Second Class

Fáilte romhat go Rang a Dó

We kicked off our first week back at school with an alphabet scavenger hunt. We were learning in a fun, relaxed and natural way. Who said learning can’t be fun while outside?!

We are very lucky in our school to now be getting hot lunches delivered right to our door. We have a great menu to choose from  each day and the food is delicious!!!

We have been working hard in Art, exploring all about primary and secondary colours. We had great fun experimenting and mixing to create our own secondary colours.  Check out our colourful snails!



Autumn is a wonderful time to spot changes in Nature and the world around us. We did a minibeast and leaf hunt identifying as many of both as we could. As you can see, we were very successful!





Continuing our Autumn theme into Art, we chose tree leaves we had found on our hunt to inspire our ‘Shattered Leaf Art’. We included oak, sycamore,  horse chestnut and beech leaves. We achieved the shattered look by cutting the leaf into jigsaw pieces and placing each shape back down with a little space between each, showing the black background.  They are very effective!
