2020 - 2021 

2nd & 3rd Class 

November

November has been an action packed month in school. We have had science week , where we tried to build a free standing tower using only newspaper and some sellotape. We had a presentation from Trinity College Dublin, giving us a greater understanding of the Corona Virus. We did some drawings and carried out an experiment to show how important hand washing is. We had a lovely friendship week where the children loved guessing who their ‘ Secret Ninja’ was and made beautiful friendship cards and friendship bracelets. Looking forward to more excitement in December.

 

October

What a fantastic 2nd and 3rd class I have this year. It is so wonderful to be back in the classroom again with that great 'learning buzz' and to see the children so happy with all of their friends. They have adapted so well to our new routines, remembering their sanitising and handwashing, keeping us all safe! Thank you boys and girls. We have been spending a lot of time learning outdoors, running every morning for five minutes. We have even done some of our Irish lessons and English lessons outdoors too! The children have really enjoyed listening to and discussing some fantastic stories such as 'The Giving Tree' which taught us some life lessons and they thought of what they could give others that doesn't cost money.

During Maths Week this year , we did some lovely activities both inside and outside the classroom. We used natural objects such as twigs and stones to make 2D shapes. We also designed a protective layer for an egg, investigating insulation. The children were given cotton wool, newspaper and tape. Thankfully, all the eggs survived being dropped from a height!

Smartie Challange

2nd and 3rd class took part in a smartie maths challenge. They were certainly delighted to use smarties for their maths lesson and eat them afterwards. They had to use their problem solving skills to see how they could link their fraction knowledge by dividing their smarties into halves, quarters etc.

 

 

Kitchen Takeover

On Monday 11th November 2nd and 3rd class took part in the Kinsale Kitchen takeover. What an incredible opportunity and experience for the children! In the morning we visited Horizon Farm to see where our local produce comes from. Following tha, we went to the Gourmet Academy at Ballinacurra House where chef David Rice demonstrated some lovely healthy recipes. He even nabbed a few assistants from our class! We then went to The Blue Haven for a nutritional talk followed by a delicious healthy lunch. Finally we ended our day with a cooking demonstration in Kinsale Community College by Michelin star chef Paul Mc Donald. Thanks so much to the Blue Haven Kinsale for organising such a memorable event. The children loved it!
