Observational Drawings
We were learning about drawing and how important it is to look at what you are drawing.  We turned the pictures upside down before we drew them so that we would concentrate on the lines.  We drew straight lines, wiggly lines, chubby lines, wavy lines, curvy lines and lots more.  It made it much easier to copy the picture by looking at the lines rather than the whole picture.

We designed and drew machines. We collected things we would normally put in our recycling bin such as cardboard boxes and plastic bottles. Then we made our machines.

Some of us worked with a partner and some of us worked by ourselves. Look at what we made: a robot, a jet pack, a dog, a candy machine, a rocket, airplanes, cars and much more!

The Sea horse

This week the people of Tramore are commemorating the 200th  anniversary of the Sea horse tragedy. The transport ship was wrecked during a storm. 363 men, women and children died.

Pupils in our school worked on projects, sketches, models, games, Minecraft videos, poems, Scratch projects and great diaries, collages, letters and stories. Some did class and group projects.  Others did independent work.

Lots of our projects are being displayed in the Coast Guard Station, Tramore. Our class did a replica of the Sea horse.  We made it from recyclables from Recreate. We then painted it with copper and brown coloured paint.

Others made the Seahorse with Lego, paper, clay, wood that floats and lots more. In our school we made a large range of amazing and artistic things that we took our time with. A teacher in Glór Na Mara called Mr. O’Cathsaigh composed a song about the Seahorse and we all sang it while he played his guitar. The song tells the story very well, so we used the lyrics of the song to get information for our projects and poems.

Why don’t you treat yourself to a visit the Coastguard Cultural Centre and see our work displayed! It will be there until February 10th.  Let us know what you think of our work!

An interview with Kevin power

Kevin interviewed us for a documentary about the Sea horse. We designed a Scratch programme. It was great. He asked us lots of questions. One question was “Did you learn anything that you didn’t know before you started this project?”. We did actually. We both didn’t know that people tried to swim out to help the people on the ship.

It wasn’t just us he interviewed. There were three other fantastic projects too. Kevin is filming a documentary on the Sea horse and we really want to see it. We both hope it’s a big hit. We made our project on Scratch. We were both really nervous about being interviewed. We explained all the steps we took to make our project and how the coding worked. We also created a time lapse recording of our project.

It was a great experience and we learned a lot about our local history and scratch programming in the process.
