Our art class was based on the Weather. Before we started our art lesson we watched some short videos about the weather. We saw videos of hurricanes, thunder and lightning, tornadoes and sunny weather. Theses videos were used as an inspiration for a drawings. The girls all had great fun drawing with chalk pastels and smudging the pastels on the paper. The girls designed some lovely pictures of the weather. Have a look at the pictures below.
Weather In Senior Infants we have been learning all about the weather. As part of our morning play activities we have been role playing telling the weather forecast. We have been using the playdoh to make different weather pictures. We have also been doing sorting activities where we have been sorting the clothes we wear on a sunny day and those that we wear on a cold day. Check out the pictures below for some more of our weather activities.
