May Update


Second class completed a mini-project based on the BFG. We read and watched the BFG and compared the similarities and differences between the book and the film. Here is our display showing dream land and the BFG’s cave where he collects dreams.

Treat Day

Second class filled their marble jar again and we had a great day using the parachute and buying treats from/working in our tuck shop.

Talent show

Before Easter we were all very impressed by the huge amount of talent in 2nd class. Every child played a part in making our talent show a great success. From singing and dancing to comedy our talent show had it all!

Under the sea project

The children completed projects about different sea creatures. They used the computers and tablets to do research on their chosen sea creature and wrote up their own notes based on what they found out.


This term we are learning all about robots. The children designed their robot including what the robot could do and then they made their robots using recyclable materials. Here is a picture of the drawings and Holly with her finished robot.


Treat day

Second class earned 170 marbles so they voted for what they would like for their treat. They voted for a ‘Spirit Day’/Pyjama party/disco. We had a great day and the children played a variety of team building games.


October and November

Mindfulness Week

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.

New pupil

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!


Welcome back!

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.
