2nd Class - Room 4

2nd Class is coming to an end!

 

We have had a lovely end to a great year in 2nd Class. We have been very busy with our Active Schools Week. We really enjoyed our Sports Day and we had so much fun with the parachute, obstacle course and races. We were so lucky to have an ice cream van visit our school and we got to enjoy delicious ice cream as a treat for all our hard work throughout the year! We have been very creative in our Art lessons recently and we really enjoyed taking inspiration from Alma Woodsey Thomas to create our own amazing artwork! We have had a great year in 2nd Class and we are looking forward to new adventures in 3rd Class!

What we have been up to in Room 4!

We had a very busy December getting ready for Christmas, and preparing our Christmas show. We worked very hard to learn our Christmas songs just in time for the big day! We have been learning lots of new skills in our GAA classes over the past few weeks. We have been playing Gaelic football, and hurling, which we really enjoyed! In our Maths lessons, we have been working very hard on fractions, especially ½ and ¼. We enjoyed playing lots of Maths games using playing cards, cubes, and matching cards. Recently, we have learned about the famous artist ‘Kandinsky’ in our art lessons, and we created our own Valentine’s art taking inspiration from Kandinsky.

We love to explore in Room 4!

We have been very busy in Room 4 this term, learning about minibeasts, autumn, adjectives and Halloween! We went on a minibeast hunt and found lots of cool minibeasts living in our school grounds. We have been very busy learning all about autumn and we created our own autumn leaves in Art. We also really enjoyed making our pumpkins and we loved using the glitter! In Literacy, we have been learning about adjectives, and used adjectives to describe the pumpkin. We have also been very busy with our Maths games this term. We have been using cards and the dice to order numbers, find doubles, and to solve problems. We are  having so much fun in 2nd Class!
