2nd class had a fantastic day today at Active Fest. A big well done to 6th class and Ms. Jacob for organising such a fun-filled day!
We have been learning lots about éadaí (clothes) in Irish over the last while. Here is a fun game to practise some of our new vocabulary.
St Patrick’s Day Rap
We have been learning a new song in 2nd class for St. Patrick’s Day. If you would like to sing along here is the link below.
March – Active Homework
We are dancing our way through our PE lessons for March. Here are some ideas for your Active homework this month.
World Book Day
In 2nd class we celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March. We started off the day heading outside for a Where’s Wally search around the yard.
After this we read the story of Giraffes Can’t Dance. This story encourages us to be unique and enjoy being our own person. We all described why we were unique and wrote about it. We then decorated our giraffes to display in the classroom.
Here is what our giraffes turned out like…
To finish off the day, 2nd class looked at a variety of picture books. They worked independently or with a partner to complete a Book Scavenger Hunt on their chosen book.
We have been working hard on the theme of Internet Safety this week. On Friday we have an Internet Safety assembly which will involve the while school. One of the activities will be to sing the following song. Maybe it might be nice to sing this song at home also.
2nd class have been working together and completing some team building tasks. Take a look at the pictures to see how well they all work together.
Active Homework – February
Here is a list of activities that can be completed for Active homework for the month of February.
2nd class had lots of fun decorating Christmas foods. We began with chocolate marshmallows. We dipped them in melted chocolate and added Christmas sprinkles and white chocolate drops. During our pajama party we decorated gingerbread biscuits with sugar icing, jellies and Smarties!
There was great excitement when Santa arrived to Springdale this week.
