Fáilte go Rang a Dó (2)
The children have been learning about Time and enjoyed making their own clocks with Ms. Curtin to show quarter past, quarter to and half past. They have especially enjoyed playing ‘analogue and digital clock snap’ in pairs!
The Water Cycle
Our Animal Hand-prints
Taking the school’s art theme this term ‘Animals’, the children creatively made ‘ainmhithe’ using hand-prints, inking up thumbs, fists, fingers and palms and printing on white sheets. The children cut out their prints and assembled them on a large white sheet, creating a variety of animals in the animal kingdom such as flamingos, bears, swans, giraffes, jellyfish, chickens, deer and fish to name but a few. Our prints are now on display in the corridor outside our classroom.
Music In the Classroom in The National Concert Hall
The children thoroughly enjoyed the concert performed by the RTÉ Symphony Orchestra in the National Concert Hall. We even got the chance to sing out the song we have been learning in class with Dublin Youth Choir, ‘Believe’ by Natasha Marsh. Bhí lá iontach againn!
As our class were learning about Fairtrade we decided to get a special Advent calendar produced by local farmers from the Kuapa Kokoo tribe. Well done to all the children who did a fabulous job recreating the Nativity for our Christmas show. Maith sibh!

Jigsaw Method: The Arctic
Second Class adored learning about the Arctic animals in groups. Each group researched an animal and then every group member compiled a presentation sheet. It was their job then to go to another group and share all of their research and learning. They produced fabulous work and Ms. Judge was very proud of them!

The winner of the ‘Every School Day Counts’ Junior Poster Competition was selected from our class! ‘It’s not okay to be away’ was his message and we are delighted with his beautiful artwork! Maith thú!
