aplenty in St Colman's. Everywhere you look, there are Christmas trees, holly, snowmen, penguins, Rudolph, and the obligatory Santa. Of course we couldn't forget the Nativity scene. holly and berriesThe boys and girls in Mrs Lyons' Fourth Class didn't forget, but, instead of drawing a picture, they worked together in groups to create their own individual 3D cribs. The results were fantasic as you can see from the photos below and everyone was proud of their contribution.

Ukulele Lessons Begin...

The children were so excited as they headed to the school hall and were thrilled to discover ukuleles in a wide variety of colours waiting for them. Each child had a ukulele of their own for the duration of the lesson where they learned three new chords which will form the basis for their first song.

Justin has a special plectrum-shaped hole punch that allows him to make these sustainable plectrums. He demonstrated how it works to the children. 

It was wonderful to see the boys and girls strumming away together and they are really looking forward to their next lesson!

Dance lessons begin...

 

Today, our third classes began their six week block of dance lessons with Ms. Shauna Coffey. The children from Ms Mulcair's Class were first up (pictured below). They started the lesson with a thorough warm up before exploring a series of dance techniques. They also started to learn a dance to the catchy tune 'Green Green Grass' by George Ezra and are looking forward to building on this over the coming weeks. Judging by the huge smiles on the childrens' faces after the lesson, it's safe to say they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and can't wait until next week!
