First Class 2 (Ms. Brannigan)

Rang a hAon 2  

Welcome to our class page! Please take a look at what we have been up to in 1st class 2…

December 2018

One afternoon, while working on the iPads, we were surprised by a special visitor…

Irish Dancing (December 2018)

We really enjoyed getting active and learning new Irish dancing steps!


A trip to the garden (November 2018)

We were very lucky to have a special visitor in our class this month. Patrick the gardener came to teach us about native Irish animals. He brought us on a nature walk and showed us how to search for different habitats. Back in our classroom, we were even able to tell him some facts about the fox and the oak tree!




Maths Week 2018

During maths week the children completed an exciting maths trail. They worked in groups to solve a variety of maths problems. Each group needed to read the map correctly and run to the correct clue. They then worked out the problem and recorded their answers. Congratulations to our winners, Lyosha and Kate!



Learning about measures in Power Hour (September/October 2018)

We have been learning about different measures in our Power Hour groups. First we looked at ordinal numbers and how they help us to order items. The children completed a range of challenges, matching letters of the alphabet/birthday candles to the correct ordinal number. They then began learning about the days of the week & months of the year. They used their sequencing skills to order them correctly.



We learned about length and how to measure using cubes.

The children then used the cubes to compare different lengths. They used whiteboards to record their results.



We learned about money and opened our class shop. The children were very excited to be given real coins! They needed to read the price tags, decide what they could afford and give the shopkeeper the correct amount.




Caint agus Comhrá i rang a hAon (Méan Fómhair 2018)

Táimid ag úsáid cúpla frasaí gach lá mar shampla; ‘Is mise _________’, ‘Cé túsa?, ‘Conas atá tú?’, ‘Tá mé go maith/níl mé go maith’, ‘Chonaic mé ______ inné’ srl.


Tír gan teanga, tír gan anam!                         

Oral Language (September 2018)

Learning about opposites. The children tested each other and played a variety of guessing games to improve their oral language skills.We had some very enthusiastic winners by the end of the lesson!
