2nd Class: 15th June 2020

Greetings everyone from our ‘2nd Class Hub’,

NewsFlash!! We are entering the final 2 weeks of our suggested activities. Next week, we have some fun planned for the children so… watch this space! 🙂

Please know, we are genuinely so thankful for the continued efforts of all the “Home Schoolers” and equally as impressed by the work still being completed by the children. They really are “little troopers”!

Below, you can find the ‘Guideline of Work’ you are certainly used to by now. Any message and photos of work may be sent to us via secondclasswork@scoil-bhride.com.

Our ‘June Gallery’ has really taken off, so keep snapping and sending in your smiles! We are loving them!

Sending our own virtual smiles back to the children, 🙂

Ms. Lanigan, Ms. Fogarty, Ms. Mc Mahon, Ms. Martin, Mrs. Troy, Mrs. Kelly, Ms. Keyes

Suggested Timetable

Virtual Tour

This week, we are taking you on a very exciting trip to… Dublin Zoo! 🙂 Here you will see animals such as; Burmese Pythons, Chinese Striped Neck Turtles, Green Tree Pythons, Green Crested Lizards, Panther Chameleons, West African Crocodiles, Meerkats, Snow Leopards and many, many more! Have a nice trip. 😉


We need your help! Poor little Koala has no name. 🙁 We need to name him, just like they do in Dublin Zoo. So 2nd class… ‘Thinking Caps’ on and send your name suggestions to your teacher. All names will be considered and ‘The Big Name Reveal’ will be next week!

Lots of you are having great fun with the Lego challenge. We have added some of your Lego photos to the “Fun at Home” Gallery on the Second Class page. Did you see your creation?
