Recipe for Salt Dough Easter Eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
Stir together all three ingredients until a dough forms. Kneading the dough a couple times can help make it smoother.
Bake at 250F for 2 hours.
Once the shapes are adequately baked, dried and then thoroughly cooled, it’s painting time. Allow the paint to thoroughly dry. Use paint pens to add polka dots or lines of decorations to the eggs.
Make an Easter card for your family. Lots of ideas on Pinterest. Be creative!
Enjoy a walk in your local area (within a 2km radius of your home) with members of your family and remember to stay safe and use social distancing. While walking identify, explore and discuss aspects of some natural features in the local environment.
(Plants, rocks, sand, soil, sea and streams are all natural)
Hope you and your families all have a lovely Easter. Stay safe and looking forward to seeing your lovely smiling faces very soon.
Take care .
Hello Everyone in Second Class!!
I’m missing you and looking forward to seeing you all soon. I have been into school most days to check the building …but it is very lonely without all of you!
Remember to be good for your Mammy and Daddy and try to say one kind thing to every person in your house everyday – kindness is the best way to ‘grow’ smiles in the Spring!
Bye for now.
Love from, Mrs Gallagher.

Maths 2nd Class
- Mental Maths:Week 27
- Cool Patterns:
Patterns are everywhere – some of them simple like the sequence of a traffic light and some of them are really difficult like the swirls on a snail’s shell.
Your job is to make a pattern using any medium you want. You could knit a scarf in 2 different colours or you could build a tower using Lego with different patterned levels. You could even write a long sequence of numbers that follow a pattern. Be inventive and try and think of something someone else might not do.
Try out as many of these exercises outside (keeping social distance!) that you can and tell your teacher which ones you’ve done.
- Cycle your bike for 10 minutes
- Go for a walk with an adult – stay within 2km of your home.
- Ride your scooter for 10 minutes
- Draw your own hopscotch with chalk and play
- Throw a ball against a wall and catch
- Create your own obstacle course and run for 5 minutes
