The girls in 2nd Class in Room 9 have been very busy over the past few weeks. We are all settling into 2nd class really well and having lots of fun together.
This is the first piece of writing we completed in our new class. We wrote about our summer holidays and drew a picture to go with it. We are very proud of our neat handwriting and we love to see it displayed on our class wow wall.
Every few weeks we get to pick one piece of work that we are very proud of and we display it on our wow wall.
We all got creative in art and drew our own self-portraits. We coloured them using soft pastels. We are all unique in our class and we all look very different.
We explored the famous artist Frida Kahlo and got some inspiration from her self-portraits.
One sunny afternoon in September, we all took a break from the classroom and went off exploring around our school grounds. We worked in pairs and discovered lots of signs of Autumn around our school.
We got an extra surprise when we found our new school fairy garden.
We had lots of painting fun creating these colour wheel umbrellas for art. We learnt about primary, secondary & territory colours and ways in which colours can be mixed together to make new colours.
We only used the three primary colours and white for our umbrellas so we had to mix these colours in different ways to make the other colours we needed. It took some time and patience to get the correct colour but it was lots of fun! We drew ourself holding the umbrella and some girls even drew their pet with them. 🐶
Happy Halloween from all in Room 9
The girls had so much fun dressing up for Halloween before our Mid-Term break.
We went on a walk all around our school.
We also did some fun maths that involved tallying the colour of cars that passed our school gate. It was very interesting! Black & silver cars were the most popular!
Our prayer space for the month of November that we completed with one of our student teachers.
The girls in 2nd class will be preparing for the sacrament of Reconciliation in the coming weeks.
We celebrated Science Week by completing lots of different science experiments with our student teachers.
We had so much fun doing the "Skittles Experiment" and we tried our best to make raisins dance! 🙂
We even made our very own volcanoes!
We had our very first 'Show & Tell' in our class last week. We all brought in one item from home that is special to us & then we told our class all about it. We all really enjoyed this activity & we are already planning on doing it again before the school year is over!
We had a variety of different items from very special teddies to light up books & trophies.
We have had some great fun in the lead up to Christmas in Room 9. We each got a star to decorate for our class tree on our classroom door as,
'We shine bright in Room 9!'
Each star is unique & different, just like everyone in our class.
The girls were busy learning about Advent and how we can all prepare for Christmas in many different ways. We made advent promises and displayed them in our prayer space.
Our theme for this month was Christmas so we completed lots of different activities in various subjects based on Christmas. We wrote letters to Daidí na Nollag, painted reindeers, made penguins on collage background and created our very own Christmas snow globes.
We had a very special visitor just before our Christmas holidays! 🎅
We all wore our Christmas jumpers & got to watch the Panto in school. We had the best day!
