Crosserlough National School, Day 1 : Introduction to making copper spirals

Every year I get involved with teaching a DCCOI scheme called "CRAFTed", which aims to bring craft into the classroom. This year I'm working in St Mary's school Crosserlough with 4th and 5th classes, on a project based on "The Celts".

I got a lovely surprise after my first class when I saw a wee video that the kids and their teacher made about our introductory copper beating class. Since then, three more videos have been made with the help of the children and they are soooo cool!
A lovely idea that really makes the project come alive! 
Check it out and see what you think!
