Junk-Art Creatures in Room 1
Last week we had lots of fun marking St Patrick’s Day in school. In the middle of all the celebrations we made some unusual ‘cairde’…by creating some funky junk art sculptures! It was great working with each other to make some really unusual creations using recycled materials. Here we are designing them together:
And here are our finished pieces – meet ‘Torpedo Súile Dearg’, ‘Tower of Terror’, Rocket Monster’, ‘Superman Strong’ and ‘Barbie’.
We have also been learning that poems are little stories that rhyme. So, to celebrate World Poetry Day today, we thought of some fantastic rhyming stories about our junk-art friends – we imagined where they live, what they like to do and their favourite foods! Then we typed them up ourselves on the computer and included some great illustrations too!
