Rathfarnham Educate Together NS. – Session 1 – Artist: Tunde Toth

Our first session with 5th class and their teacher Ms Patricia McManus at Rathfarnham Educate Together school was an attempt to explore our broad theme: WATER

We explored the theme and EXPLOREd the ways of our explorations…:) – and discovered how broad and diverse this theme really is  so the children drew complicated and colourful MIND MAPS – plenty of ideas, connections and inspirations! We also started to work on our project diaries and hoping to set up our project corner in the class room next time.

The class is divided for 5 working groups, focusing on 5 different (but of coarse interconnected) aspects of water:

GROUP 1: WATER for life + Water on Earth`s Surface

GROUP 2: Weather Conditions (related to WATER)

GROUP 3: WATER based activities

GROUP 4: Boats and ships and related matter (Navigation?)

GROUP 5: WATER/UNDERWATER Life

This very first session was all about talking, chatting, discussing, getting to know each other…It was of coarse challenging, but filled with excellent responses, great level of enthusiasm and interest and some fun drawings!
