News from Ms. Byrnes’ Second Class!

Ms. Byrnes’ Second Class have done lots of interesting things.

They were making predictions for the All – Ireland final and drawing team jerseys. In Art they drew 3D hands and learnt about optical illusions. They read about Oisin and Tir na n-Og and made postcards he might have sent from there.

I really liked their class group names which are BRIGHT SPARKS, WIZZ KIDS, BRAIN BOXERS AND CLEVER CLOGS.

Rainforest Inspired Creativity in Second Class

Down in Ms. Maguire’s class, they did something quite interesting. They came up with the idea to turn their classroom into a rainforest. The children used paper to make little monkeys. Ms. Maguire used string to hang up the monkeys. They added vines as well. Ms. Maguire made a giant monkey out of art materials and put it on the door. They are also doing S.E.S.E.
