Second class made some spooky slime during a science lesson to celebrate Hallowe’en. We had loads of fun mixing together pva glue, baking powder and contact lense solution to make it. Happy Hallowe’en from Ms Gallagher’s Second Class!
Second class had a wonderful trip to Greenan Farm in Wicklow. We had loads of fun playing games with wheelbarrows and learnt about the history of the farm. We saw loads of farm animals and even got to feed a few of them too. The best part was all the fun we had in the maze, which was very tricky to find our way out!
Second class went on a school tip to Olympian Gymnastics’ brand new location last week. We had loads of fun learning new skills like cartwheels, handstands and scorpion kicks. We also had an amazing bouncy castle at the end.
The extra-curricular drama club, for 2nd and 3rd class children, had yet another successful term. Throughout the term the children practised the basics of stagecraft including imagination and creativity through expression and articulation. The children’s self-confidence and self-discipline thrived throughout the term and their hard work paid off in their end of term performance.
The children performed “Hoodwinked”- a Swashbuckling Robin Hood Musical for 1st-6th Classes and again for their families at the grand Finale on Thursday 11th April. All of the children who participated should be very proud of themselves – it was a fantastic performance!
Friday 14th December – a very special day, a very special play. We performed our first ever nativity “Hey Ewe” in Taney Church. We all worked together and told this joyful story through words and songs. Every single child was a star and we all had a wonderful time!
The children from 2nd and 3rd classes showed off all the skills they had learned this year at their Swimming Display held Loughlinstown Swimming Pool last week. They back to school wearing their shiny medals!
This Easter, the Active School Committee designed a wonderful Easter Number Hunt and Obstacle Course. Both 2nd Classes had a great time searching for their numbers inside the eggs which were hidden around the playground. When they found their number, they moved on to the obstacle course. Thank you very much to the Active School Committee for designing the obstacle course and for helping the children through various sections of it! Check out some of our photos which show the Active School Committee preparing the course and also capture 2nd Class having an exciting time completing it!
Children from 2nd and 3rd Classes participated in an after school Drama Club last term. Over the course of the term the boys and girls were hard at work learning lines from the play “Dragon Days”, which they performed for parents just before the Easter break. Ms. Warren and Ms. Lawrence were so impressed by how well they could sing, dance and deliver their lines in front of such a big audience. Well done!
We love to be active in 2nd Class!!
