Ms Mc Nicholas’s Class performed and signed, using I.S.L. (Irish Sign Language) “We wish you a Merry Christmas”

We took part in a Google Hangout today with lots of schools from around the world. There were schools from Germany, St Martinique (The Caribbean) Russia, Argentina and Pennsylvania, USA.
We learned about Christmas Traditions in different countries and we told them about The Wren tradition and the tradition of leaving a candle in the window at Christmas time.
Lorcan did the presentation about The Wren and Jessica did the presentation about the candle in the window.
We have been working really hard from day one in fourth class!
We have learned the poem ‘Autumn Fires’
In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!
Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!
By: John Louis Stevenson
we also learned a song called Autumn Autumn
Here are its lyrics:
Animals in Hibernation
Red, yellow, orange, brown
Leaves fall down, down
This is the video we made mixing both of them together. One half the class recites the poem while the others hum the tune. We all did the song in canon! Click on the Autumn link to hear the song. You will probably have to wear earphones as the sound is quite low.
We also made some paper trees and used paint to create nice bark-like textures!
