Second Class 2 (Ms. O’Meara)

Fáilte go Rang a Dó (2)

 

 

Welcome to our second class page. Have a look at some of the fun things that we have been doing in class so far this year. 

Science Blast

We all brainstormed great questions to ask Zig and Zag. We agreed that this one was our favourite and Tyler, Zayhne and Aisling were chosen from our raffle to make the video for RTE. We are waiting to hear if  Zig and Zag have found an answer for us. 

Athletics

We have been working really hard on our athletics Strand in P.E. Here you can see us practice our javelin throwing skills.

Maths Games

We love playing games to practice our addition and counting on strategies. Here we are playing our ‘Make 50’ game. Maybe you can play this at home too.

Easter Masterpieces

We really enjoyed making our Easter Bunnies from Fabric. We designed our bunnies and write up the procedure we followed in our First Steps copies.

Exploring with lines 

We explored all the different types of lines we could draw and designed our Easter Bunny drawings using these lines. We added some accessories to make them as fashionable as we could.

 

 

World Book Day

We had great fun on World Book Day. We saw fantastic costumes and really enjoyed guessing the teacher’s reading in the masked reader activity. Thank you Mr. Glynn.

 

Our Christmas Nativity

Each one of us worked really hard for our Nativity Play this year. We hope you enjoy it!

Please note: PE days for October are Tuesdays & Thursdays. Tracksuits and runners must be worn on these days!

Art : Portraits

During the month of September we were focusing on drawing portraits. One week we designed silhouette portraits showing things that we like. Another week we designed symmetrical portraits with pencils and charcoal. Have a look at some of the fantastic masterpieces here. 

 

P.E

For our P.E this term we have been covering our outdoor and adventure strand along with games. 

 

 

Science : Our 5 senses

This month our focus was on ourselves and our 5 senses. We did lots of experiments to explore each of our senses. Here we are trying to figure out whether the material in the bag was sugar or salt . We couldn’t really know for sure which material was which, until we got to our taste test!
