All Diary Entries

This is one of the pupils’ favourite parts — creating the movable parts and backgrounds…

That’s Visual Arts covered for the next fortnight at least – remember, time and space. I took lots of photographs today. They were having so much fun and it’s great to capture that spirit for afterwards. The word that comes to mind to describe the movable parts is ‘deilbhíní’- for those of you old enough to remember Buntús! There were numerous hedgehogs and squirrels drawn, painted and cut out. I foresee problems here with varying sizes and shades of colours used but I leave it for the time being until the pupils themselves discover it…a valuable opportunity to develop analysis, evaluative and problem-solving skills.
