Dress Up Day :D

On Friday the 26th of October we had our annual Halloween dress up day. This year the themes were Witches for First Years, Pirates for Second Years, Super Heroes for Third Years, Zombies for Transition Years, Scary Clowns for Fifth Years and Harry Potter for Sixth Years. 
This year my friend Eve, did my make up to make me look like a scary zombie. My class had our pictures taken for our Halloween dress up day. Everyone had to vote for two people from my class to represent Class Cinealtas in our Halloween parade. Emma and Rachel were chosen as we thought that they had the best costumes. At lunch time the parade was held in the hall where all the class representatives from each year group had to walk in front of the judges and they decided what class won from each year group. Unfortunately this year my class did not win, but we all had a great day participating in our annual Halloween dress-up day and I am really looking forward to next years Halloween :)

Junk Kouture :)

This year everyone in Transition Year has to make an outfit from recyclable objects. I am in a group with Kate and Aisling, and we are doing a Tea Party theme, I am modelling our creation. The top of our dress is a bodess made with chicken wire and covered with paper machete. We placed used tea bags over the paper machete. The tea bags are brown in colour.
For the bottom part of our outfit we did a skirt in the shape of a tea pot. We shaped the chicken wire into a tea pot and paper macheted the skirt. We then covered the skirt in painted used tea bags. I painted my tea bags pink, Kate painted her tea bags purple, and Aisling painted her tea bags blue. We are putting these tea bags onto the skirt.
We are doing a handle of the tea pot, which my arm will go into. This is covered in pink tea bags. We also have a hat, which acts as the lid of a tea pot. This is covered in blue tea bags. For our shoes we are covering them in purple tea bags.
I am really enjoying making an outfit that I will be able to wear and say that I had a hand in making it.

Fun Walk and Work Experience :D

This week we were busy preparing for our Fun Walk performance. My class group were good and bad bees, but during our piece we all became friends. We put a lot of effort into our Transition Year Fun Walk Performance.
This week I also had my second week of Work Experience in a local primary school. I was in with Second Class for the day which I really enjoyed :). I helped the children with their very sticky and messy art lesson. I really enjoyed my time with Second Class and I am really looking forward to my third week of Work Experience :D.
