Second Class Visit Abbotts


On Tuesday the 12th of December we went on a trip to Abbotts.

We met our partners who have been reading with us during our Time to Read sessions. They showed us their work stations and told us what they do every day.
We were also given a tour of the factory.
It was a great day out for us all!
Here are some photos of the day:

Science Fair 2017

Today, we had our annual Science Fair at school.  Second class have been learning about light and shadows.

We learned that light reflects off different materials for example, a mirror or a glass prism.

We also learned how shadows are made when light cannot pass through an opaque object.

The children also performed a shadow puppet show!



Be Safe, Be Seen.

This week in second class, we have been talking about the RSA’s ‘Be Safe, Be Seen’ campaign. We discussed how the evenings and mornings are darker now that it is Winter. Children know how important it is to keep active during the Winter but that we also need to keep safe.  Each child received a high-visibility arm band so that they can wear it if they are walking to school, playing outside or if they are outside on their bikes.

Here we are wearing our high-visibility armbands:

Oíche Shamhna: Rang a dó

This morning we had some scary monsters in second class! We had witches, skeletons, zombies and loads more! They all made a great effort to dress up and some even made their costumes from scratch.

Hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween!

Here are some photos of these scary monsters.



2nd Class Music Generation

In second class we have been so lucky to have Music Generation come into our class every Wednesday morning.  We are learning about ‘the beat’ and ‘the rhythm’ in different songs. We also got a chance to play some interesting musical instruments such as the mandolin, ukulele and a cavaquinho!

Second Class September 2017

Second Class have been very busy starting back this September.

We have been learning about each other and talking about some of our favourite things.

Here is our ‘All About Me’ wall chart.

We also love talking about nature and here is our Nature Table that we created by bringing different aspects of nature into our classroom.
