Welcome to the Second Class page!
October and November
We did lots of great activities over mindfulness week including a great yoga workshop, mindfulness colouring and we made sure to check in with how our bodies were feeling throughout mindfulness week. Here is a picture of us at the yoga workshop.
Second class learned all about data and we went outside to collect data of the traffic that passes our school. We had some very interesting results that we counted using a tally.
Second class have also learned about 2D shapes. They used their knowledge of 2D shapes to make amazing pictures of owls using ONLY 2D shapes!
Second class made a huge effort with their halloween costumes. There were. zombie school girls, wild animals, 2 devils and a donkey! We were all impressed by the amazing costumes.
After Mid-Term we were very excited to welcome Aibhlin into our class. We wanted to get to know her, and give her a chance to get to know us so each child made a fact file about themselves.
Player of the year
This week we got some very exciting news, a boy in our class was named player of the year for the u8s for Cabinteely FC. Well done you!
This month we were learning about mini-beasts in the school grounds. We went on a bug hunt and found lots of bugs and insects.
We have been learning about different artists this month. We learned all about Picasso and painted some self-portraits in his style.
This year each child will have a pen pal that they will write to about once a month. Their pen pals are boys and girls from 2nd class in Kiltiernan COI national school. This is a really good chance for the children to write with a purpose.
