Rang a Trí & Rang a Ceathair – Colour Inspired by Autumn Leaves.
We have already gone on a nature walk around the school site to investigate rich and poor areas for plant and animal habitats. So when it came to our art lesson on paint & colour, what else would we look at but the beautiful autumn leaves around our school?
The rich, vivid colours on the leaves – greens, browns, golds, reds and oranges are a minor work of art themselves and the children studied them carefully before mixing up their own colours to represent them.
Rang a Trí & Rang a Ceathair -Ag foghlaim faoi “Sa Bhaile”
Táimid ag foghlaim faoi láthair faoi “Sa Bhaile” – cinéal tithe, na seomraí, troscán agus ag iarraidh cur síos a dhéanamh faoi. Ag deireadh an leath-téarma beidh na páistí ag tabhairt teaspáinteas beag bunaithe ar an ábhar seo d’arb ainm “Ceannaigh an teach seo!”
Seo na buachaillí & cailíní ag cleachtadh le chéile san ionad pobail.
Rang a Trí & Rang a Ceathair – study our school through time.
The girls and boys from rang a trí & a ceathair recently studied how schooling in Corballa has changed. In 1901 there were 5 primary schools in the parish of Castleconnor. These closed or amalgamated over the years.
We visited the old school across the fields to see what had changed and what had remained the same. The children were interested in writing on slates, outside toilets and the threat of corporal punishment.
Our local history book told us of how, after almost 90 years, people felt a new school was needed in Corballa. It took a huge amount of fundraising to build our present school in 1979 – 1980.
This is an historic year as we are currently building a new classroom to our school, one which we hope will be used by children in Castleconnor for many years to come.
