2nd & 3rd Class 2019-2020 Denise O Riordan

September:

Welcome Back!!! I hope you all had a lovely summer! We have been very busy since we came back to school!! We have been enjoying taking part in games that promote friendships in SPHE and have also enjoyed the "Buddy System" when we are out on yard at break!

We got to use the computers for the first time!!!! It was very exciting and we all had great fun!! We were using "Google Maps" in geography to find our homes and places of interest in Kanturk!!

We have learned a rap as Gaeilge called "Shiúil mé"!! We perform it with actions and have really mastered it this week!! Ask us to perform it for you at home!!

We have been working a lot with concrete materials in maths beacuse we are learning all about "Place Value". We have been writing lots of Diary entries under the writing style; "Recount". We have read them out to our classmates and we all have enjoyed listening to them! We have been working hard to keep our copies neat and hope to continue this throughout the year!!!

We have been learning about "Mime" in Drama and the class are fantastic performers!! We start music on Monday the 16th September which we are excited about! We created beautiful paintings on Friday using the technique "Pointillism". Ask us about it!! Our self portraits outside our door are also fantastic! We really have a lot of artists in the classroom!

On Wednesday the 18th, Third class are started Computer Coding for eight weeks which we are very fortunate to have available to us in this school! Second class have a very exciting year ahead of them with their Communion! We hope to have an enjoyable and fun filled year of learning!
