In Rang 3 we recently explored some of the artists from the Pop Art movement, such as Rob Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol.
We then created our own Pop Art based on the work of Julien Opie, using ourselves as the subject of the paintings.
We were delighted with the results.
Maith sibh Rang 3 tá na pictiúir go hálainn ar fad.
Pop Art is currently on display in the Rang 3 Gallery of Modern Art (the corridor outside Rang 3) for a limited time only.
Is scread é i Rang 3!
Bhí Rang 3 ag foghlaim faoi Edvard Munch agus a phictiúr ‘An Scread’
Rinne siad a gcuid pictiúir féin freisin.
It’s a scream in Rang 3!
Rang 3 were learning about Edvard Munch and his painting ‘The Scream’.
They made their own paintings also.

The Ingredients: Arborio Rice, pre-cooked bacon, (Rush) cabbage from down the road! broth/stock, onion and butter.
Equipment: Knife, saucepan, cooker, spoon, fork, adult supervision is important.
Step1: Wash your hands!
Step 2: Put the saucepan on the cooker.
Step 3:Add 1 tablespoon of butter.
Step 4: Turn on the cooker while you chop your onion and add it to the melting butter.
Step 5: After 5 minutes when the onion is soft add your arboria rice and stir.
Step 6: 3 minutes later pour the stock/broth into the saucepan gradually.
Step 7: Chop up your cabbage and add to the saucepan.
Step 8: Dice the precooked bacon and sprinkle it into the saucepan,
Step 9: Serve on to the plate and grate some ‘Hegarty’ cheese on the top if wanted.

The Verdict: ‘Amazing’. ‘Best Risotto ever’, ‘Cool’, ‘It tasted great’ ‘ An-mhaith’, ‘go h-iontach’, ‘Ar fheabhas’.
Great excitement today in Rang 3 as part of their winning entry in the Agri Aware Pasture to Plate Competition they were visited by the Pasture to Plate team.
