Busy in 2nd Class

Stephen’s 2nd class have been busy the past couple of week settling into our new class. Lots of hard work has been done. Here is a quick summary of what we have been up to.

In literacy we have been busy with our station teaching. In maths we have been revising addition and subtraction that we did in 1st class. Our Gaeilge theme at the moment is ‘bia’ and we have been working on this. The children were busy in music with ‘song singing’, learning and practicing ‘Ireland’s Call’. In art, we have been making self portraits out of recycled materials. This week, we studied the work of Piet Mondrian and were inspired to do some painting in that style. In science we were learning about taste and the different types of taste: bitter, sweet, salty and sour. This included some tasting of different foods, which everyone was keen to do! In history, we looked at how we change over time by looking at ‘My Timeline’. While in geography we were learning about mapping and we created some maps of the school. In In PE we have been practicing our catching and throwing skills.
