Second Class

Home Learning

Even though we haven’t been in school I’m happy to report that the children in 2nd class have been working hard at home and doing lots of fun and interesting things like planting, baking, painting, drawing, exercising, creating, building, feeding the birds, reading great books, writing stories and letters, playing shop and making timetables. I’ve even heard some children have been learning new languages and doing coding and probably lots more!

Keep up the great work everyone, I am so proud of you all!

🌱Spring Planting in Ailbhe’s Class🌱

Before the school closure our class had done some planting. I popped into school yesterday to collect them and take them home to look after them. I was so happy to see how well they had grown. Thanks so much to George who watered them for us.

Check out this video to see how much they’ve grown 🌱

We have been learning about time.

We were busy making timetables in CJ’s class.

We were learning to put a time on our daily activities.

We had to draw pictures of our activities and use blank clocks to fill in specific times during our school day.

We have been learning about Spain🇪🇸

This month we learned lots of new things about Spain. We all did wonderful projects and presented them to our class. To celebrate, we had our very own Spanish Fiesta. We prepared our own bread with tomato, olive oil and garlic, a Spanish fruit salad and a sparkling citrus fruit drink. We then enjoyed it with our friends and listened to some Spanish music.Check out this video to see all the fun Ailbhe’s class had.
