MATHS: We practised a lot with money this month. We did lots of activities that helped us learn how to add up coins fast and how to give change from one euro. We are continuing to improve our speed for adding and take away sums. We have also been doing lots of addition and subtraction sums with renaming. We are making sure that the number on top is bigger than the number on the bottom for subtraction sums.
GAEILGE: We learned lots of words in Irish associated with Christmas such as 'bronntanas', 'Dáidi na Nollag', 'reinfhia'. We learned some songs in Irish that were played at our Christmas show and we also rehearsed a play called 'Rudolf an Réinfhia' in small groups and acted it out in front of the class.
SESE: We researched and learned about Christmas in other parts of the world including Latvia, Argentina and Portugal.
ART: We did a lot of Christmas themed art. Some wonderful artwork was created by the boys and girls in second class.
