Ms. Murtagh’s class love to problem solve! Recently, we carried out a task where we had to make a diagram showing the steps involved in measuring the height of a giraffe. Check out the video to see some of our ideas. If you have another idea in mind you could put it in a comment for us to read!
Ms. Murtagh’s class were very lucky to visit the National Gallery of Ireland this month.
We had been studying the work of Spanish artist Pablo Picasso and got to see one of his paintings on display in the gallery. It was “Still Life With A Mandolin”. We thought it was brilliant! Some other paintings we saw on the day were “Grief” by Irish artist Jack B.Yeats , “The Village School” by Dutch artist Jan Steen, “The Taking of Christ” by Italian artist Michelangelo Caravaggio, “The Opening of the Sixth Seal” by Irish artist Francis Danby and “The Annunciation” by French artist Jacques Yverni.
We all had a great day and a big thank you to Kate and Kim for coming with us!
