Welcome to the class page.
Second class have gotten off to a great start. We are doing great work and having lots of fun. We have been so busy already learning new dance moves, songs and we are even starting swimming this Friday.
We have been busy learning about ‘Electricity’. We learned about electrical appliances and if they were powered by battery or mains electricity. We had fun investigating static electricity too. We used a balloon and different materials, e.g. cardboard, tea leaves, salt, sugar to see if they were attracted to static electricity. We learned to keep safe when using electricity and around electric wires/ boxes.

World Book Day
To celebrate World Book Day, the children dressed up as characters from some of their favourite books. Everyone made a huge effort, the costumes were fantastic and the children really enjoyed the day. We had a great time talking about our favourite fiction and non-fiction books, writing character profiles and book reviews and recommending our favourite books and authors to friends!
Landmarks of Ireland and the world
After learning all about famous landmarks in Ireland and around the world. The children choose their favourite and created it using recyclable materials. The children showed great creativity when making their pieces and their final pieces were amazing! Take a look to see their brilliant work!
Room 30 is definitely filled with many engineers, We really enjoyed our workshop. We created roller coasters using a variety of materials and created kinetic energy!
Road Safety Week
In Room 30, we have been focusing on Road Safety this week. We took a walk outside and found some of the dangers we need to be careful of when crossing the road, e.g. parked cars, bends in road, etc. In Second Class we follow the safe cross code when crossing the road! We look forward to learning more about Road Safety this week!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
We made cards and drawings inspired by Kandinsky. We really enjoyed exploring this artists work.
