Our 6th Class girls learned all about the pop art movement. Pop art is a style of art that emerged in the United Kingdom and the United States during the mid- to late-1950s. The movement presented a challenge to traditions of fine art by including imagery from popular and mass culture, such as advertising, comic books and mundane cultural objects. They created their own wonderful, bright, unique pieces of pop art which are displayed upstairs for all to admire.
The girls in 6th class had a heated debate this term. Our topics up for discussion were ‘Homework should be banned’ & ‘Every household should have a pet’. We had 4 teams & 2 judges participating. The girls are learning to speak in public and in front of their peers & developing cognitive and language abilities, as well as skills in research and debating. Our MVS (Most Valuable Speaker) awards voted by the children themselves went to Ava Mangan, Leanne Higgins & Mia Lynch. Everybody put in a great effort & spoke eloquently.
Above is a video link to the girls performance of ‘Amhrán na gCupán’ which they spent alot of time perfecting during the term & performed at a Tionól as part of our aim to gain the school a ‘Gaelbhratach’ flag this year. They did an outstanding job.
6th Class Graduation
Our wonderful 6th class girls celebrated their eight years of primary school on Friday 21st with their Graduation Ceremony. It was a fantastic celebration of their eight years in Sunday’s Well G.N.S. The theme was ‘friendship’ and they sang ‘Count On Me’, ‘You’ve Got a Friend in Me’ and ‘Time of Your Life’ beautifully accompanied by Mrs O Connor on the keyboard. They also performed Amhrán na gCupán and recited ‘Daffodils’ by William Wordsworth. The graduation finished with a slideshow reflecting on their progress from Junior Infants to 6th class. A magnificent send off for a fantastic class.
