We are currently working on recording and interpreting data in maths. The girls are really enjoying making their own pictograms and barcharts. You could make a family barchart on your favourite take aways/tv shows/board games. We have assigned the girls a task on Managhigh that they can enjoy too.
We are currently working on schools in the past and in January we will be learning about toys and life in the past. We are sending home a survey with your children to complete with their grandparents, aunt, uncle or a neighbour about life years ago. We would love also a photo of your child and their grandparents to display in the classroom. If you have any toys school or home items we would love to see them too.

Maths - 2D Shapes
This month in Maths we will be looking at 2D shapes. The girls had fun working at different 2D shape stations. We are lucky to have so many resources in our classroom to explore and help us understand more about this topic.
Have a look around your home and see what shapes you can find. What shape is the face of your clock/ your bathroom mirror/ your windows/ doors/ etc? Happy Shape Hunting!

GAA has started back with Colm from Parnells. The girls had great fun showing off their skills.
The Five Senses
Today all of 2nd class went on a sensory walk in the playground. They were excellent at using their 4 senses( we left taste out). Some girls heard airplanes, an alarm, dogs barking, etc. Some girls felt the smooth metal, the rough bark on the trees. It was really wonderful and the girls loved working in groups sharing their knowledge.
Thanks to Debbie our wonderful Librarian who explained how to use the library and she even let the girls scan out their own book. We will visit the library every Monday to read some new books and change our book.
The Aistear room
Today we went to the Aistear room with all the 2nd class girls. It was super fun. The theme in the Aistear room was my home which tied in nicely with our family topic.
