The children in 2nd class have been busy creating lovely heART attack activities in preparation for Valentines Day in February. Take a look at some of the beautiful pieces of work that they have created.
Maths Week Ireland took place between the 15th and the 23rd of October 2022. Throughout the school the children engaged in a wide variety of mathematical activities from math games on the Chromebooks, Math quizzes on Zoom, Card games, Art activities focusing on Shape and Space, Problem Solving tasks and Math Buddies. The children from 6th class also engaged in a Math Workshop with lecturers from the DKIT. This workshop focused on binary code and how is used to create pixelated images.
The children from 6th class have been very busy working as peer tutors helping the children from 2nd class to log onto and off the Chromebooks. They helped them to complete an assignment on Google Classroom. The children had to type a Google document titled “All About Me”. As a treat they also got to play some educational games online when they completed their assignments.
The children in 2nd class have been very busy preparing for their Sacrament of First Penance. This took place in St. Fursey’s Church Haggardstown. It was a beautiful celebration attended by the children and their immediate families. They answered their prayers so well, sang beautiful songs and read their stories and prayers to perfection. They were brilliant.
The children have also been very busy planning English stories with good beginnings, middles, problems, resolutions and endings. These are on display in their classroom and are very interesting reads!
They have also created some beautiful Spring Art masterpieces. They have worked with oil pastels and created Spring Sunsets and tulip meadows. They are delightful pieces of art!
