Welcome to Ms. Crowley's 2nd Class
seachtain na gaeilge
We have had such a busy week in 2nd Class with the boys and girls making their First Confession on Monday and Tuesday and celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge in the one week. We went on a hunt for Teidí this week to find out: Cad atá á dhéanamh ag Teidí? We learned some new Irish dances with the other 2nd classes, including An Damhsa Mór. We performed a poem, a song and a tin whistle tune at Assembly to celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge! Bhí an-spraoi againn ag an Lá Glas!
Boys and girls in 2nd Class celebrated receiving their second Sacrament this week - their First Confession. They learned the steps to reconciliation and learned new prayers. Your teachers and parents are so proud to see you take your next steps in your faith journey.
A special 'Thank You' to the Parents' Association who organised 'Party Bags' for the boys and girls in 2nd Class!
The boys and girls in 2nd Class were hard at work as engineers for the week. We learned about what engineers do and we planned, designed and made our own marble mazes. We wanted to share our creations with all of the other 2nd Class pupils so we visited each other and tried out everyone's marble maze. Here is how they turned out!

Here is some of our Hallowe'en artwork!
When we finished learning about Mé Féin in Gaeilge we met up with the 4th Class students to practise our Ceisteanna agus Freagraí.
ALL ABOUT MYSELF
We have been learning about each other. In Science, we investigated the most common eye colour and hair colour in the class (blue eyes and brown hair). In Art, we drew our eyes and put in our likes and interests. In SPHE we read Paul the Pigeon, Sabina the Swallow and Finley the Finch. These books tell us about how everybody is different and special in their own way. We made some birds in Art!
2nd Class started Gymnastics lessons. We have practised bridges, forward rolls, shoulder rolls and Rock 'n Rolls!
The boys and girls have settled into Ms. Crowley's 2nd Class really quickly and with that, the children have been able to use the school Chromebooks for the first time. We are learning how to navigate our way through them to play Maths and Spellings games.
Here are some of the Art activities the children have completed so far in 2nd Class. We have been learning about one another and our special qualities. The children used mirrors to help them with their self-portraits. They did a super job!
