Welcome Back!

Welcome back to school everyone!

Our First Holy Communion will take place on the 23rd of May.

Our topic this month is "Ourselves".  We will be learning about caring for ourselves, our bones and muscles, our senses and thinking and talking about when we were babies.  We will also be learning about healthy eating and the importance of a healthy lunch.

In maths we will be doing lots of revision and addition and subtraction all the way to 100.  We will be playing lots of maths games and working hard on our mental maths.  Here is a good website for learning your tables

In English we have started our shared readers and we will soon start our class reader.  We will be making weekly visits to the school's library.  It would also be a good idea to join Ballybane library as reading is so important in 2nd class.

We will be trying to speak a lán Gaeilge sa seomra ranga.  Here are some dánta we are learning at the moment.

Failte Isteach

Buail ar an doras
Is féach isteach;
Ban díot do hata
Agus siúil isteach;
Suigh ar an stól
Agus bí ag ól - 
Is cén chaoi a bhfuil tú 
ar maidin?

Bogha Báistí

Dearg agus glas,
Gorm agus buí.
Féach sa spéir,
An bogha báistí.

Ag ceann an bogha,
Tá pota breá mór.
Féách isteach ann,
Is leatsa an t - ór.

2nd class is a very busy and fun year for the children.  Along with all the preparations for First Communion and First Confession, the children will be going swimming for the first time.
