Welcome to Second class in Pelletstown Educate Together National School. We have 23 students in our class and our teacher’s name is Susan. Our class name is Spideog which means Robin in English.
This year we are moving on from the Aistear curriculum framework and introducing Genius Hour. We will put together projects of our choice which will combine our interests and introduce research into our work. Our first Genius Hour theme is Europe and we are excited and motivated to learn more about each country of choice. The themes of Genius Hour will be based around the students’ interests and the second class school curriculum.
For the last couple of years we have been delighted to have Antoinette from Castleknock School of Music working with our Senior Infants every week. This year, Second Class will be improving their musical abilities as Antoinette will be returning this September to work with us.
In January 2019, we will introduce swimming lessons for our Second Classes. This will include water safety lessons and will give the students an opportunity to learn a lifelong skill.
