Our trip to the local community garden

June 7th, 2018 · Comments Off on Our trip to the local community garden

We visited Hubert who takes care of the local community garden. We looked at some amazing things him and the group are growing such as cucumbers, black tomatoes and even sweetcorn. We were very lucky to try the amazing cucumbers and lettuce . Hubert told us about the bees he keeps and why they are so important. We even got to hold some honey comb and try some of the honey straight from it. Did you know each section of a the honey comb is exactly the same size? Bees make amazing mathematicians!

Nature walk to Tymon Park with Éanna Ní Lamhna

April 30th, 2018 · Comments Off on Nature walk to Tymon Park with Éanna Ní Lamhna

Today we went on a walk to Tymon Park with Éanna Ní Lamhna. We learned how male ducks have green heads & females have brown heads. We looked at different flowers and learned why daisies are called so; days eye, because they open their petals in day time and close them at night. We saw a rare flower called cowslip and learned how dandelions were used to make medicine. We also looked for insects in leaves on certain trees. We did this by holding an umbrella upside down & shook the leaves into it to see what insects fell out.

Making maths fun- second class found maths is all around us

October 19th, 2017 · Comments Off on Making maths fun- second class found maths is all around us

On Wednesday Second class explored the surrounds of the school and discovered how maths is in fact everywhere: finding Number, Patterns, Doubles, Symmetry, 2D & 3D Shapes. Hurricane Ophelia left us with an ample supply of leaves to ‘investigate’ symmetry. We then created posters in groups to show what we had discovered.

October 9th, 2017 · Comments Off on Second class- we named our new class pet

After settling into second class really well, we had an unexpected addition- a new class pet, a long haired hamster. We took a tally to decide what to call him. We decided on Charlie. Charlie was chosen as our teacher is reading us the story of Charlie and the chocolate factory. We have since researched and completed projects on hamsters and had great fun in doing so.

 

Our Tally

Hi I’m Charlie and very excited to be a part of second class.
