On Tuesday 12th May, we hosted Science Day. We invited our parents to come and see some of the experiments that we have done in class.
We used the school netbooks to play Kahoot in class. You can play at home too! Follow this link to play our Ancient Egypt quiz.
We solved two mysteries via Skype this week! On Thursday, we had a Skype call with our buddies from Rhode Island. We had to guess what animal they were thinking of! On Friday, we watched our final clue from our mystery class and decided that they must be from Pennsylvania, U.S.A!
We are exchanging short video messages with another class in a mystery location. We are recording clues and must try to guess which country the other class is from. Click on the Skype and Twitter page for more!
We learned lots about the U.S. during our latest Skype call with 2nd Grade in Narrangansett, Rhode Island. We shared our questions with each other on Twitter so that we could prepare our answers. Here are the questions!
We found the answers very interesting. Our Skype buddies even sang us a Spanish song!
We learned how to make a maze game for the Hour of Code! And we were not the only ones coding! See the Scratch page for pictures of Barack Obama and the Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, being taught how to code....by kids!!!
We love playing Stop the Clock in Second Class Red. Try to beat your best time at home!
We interviewed Dr. Joseph Roche, an Irish scientist who is starting his training in the hope that he will go to live on Mars!
We made timelines showing some important events in the history of space exploration. Click on this link to see our interactive timeline and to see if you can answer the quiz questions correctly!
