Second Class

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. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art

 The children learned about the life of Painter Paul Cezanne and then drew and painted their own still life pictures. They turned out really well.

 

MATHS

 

In Maths the children learned about Hundreds, Tens and Units. They made groups of one hundred using straws in batches of tens and it made understanding the concept a little easier!

 

 

 

RELIGION

 

 

In class, we were exploring the theme of being connected.  The children made beings from lollipop sticks and they put them on a poster.

 

 

History

Second Class looked at the history of the Bicycle this month and created a wonderful timeline listing the main advances in the bicycle from the past to the present.

 

 

 

HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND A GREAT 2016 TO ALL

In Science in December, the children planted runner bean seeds in cotton wool. Each group had a specific task of using various amounts of water to see which ones would germinate first.

 

 

 

EASTER 1916 RISING PROJECT WORK

 

The second class children made a special project when the soliders came to present the Irish Flag and Proclamation to the school on Tuesday 8th December.  A special thank you to Daniel Heverin for making the Nelsons Pillar and Cian Prior who made O' Connell Bridge for the project.  A number of children played the tin whistle for the ceremony and did a fantastic job. All of the children played a huge part in this day and well done all for all the hard work put in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOVEMBER, SCIENCE WEEK

As part of Science Week, the children experimented with various colours and paper to ascertain what colours stood out better on what paper.

 

 

ART

The children completed Marble Ink pictures this month. They were amazed that each one had their own unique design.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Second Class Preparation for Holy Communion

We would like to give our heart felt thanks to Pauline Cogavin who recently visited the Vatican in Rome and brought every child in second class back a set of beautiful rosary beads. The children were so excited to receive them and were absolutely delighted with them. Thanks again to Pauline.

 

 

Halloween Fun

The children's costumes were fantastic in the run up to

Mid Term Break.

 

As part of Science this month, the children collected apple seeds and then planted them in class. There is a race to see whose seeds germinate first!

 

 

Halloween Themed Art

The children made Scarecrows from lollipop sticks in Art. They turned out really well and each had their own unique design.
