2022 is off to a great Start!

Wait until you hear the exciting news this month in 2nd Class!!!
2022 is off to a great Start!

January has been another fantastic month. We have been busy since day one with lots of fun activities. We started the year as we meant to go on with some New Year Resolutions. We discussed ways that we could challenge ourselves this year and things that we loved to do last year that we could continue doing into the New Year. It’s always a great class discussion to have as it gives the pupils time to reflect on their achievements to date and also time to set goals for the future. The children created a lovely display that any class would be proud of. We continued to work hard with our English writing and have come on leaps and bounds in our Cursive Handwriting and our Creative writing. It’s been great to see how all the hard work at the beginning of the year is paying off.

Art was a lot of fun this month and we created lots of amazing artwork. We discussed using different colours to create depth in our creations. We learned that adding white to a colour will cause it to go to a lighter shade. We applied this technique to our Polar Pictures, and they came out amazing. Great work to everyone!!!

The next piece of news could be one of the most exciting pieces of news that I will write for this entire year. This has created HUGE excitement with staff and pupils. This is saving the best for last. 2nd Class started rugby this month!!! Mr. Flood is teaching them all the skills and drills and our season is off to a fantastic start. We’ve been playing games like beat the ball and doing Drills like the L drill and Tip Rugby. We’ve really come a long way already and I’m looking forward to working with all the Irish hopefuls in the coming month.

Keep an eye on our Social Media for information on the Open Day that’s coming up on February 11th. It’s going to be a great day!!!
