Ms. Donohoe’s class went on a Nature Walk through Doorly Park yesterday. We already learned all about the parts of trees and what job they have in science. Thank you to Shailagh Healy who told us stories about some of the trees. We brought leaf samples back to the classroom for leaf rubbings and labelling.

Energy Workshop

Lisa visited our classroom today to talk to us about energy. We formed an energy chain to show how energy moves from the sun to the wheat growing in the field, then the farmer harvests the wheat and it is made in to cornflakes in a factory. We eat the cornflakes to give us energy!

Afterwards we had a race to see which team could dress themselves well for the cold months ahead to keep heat energy inside their bodies!

 

Running in Rang a Dó

For September and October we are working in the Athletics strand in our P.E lessons. We watched videos of other children running and talked about what they were doing well and how they could improve. For example, we should look forward when we run. We assessed our own running skills in partners this week. Great running everyone!!!

2nd class went on their school tour to Lough Key. We went on a very enjoyable boat ride and even saw Teddy Bear island. The fairies take any lost teddy there. Ollie, the captain of the boat surprised us with karaoke. We had so much fun. We went on the tree top walk, had a picnic and finished our tour in the playground. We all finally relaxed with an ice-cream.

Lots of boys and girls from 2nd class made a special donation to the homeless today. They donated some of their Holy Communion money to people in need. We were so happy to have raised €245.70. We hope that this money will help people in some way. Thanks to Mary, from the Simon Community for coming to our school. The boys and girls asked Mary lots of questions about her job and about all the wonderful work that is done. Well done 2nd class.
