Cathy’s 2nd Class

We had a super October so far. We visited the playground after earning 50 maith thú cards. We had a very interesting science talk all about Saturn and we completed lots of spooky Halloween art too.

We absolutely love reading. In school, we participate in Power Hour each day. We also are reading lots of novels such as Flat Stanley and The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl. Every Thursday we visit our fantastic school library. Here we are reading happily.

We are having a wonderful start to the school year in 2nd class. We have created tie dye butterflies, done many science experiments, learned about famous poets, started our power hour and participated in lots of exercise! We have been very busy here are some photos of our year so far.

Amazing Artists!

2nd Class had great fun learning about  self portraits. We thought that Van Gogh’s one was spectacular but weren’t such fans of Picasso’s take on his self portrait! Here we are painting our own ones.They turned out so well.

 We learned about Rudyard Kipling’s poem “If” in our first week back at school. Here are our written versions.
