We have been very busy creating some lovely Art displays this year in Second class. Using crepe paper, we made some colourful Autumnal trees. We did self portraits, see can you spot us without looking at the names! We created some spooktacular scenes for Halloween. We went on our Autumn walk searching for Irish trees, flowers,fruits and minibeasts. We had great fun!




We have been very busy in 2nd class. We have been working hard during our literacy stations and are now back learning through Maths Stations.



Poetry was one of the genres we studied this term, we learned about the structure of poems, using rhyme etc. Both classes wrote Acrostic poems – Ms. Smith’s on the theme of Winter and Ms. O’Growney’s on China, both topics linked to our S.E.S.E. curriculum.




We enjoyed getting ready for Grandparents Day and some of us were lucky enough to have our Grandparents visit our school and classrooms. We created some beautiful flowers outlining what we love about our Grandparents.



And recently we learned about John Barry in History and that a bridge in the United States has been named after him. It got us thinking about bridges, their structures and how they were made. We decided we would like to try our hand at being engineers. Here are some of our results.
