Second Class Sponsored Walk

Last Thursday we took part in our annual sponsored walk!! Like many things this year, COVID restrictions played their part, but as always our girls were unfazed! We split into two groups with Mrs Dermody and Miss Byrne and Ella Rose was our experienced guide! She knows the castle well, and under her guidance we […]

Persuasive Writing!

Second class had a little fun with their English writing this week! After generating as much vocabulary, phrases and writing features that they thought they would need, the girls worked in pairs to create a toy advertisement! We are going to use these to persuade each other that our toy is the Best Buy 🤩

Busy Bees 🐝

Second class have had a very busy couple of weeks! We have built houses from recycled materials, planted wildflowers for Biodiversity,  started dancing with Lisa, and enjoyed classes in the sunshine ☀️🌻🌈

To show all of our learning, we created paper aeroplane superheroes […]

Ooblek and Skittles 😍

We discovered it could be both a liquid and a solid (as well as creating a great mess) We also completed a taste test, examining how blocking our sense of sight […]

Marshmallow Houses 😄

To start our Science week, second class completed a number of investigations including “Baling Soda Balloons” and “Bouncing Raisins” which involved just baking soda and vinegar! Each girl then had to tackle a number of construction challenges using only spaghetti and marshmallows 👷🏼‍♀️🏘 It involved a lot of trial and error and sticky hands but […]
