Drawing colourful and monochrome landscapes in Ms Forde’s 3rd Class

We created colourful and monochrome landscapes in Art last week. First we drew colourful landscapes of a sunset. Everyone was very creative in making their own artwork unique. There were bridges, trees, animals, rivers…even an ‘emoji’ sun! We also used different types of lines in our drawings. Then, we drew the same landscape but only used our pencil to colour it in. We used shading to add dimension. This created a monochrome landscape. Well done...

Ms. Lynch’s 3rd Class on T.V.

For the month of March, Third Class were working on the topic ‘An Teilifís/The Television’ in Irish. As part of this, Ms. Lynch’s class decided to work on a T.V. project and record some mini television programmes. The children in our class voted on what T.V. shows to include in our project and then worked on writing Irish scripts for the different programmes. After we wrote the scripts, we practised reading them to each other.  Next, we used one of our school iPads to record our classmates reading their scripts in front of our whiteboard. We also made voice recordings for an episode of ‘Peppa Pig’.  We really enjoyed writing and recording our class project, and are very proud of our finished project. You can watch our video...
