Second Class

Never Bored with Board Games

The children brought in their favourite board games in June. Playing with certain board games can really help children with maths and the children had fun while learning.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Second Class School Tour 2016

The children had a fantastic time at "Lets Go" in Gormanstown on tuesday 21st June. It was a perfect day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

April in Second Class

 

MATHS

 

In Maths the children covered Capacity and there was lots of fun measuring water with various containers!

 

 

 

GEOGRAPHY/SCIENCE

The children learned about different house materials across the globe. Also in conjunction with Geography we explored the science and properties of materials. We also looked at building houses from different materials and discussed the advantages of some building materials in terms of climate and durability. Here are some of the small models the children made:

 

Plastic

 

LEGO

 

 

 

CLAY

 

The Month of May

SESE

 

This month the children looked at Ants. They did the story "The Ant and the Dove" and in Science, they were able to name and label the body parts of an ant. The children went outside and they looked at how ants moved in their environment. They wrote a short report on their mini field trip.

 

 

GEOGRAPHY

This month, the children were very interested in learning about how to look after their environment. They investigated the affects of air and litter pollution. They made a fantastic poster to highlight the issues which they had learned about.

 

 

 

SCIENCE

Second class planted some sunflowers and brought them home this month. With the summer here, we hope the sun stays out and they bring an extra splash of colour to the gardens!

 

 

MAY - THE MONTH OF MARY

I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH HOW THE CHILDREN LEARNED THE TIMELESS HYMN "THE BELLS OF THE ANGELUS"

THE CHILDREN MADE A SPECIAL TRIP TO THE ALTAR IN THE SCHOOL TO SING THE HYMN AND PLAY THE TIN WHISTLE. IT WAS A VERY SPECIAL MOMENT. 

 

 

 

Ireland is

The second class did some great work recently on Ireland in lieu of the celebration of Ireland and 1916.

To conclude their work, they put together a great photostory.

Take a look!

 

FUN LEARNING FEBRUARY

MATHS

One of the topics the children covered this month, in Mathematics was Weight. They experimented with various items which weighed greater or smaller than each other. They read and recorded weight in grams and kilograms using a weighing scales. They also counted on the scales, how many lego blocks it would take to weigh the same amount as various objects in their environment.

 

 

 

RELIGION

Preparation for First Penance is well underway.

The children made their own sheep to be placed on a poster for the church when they attend their First Penance. I wish them my very best as they embark on their continued journey towards the Sacrament of Communion.

 

THE ART OF HEARTS

The children began the process of cutting out hearts from material. They then put a mixture made from flour and water on them and left them to dry. Afterwards, they painted them using food colouring. They were very proud of their achievements. There was a lovely verse added to create a Mother's Day picture.
