1st and 2nd Class


We have had a fantastic first month back to school and such a fantastic start to 1st and 2nd Class. Here is a sneak peak into some of the work and play that has been taking place in our class over the last 5 weeks.


Our September Aistear and SESE theme was "Myself". We explored this theme through a variety of activities in History, Geography, Science, Art and Drama. Some of these activities included a hospital role play area, a cutting and sticking station, an art station, a writing station and a construction area. Here are some photographs of our super work during Aistear.

We have been doing a lot of practice of our Gaeilge in school this month. We have been doing some group games, learning poems and playing some interactive vocabulary games.

We worked really hard at perfecting our basketball skills in September. We started out using beanbags to practise throwing and catching and quickly moved onto more specific basketball skills using the basketballs such as dribbling, chest passes and shooting. We are looking forward to continuing our practice of these skills in next month.

Friendship Week

The final week of September was our school Friendship Week. We did lots of activities to celebrate Friendship Week. We sang the song "Circle of Friends", we had circle time to discuss how we can be fantastic friends and we had a colouring competition. We read the story "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" which addresses kindness and happiness. We then wrote about the different ways we can fill others buckets and show kindness to our peers and friends.
