3rd Class Tour to Lullymore

The 3rd classes had a great day out in Lullymore yesterday. We saw lots of animals and we played in the outdoor playground. We saw a replica of a famine cottage, a hedge school and we learned lots of interesting facts about life in Ireland in the past. We loved visiting the Fairy Bower and making a wish at the fairy Tree. We had a road train ride around the Bog of Allen. It was a fantastic day out !

 

Hugh Lane Gallery

The 3rd classes recently visited the Hugh Lane Gallery. We had a guided tour of the galley and we viewed paintings by a number of different artists. We loved Sean Scully’s work and the beautiful stained glass work of Harry Clarke.

 

We also saw the Frances Bacon studio…what a messy room !

After the gallery we went to the Garden Of Remembrance and enjoyed our lunch in the beautiful sunshine. We saw the statue of the Children of Lir

We have been inspired by our gallery visit to paint in the style of Sean Scully. We painted on paper and on canvas

Fabric and Fibre

3rd class made some interesting abstract pictures using all different kinds of fabric and fibre
