History: Schools in the past
In November, we interviewed our parents and grandparents and asked them lots of questions about their time in primary school. We asked them about the resources, games, punishments and subjects that they had in school and how this was different to what we have now in Scoil Mhuire. We presented our findings within our pods and created a project together. Here we are creating our group project and presenting it to the rest of the class.
Art: Self Portraits
During October we focused on drawing self portraits. We cut a picture of ourselves in half, and drew the other half focusing on our main features. Here are some of the final products.
