You’re all very welcome to the 2nd class blog 2019-20. We will be sharing all the exciting things we’ve been doing at the end of each month so make sure you keep your eyes peeled! 😊
We got off to a great start by making some goals for the year. We will be checking in to see if we have reached our goals throughout the year.
We have really enjoyed getting back into speaking Gaeilge this month, especially all the drama we have been doing through Gaeilge! We have also been learning some songs as Gaeilge. Our favourite is Coldplay! 🇮🇪
Larry and Gary have returned for another term of soccer which we love! We have been learning lots of new skills and practising them during our matches. ⚽️
We made good use of the weather while we had it and got out for a nature walk where we collected lots of mini-beasts! Along with this, we have done some planting in order to test whether plants grow without light.
You won’t believe the fantastic artwork we have done this month! We began by doing self-portraits and then took a look at the work of Vincent Van Gogh 🎨
Lastly, we have been doing some fantastic typing and reading every Monday. Take a look at how concentrated we are!
Bye for now!
Good morning everyone and welcome to our 4th diary entry of the week. We started off this morning by playing maths games in groups. We play maths games every Thursday. The maths games are really fun but it makes our brains work at the same time. Some of the games we play are called Rocket Race, Sea Time and Snakes and Ladders. While we were busy playing games, Anita was busy putting up our Christmas
tree and Ellen was busy sorting out the costumes for our Christmas Play.
We had a lovely time out on yard. We needed to give our brains a rest after all their hard work this morning. When we came back in from yard we had some relaxing DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) time. Olaf were the lucky table to be able to sit in the library today. Afterwards we had to write our diary entry for yesterday as we didn’t have any time to do it. After lunch we will be going into the hall to practise our play with Mrs. Baker. This will be the first time we have practised outside of the classroom and we are very excited about it.
Welcome to part two of our diary. As always we started our day by writing down our homework and doing our mental maths. In Irish we were learning our spellings. Today we focused on the word sneachta. Some of the sentences we came up with were “Is maith liom sneachta”, “lá fuar atá ann” and “tá fear sneachta sa ghairdín.”
After Irish we moved on to Maths. We started a new topic today, we were looking at calendars. We each got a calendar for the month of December and filled in each of the important dates. We discovered that December is a very busy month for us. We have 4 birthdays in the class and 2 of the teacher’s birthdays were today. We also realised that it is only 14 days to our Christmas Play!
After break we practised our Christmas play in front of Mrs. McBain and she thought we were all brilliant. We had a lovely lunch and play in the yard. Afterwards we made some fabulous looking Christmas cards that will be brought home with us today. We had an amazing day in school. Don’t forget to check back in with us tomorrow.
This week we will be writing a diary, we will be writing a new diary entry each day. We are writing this diary so that you know just how busy and hardworking we are here in Second Class. We got the idea to write a diary from a book we are reading called ‘Diary of a Writer’. We hope you enjoy reading our diary.
As soon as we get to school the hard work begins. We have to write down our homework and do our mental maths. At 8:50 we put our pencils down and stand up to do our morning ‘Wake Up and Shake Up!’ This morning we danced to the song ‘Life of the Party’. Our very own monster, Blob Ross, evolved onto level 2.
Afterwards we began practising for our Christmas Play. We did really well, we would rate our performance as an 8 today. Throughout our play we were singing our songs. We are all really excited to perform our play for you all. After our hard work performing it was time for break. We had a great time out in yard.
We hope you enjoyed our diary and don’t forget to look at it again tomorrow.
