Class Photographs 2016
A huge thank you to Anna (Aurelia's mum) who took our class photos as well as making 56 pancakes with her own sugar free homemade hazelnut spread (yummy!).
Fun in the sun! ☀
We have been learning about The Water Cycle recently. We decided to learn this song because we liked it so much. It made the steps of the Water Cycle really clear and easy to understand.
We made Chinese lanterns and Valentine's Day Cards. ♥
We have had such a busy month in 2nd Class. We have been trying our best and really impressing our new teachers, Aoife and Eimear. We learned so much last month, it was great! For example, we learned about Bia (food in Irish), Explanatory writing, The Weather, Magnets and Electricity, Alexander Graham Bell and the invention of the telephone, The Story of Icarus and Daedalus and so much more. Check out our slideshow to see what we have been up to.
We are so lucky because our classroom libraries are getting a makeover. It is such an exciting time and there are lots of cool new books to read. Watch this space for some book recommendations and reviews!
Another skill we learned was Subtraction with renaming. Have a look at the Subtraction poem that we used to help us remember the steps. With lots of practice, it got much easier.
We can't wait to keep you updated with everything we are doing in our classes, so come back soon for another update.☺
We visited Westside Library again in January. This time we learned about the way the books are organised in the library and took part in a little quiz. The staff had a colouring station set up too which was very relaxing. We borrowed books and got a special class library card for 2nd Class in GETNS. We would also like to say thank you to Martha for coming with us. It was a lovely trip and we are already looking forward to our next visit.
Kasia came into 2nd Class 1 to give us our fist Salsa dancing lesson. We were so grateful and we can't wait to practice our moves again soon!

This week in 2nd Class:
We've been working on our Titanic PowerPoint presentations. The lovely 6th class students helped us to learn the basic skills before February mid-term and now we're pros!
Look at us practicing how to tell the Time!
Michelle is the best! She has been teaching us to finger-knit over the past couple of weeks and now we are ready to start knitting using needles!
Conor's mum Janet came in to do a table quiz with our class. We learned all about the food that was brought on the Titanic to feed the crew and passengers. Did you know that the Titanic was the first ship at the time to feed 3rd Class passengers on board? Before that, passengers in 3rd class had to pack their own food for the duration of the journey.
We learned about Weight and Forces.
If you want to learn about forces too, have a look at this website: https://www.flocabulary.com/forces-and-motion/
Pancake Tuesday Fun!
We conducted some experiments about Static Electricity and Magnetism. Have a look at the photographs below!
