The children in Miss Daly’s room really enjoyed some potato block printing art this week.
We really enjoyed International Dot Day here at Togher N.S. As part of our celebrations we have made a short film incorporating an animation made using Scratch programming. Please check it out below.
Sunday the 15th of September is International Dot Day. The inspiration behind International Dot Day is the children’s book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds which encourages students to celebrate creativity, courage, and collaboration. In the build up to Dot Day the children in Togher N.S. engage in many artistic activities – dedicated to getting the children to fearlessly make their mark on the world!
The children really enjoyed learning the age old skill of hand-weaving with Katrin today. The Industrial Revolution started with the weaving loom. Weaving cloth by hand is very time consuming and the weaving mills changed society completely. Weaving by hand gives the children a clear insight into how the process works and is also amazingly satisfying and creative.
Just a note to let you know about the event planned in Dunmanway Library for Cruinniú na nÓg this year. For those of you unfamiliar with the day, it is a national day of creativity and play for children brought to you under the Creative Ireland programme. This year they are offering families a two day workshop called “Where We Live” with artist Julie O’Hea.
Workshops are free of charge & booking is essential.
