A Walk in Spring!

Since returning to school after mid-term break there is no denying that Spring is most definitely upon us! We have been enjoying the beautiful sunny weather and blue skies every day in school and no doubt at home. Today we made the most of the sunshine and decided to go on a nature walk around the school and church grounds.

Working in pairs we had a checklist where we kept record of all of the signs of Spring that we encountered. We were mindful to use all of senses to truly appreciate all of the beautiful signs of nature around us. We were all very excited to spot some of the trees, flowers and insects that we had discussed previously in class, when we went exploring outside.














When we got back to class we all shared with each other what we discovered! Next week we will continue to learn about plants and flowers, studying the parts of the plant and flower and the function of each part. We will also learn about what plants need to grow and survive.

Busy times in room 12

We have been very busy the past few months in room 12. In October and November we were lucky enough to have another teacher in the class. Ms Dillon taught us a lot of new things including how to play the tin whistle. We had a lot of fun with her and we learned a lot.

Well done to the girls who came to school every day and got their attendance certificates. They are doing a great job. Keep up the good work girls!
We were learning a lot about 3-D shapes in November and we used 3-D shapes to make some cool constructions during maths stations.





 We have also been focusing on S.T.E.M. (Science, technology, engineering and maths) education over the last two months. We have using our engineering skills to build models and vehicles. This has involved a lot of planning and teamwork.








Super Second Class

We have been very busy in room 12 over the last few weeks.
In September we were learning all about ourselves. We learned about body parts in science and what we use them for. We learned all about our bones that help support our bodies and help us move. We learned about our five senses and the body parts we use for our senses.
In history we learned about how we have grown from babies to toddlers to children. We made timelines to show how much we have grown.




In art we learned about Pablo Picasso and read the book Picasso's Trousers by Nicholas Allen.
We learned how Picasso liked painting faces from the front and the side at the side at the same time and we decided to draw self portraits in this style. 


In maths we were revising our numbers from 1-100 as well as learning about 2-D shapes. On Fridays we are doing maths activities in our groups. We did lots of activities that involved shape and pattern.





In music we learned a song about a volcano in Mexico called Popacatepetl. We learned abou…
