Poetry Inspires Music

Rhythm is what makes music as well as poetry. In fact Junior Cycle music students’ study a type of song called ‘Art Songs’ which are   poems set to music.

In honour of ‘Poetry Week’ last week in CDL. The 1st year music students got a chance to compose some music inspired by a poem of their choice or a poem that they have composed themselves.

Check out some of their compositions:

Chloe’s Composition

Beibhinn’s Composition

James’ Composition

Nell’s Composition

We hope you enjoyed our compositions and check back soon for what we get up to next in the Music Room.

 

 

 

 

 

Learning to Code and Problem Solve

This year Coding was introduced as an Other Learning Experience (OLE) in CDL for 1st and 2nd Year students. It’s important for our students to learn more than just a basic understanding of coding, we want them to work on analyzing problems, problem solving strategies and to experiment with their individual creativity.

To help us get started on this journey we are using some of the resources available on www.code.org. If you would like to learn more about what you son/daughter is learning in coding, please check out the website above.
