Happy Halloween from Rang a Dó (2)🎃
Congratulations to our three Assembly Award winners for the month of October. Keep up the great work!
We had a pyjama/jersey day. Everyone wore their pj’s or favourite jersey to school and we collected lots of money for a chosen charity.
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! 🌳🍃
PE-Outdoor and Adventure
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’.
Art – Monochromatic Portraits
For Art, Ms Moriarty set the class a challenge to create Monochromatic Portraits which will be displayed in the lobby during Friendship Week. Here we are busy at work!
PE- Outdoor and Adventure
We enjoyed participating in a scavenger hunt.
Digital Learning- Ipads
The children enjoyed using the ipads. We recapped on skills previously learned in First Class- Recognising the icon for the device having Wifi, recognising that the iPad battery is low, opening safari and typing in words to carry out a search. We finished off with some fun Maths activities.
The class also had such fun using the iPads for a Kahoot Quiz where we revised some of the topics we have covered. We got very competitive!! Grúpa Gorm came out on top on this occasion!
Congratulations to our Assembly Award Winners for the month of September. 😀 Maith sibh!
