Spring has Sprung in 2nd Class

Spring has finally arrived in 2nd Class and we are so excited!

We celebrated the first day of this new season by creating St. Brigid’s crosses and learning all about the saint. We then re-wrote the story of St. Brigid’s Cloak in our own words and made comics (see image below) that are on display on “Our Altar”. What do you think??

As Valentine’s Day falls in the month of February, our teacher, Ms Hickey surprised us by writing different reasons why we are loved on our classroom door. Each day there was a different reason. We love reading them each day, they really make us smile.

They look delicious, like the ‘Love Heart’ sweets, don’t you think?

We are really enjoying our art this year. We celebrated the Chinese New Year last month, learning lots about China. We also created lovely plaques for the walls. Did you know that this year is the year of the rat?

The Year of the Rat…2020

Our Class Mascot, Rodney the Shark, has been having a great time, spending his weekends with the boys and girls from second class. Each pupil takes a turn having Rodney at home for a weekend and writes about their adventures with him. Some boys and girls have even taken some photos with Rodney and have pasted them alongside their adventures. This is where Rodney spends his time in our classroom. He feels very at home in his classroom habitat. He certainly does not feel like a fish out of water 😉

To make our classroom feel a little more ‘spring-like’ we created beautiful cherry-blossoms using our hand prints and sugar paper. They are our teacher’s favourite tree! She has hung them all around our classroom and in the entrance hall. Do you like them?
