Art Makes Us Happy

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

As part of ‘Mental Health Week’ primary one joined an online art lesson. The theme of the activity was ‘Art Makes Us Happy.’  They were guided through the process of creating their own version of Claude Monet’s ‘Path in the Wheat at Pourville.’  They followed the lesson brilliantly and the end results were outstanding for such a young age group. It certainly was a wonderful way to make everyone happy.  Fantastic work primary 1. πŸŽ¨πŸ–ŒοΈ

 

St. Brigid πŸ’š

 

Primary 1’s coloured a picture of St. Brigid and then painted her cloak onto the class window.  They made crosses using a St. Brigid’s cross template and strips of green paper.  They also helped to make St. Brigid crosses using rushes.  Fr Clyne blessed them at mass and each pupil got a cross to take home.

Apple Day

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Primary 1 had a fantastic day at the Palace Stables Armagh.  They learned all about the journey of the apple from the tree to our homes and they met some wonderful characters from the past who taught them about making apple potato bread and apple juice.  They also enjoyed taking part in an apple craft activity and were delighted with their finished creations which they got to take back to school. 🍏🍎
