2nd Class Seomra Iseult

This week Seomra Iseult have been working very hard! We have been learning all about time in Maths. In Gaeilge we are preparing a comhrá about aimsir and the boys and girls nearly have it ready. Also, in English we are reading the story, George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl and everyone is really enjoying it! We are all learning about the changes that spring brings, from the different flowers to the baby animals and this week we looked at William Wordsworth’s famous poem, Daffodils,...

We learnt a new song in Chinese. Above are the words and the song. Ask your child to sing it for you. We heard the story of the Willow Pattern and one of the children brought in a china plate with the pattern on it. The whole class made a Chinese Dragon and we named him “Flames”. It was very tricky. Teacher had great fun trying to hang it up!! It fell down so many times! We came up with ideas on how to design the head. We all brought in bits and pieces that we thought might work. In Maths we learnt about ‘Weight’ a few weeks ago Now we are diving into ‘Money’! We all dressed in blue for Diversity Day and we got really frustrated with Mrs. O’Connor while we were trying to do a spelling test! She kept distracting us with loud noses and smelly sprays and she was calling out the words way too fast. Afterwards we had a great discussion about what it might feel like to have special sensory needs. We tasted and smelled and touched things that weren’t quite what we expected. We learnt that it is important to be sensitive, patient and understanding to children in our school who have special sensory needs. We had a great time talking about our pets. Some of us brought in pictures to show the class. Mrs. O’Connor even brought in ‘Little Snowy’, Finán, Donnacha and Tadhg’s...

Seomra Setanta’s Bread and Butter

We have been busy making bread and butter! To make the butter we poured cream into a jar and shook it! It took a very long time! Our arms were very tired! After we made the butter we decided to bake some bread! We weighed the ingredients. We had to wait a while for the bread to rise. We were amazed when it did! Then we put the bread in the oven. When it was ready it smelt...
