Second Class Midterm Update

Fáilte ar ais agus Oíche Samhna Shona do gach éinne!


I would like to welcome all the parents and pupils of 2nd class back to school for hopefully another amazing year at Kilcornan N.S.


The term kicked off with the enchanting world of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" by Roald Dahl. Students delve into the chocolatey adventures of Charlie Bucket, exploring themes of imagination and the joys of reading. Activities such as creating their own chocolate bar and creating their own Charlie and the Chocolate Factory characters.


As the season transitions from summer to autumn, second class embarked on a mini beast hunt, where they explored the fascinating world of insects and small creatures. This activity not only connected students with nature but also enhanced their observation and research skills. The class was even able to create their own mini beasts!


Math Week takes center stage during this term. Students participated in a variety of math-related activities, puzzles, and challenges that  problem-solving abilities and mathematical understanding. It's a week where numbers become fun and engaging! The highlight of the week was completing a 2-d shape hunt around the school grounds.


Weve started other activities in the classroom such as Music Generations. The class has loved all the musical activities that the two teachers have done in the classroom and look forward to engaging with music in a fun way for the remainder of the year with them.


The term concludes with the highlight of Autumn – Halloween! Second class immersed themselves in the spirit of this holiday by engaging in creative projects that spanned all subjects like discovering the history and origins of Halloween, making spooky crafts, and dressing up in their favorite costumes on the final day of the term. The classroom was adorned with spooky decorations,and the students enjoyed creating Halloween stories, and the annual costume parade.


Have a lovely midterm and enjoy the break!
