2nd Class created an autumn display through art and this is displayed outside our classroom. “Reading Leaves You Happy”. We designed the tree using brown wrapping paper. We coloured and cut out leaves and our class picked a book about Halloween to stick on the tree’s hands! We named our tree “Mr. Acorn”! Happy Halloween from everyone in 2nd Class! 2nd Class entered the Credit Union Art Competition. They created some beautiful art pieces related to the theme “It’s A Wonderful World”. 2nd Classes really enjoyed their local nature trail with Martin Curley in October down the lane behind our school. We learnt about rocks, nature , autumn and old buildings such as the old school and handball alley.
Second class were very busy preparing for our First Holy Communion. We finally had our big day out on May 14th. We learned lots of prayers and many of our classmates read the prayers of the faithful, the readings and the communion reflection. Afterwards, we got a photo taken in the church and came back to the school to meet our friends in the hall.
