Halloween Dress-Up in Ms. Dolan's Room
SESE Walking Tour
Ms. Dolan, Ms. Flannery, Ms. Keane, Ms. Rogerson and all 2nd classes went on a walking tour of Roscommon. They have been learning about 'Our Locality' in SESE and the walk was a great learning opportunity to consolidate their learning.
Recent Activities in Ms. Flannery's 2nd Class
It's been a busy few weeks in Ms. Flannery's 2nd class. Here is a snippet of some of the activities the children have been enjoying.
The children enjoyed maths week and played lots of games to help improve their maths skills!
Chuaigh na páistí amach sa chlós ar lá na Gaeilge. Bhí siad ag dreapadh agus ag luascadh ar an 'Jungle Gym' agus ag labhairt Gaeilge le chéile nuair a bhí siad ag súgradh.
The children have been learning all about the past and were invited to bring in artefacts from home to discuss and show to their classmates. There were some very interesting items brought in. Have a look!
They created potato print monsters for Halloween and made Rice Krispie buns after reading 'The Story of Chocolate'.
1st/2nd Class met an Author/Illustrator
On Tuesday, 2nd October, our 1st and 2nd classes walked to the library where they met author/illustrator Alan Nolan. They had a great time working with him and getting insight into his writing process.
2nd Class School Tour
The children in 2nd class visited Shannon River Adventure Centre in Rooskey for their end of year school tour. The weather was wonderful and the children enjoyed the activities such as kayaking, wall climbing and mudsliding.
2nd Class Went on a Snail Hunt!
The children in Ms. Flannery's 2nd Class made the most of the recent good weather and went on a snail hunt in the school grounds. They have been learning about minibeasts and their habitats in science and continued their learning outside. They checked many places to find the snails, knowing that snails prefer to live near rocks, ditches and plants for protection from their predators. They also found some other minibeasts during their hunt including ladybirds and spiders.
