Second Class-Term 2 2022/23

Second class have had a busy few weeks. On Monday 13th of March, the children made their First Confession with the help of Fr John, Fr Michael and Fr David. We look forward to making our First Holy Communion in May.

In SESE we have been learning about the Titanic and we created beautiful projects to showcase what we have learned. We are very excited to see the arrival of our bug hotel on our playground as part of the Green Schools campaign. Ms Hibbitt and Ms Mullally completed a lesson about bug hotels with our classes and we loved learning about what Gerry has made.

In SPHE we completed the Land PAWS water safety programme. We learned about how to stay safe when near water in homes, farms, beaches and rivers. We all got a lovely certificate once we had completed the course. It was lots of fun!

Second Class-Term 1 2022

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.

Term 3

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.

As part of our SESE, we have been learning about the hedgerow and completed a Scavenger Hunt around the school yard. We have also been discussing the importance of ‘Road Safety’ around our school and had a poster competition in class.
