Dundrum Castle visit

Primary Two had a great outing to Dundrum Castle on Wednesday 11th April 2018.  They got to dress up in medieval clothing, see real weapons and were treated to a wonderful archery display by our guide.  Mark was extremely informative and helped make the experience a thorough delight.  The children were a credit to themselves and you their parents.  I hope you enjoy the slideshow below from our visit.

Congratulations to our Mathletics certificates for Silver and Gold this month!

Potato Heads

A great big thank-you to all our family members who helped make the potato heads.  We really enjoyed looking at your book characters. They were all fabulous and very innovative.  You all deserve a great big hug from your child.  Thank-you again!  Winners received their free book on Thursday before the Book Fair went.  In my class the three winners were Katie-Anne McNally, Regan Ross and Eliza Lahey.  Well done again to all the entries.frown

3D shapes

Look at our great shape models.  Can you see what they are?  The penguin at the end is made from a cone shape with a cylinder head.  It also has a cylinder for a nose. These shapes all have curved faces.cheeky

We have been investigating floating and sinking in our play.

Can you predict which ice-cube will melt the fastest? 

We placed an ice-cube in three different places around our classroom; on the floor, on a shelf, on the windowsill.  The ice cube went from a solid to a liquid to a vapour, disappearing completely.

As part of our Maths week in school, our class got to play with the IZAK9 block sets.  This can be quite tricky.  First we looked at the 2D shapes that the blocks made and their patterns. Then we had to put the numbers one to nine in order. Not as easy as you think as they were all mixed up and you had to get the right background as well as the right number.  This took a lot of thinking time and team work by each group to get it right.  In the end of course, we solved the puzzle.frown

Experiment time

Mrs Peters helped us experiment with making our very own bubble mixture.  She showed us the ingredients told us the recipe required to make a good solution for blowing bubbles.  We compared our mixture to the big bought mixture to see which one was better.

As well as creating our own mixture we also created our very own bubble wands.  We tried to invent new shapes for our bubbles but we were unsuccessful.

Never mind we had great fun testing out both mixtures outside after.  The bought solution was probably better but our mixture did work well too. 

We discovered that all bubbles are round.

We had great fun making our hedgehogs by recycling the Autumn leaves that we had collected.  To make the spikes we then added in our sycamore seeds. They made a great display for our classroom window.no

Cross curricular learning in Primary Two

Our children learn to develop through many forms of media.  Here are some examples of how their thinking skills are applied throughout the curriculum.

Flight investigations

At the end of the topic we tested our paper planes to see if they were any good.  Then we compared them to the natural sycamore seeds that we had collected on our Autumn walk around the school grounds.

We checked for distance by launching them off the bridge. We then checked for ground lift by running across the field to help with take off.  It was hard to get any thrust, the drag from the wind kept the distances short.

The sycamore seeds flew better as the were able to use the uplift from the wind to go further.
