World Book Day 2022 📚
To celebrate World Book Day we dressed up as our favourite book characters. We had lots of fun sharing our favourite book with our classmates. Check out our costumes! Can you guess which book character we are? 📚📚
We also took part in the ‘Masked Reader challenge’ and enjoyed trying to identify our teachers voices.
We enjoy participating in some mental Maths activities such as Noggle, Daily 10 and Problem of the Day.
We learned all about the life and work of Wassily Kandinsky. Kandinsky explored the effect of placing different colours side by side. We created a large snail using concentric circles with contrasting colours.
Lá Fhéile Vailintín💕
We discussed the story of St. Valentine and created some lovely artwork to share with our families. To top off our day, we were given a homework pass and got to spend more time with family and friends.
Congratulations to our Assembly Award winners for the month of February.
Second class (2) engaged in lots of activities for Wellbeing Week. We enjoyed some meditation sessions and the class discussed their uniqueness. We constructed a paper chain each link representing our individual strengths.
Meditation and Mindfulness
I can/ you can
The children discussed kindness and enjoyed participating in the ‘Compliment Cup’ activity. Each child was given the opportunity to compliment and say something positive about another classmate. 🌸
To conclude ‘Wellbeing Week’ we participated in some board games. The children enjoyed relaxing together with a little competitive fun!
We played a game called ‘Roll and Read’. This helped us to revise our ‘y’ and ‘igh’ sound.
Well done to our January Assembly Award winners!

Gaeilge Power Hour
We began Gaeilge Power Hour in Rang a Dó (2). We are joined each afternoon by Ms. Mc Glynn and Ms. Mulderrig. We are are working on phonics, Irish reading and verbs. We work at three different stations. Déantar briathar amháin gach seachtain agus cuireann na páistí an briathar sin san Aimsir Chaite. Chruthaíonn said abairtí ag úsáid an briathar. Bíonn na páistí ag léamh agus ag déanamh fonaicí le Múinteoir Mc Glynn agus Múinteoir Mulderrig. Maith sibh a pháistí! Sár-obair!☘️☘️

Happy Halloween from Rang a Dó (2)🎃

The class really enjoyed Maths Week. We participated in various maths games, challenges and a Maths scavenger hunt. Lots of fun and learning had by all!
We designed some ‘spooktacular’ Halloween masks. 🎃
For Art this term our theme is Portraits. We drew half of our faces using charcoal. They are proudly displayed outside our classroom door.
We also explored the life and work of an artist called Edward Munch and created our own interpretation of ‘The Scream’. Take a look at some samples of our work. 🖌🖍
In Science we have learned all about trees in particular the Coast Red Wood tree. We also studied different parts of plants. We planted some cress seeds and had lots of fun watching them grow. The class discovered that plants need soil, water and lots of sunshine. Here you can see our results! 🌳🍃

We worked together using a map, instructions, hoops, cones, quoits and beanbags to create ‘Funny Faces.’
Rang a Dó (2) had a very busy September! We are settling back into school life very well.
This term we are doing Recount Writing. We looked at page layout, discussed how we write a good recount and recapped on capital letters, full stops and finger spacing. The children were delighted to see some of their work displayed on the ‘Wow Wall’.
