First they had to use purple and blue paint to create the winter sky.
Next they had to draw and cut trees.
Finally they had to stick their trees on the snow to create a silhouette effect

We have been learning about autumn in school. We have been noticing all the different changes that happen in the season of autumn such as the leaves changing colour and falling, the animals gathering nuts, the weather getting colder, and the birds migrating.
We did a great job making these beautiful autumn trees!
First the children had to draw a tree using a pencil, then they coloured it in brown.
After that they dipped a cotton bud in paint and dabbed it all around their trees to make the leaves.
The boys and girls were given a little piece of this rainbow to colour each. As well as each child colouring a piece, each table also had to work on one piece to colour together. The pieces looked pretty on their own but when we stuck them all together we were absolutely amazed by how beautiful our class rainbow looked! It really shows how we all fit together so colourfully in 1st class :)
This year we are going outside at each yard break which means we get to embrace the rainy Irish weather! We get very excited now when it rains!!
We all have wet gear and are getting great practice keeping our extra things tidy and organised. We have even spent some time learning to fold our things.
What great life skills!
The pods in Emer's 1st class are named after different flowers - Daisies, Bluebells, Pansies, Roses, and Marigolds. In keeping with our flower theme we thought it would be nice to make little flowers each. After we made the flowers, each pod worked closely together decorating the blue sky in the background with chalk pastels.
We hope you like our collaborative flowery art!
Thank you all so much for your continued hard work at home. This week, a lot of people have started submitting their work through Seesaw, which seems to be much handier than the website. I hope you are enjoying that format. Here are some pictures that were sent in for sharing here on the website.
It looks like everyone is having great fun with the Scavenger Hunts! Maybe you could design your own Scavenger Hunt too!
