Report Writing Hurricane Ophelia
by Matthew Grehan
Today our main topic is Hurricane Ophelia, where three people died, one in Louth, one in Waterford and
one in Tipperary. A whole gym roof flew off into someone's garden and a plank of wood stuck through
the wall in a house and landed in the place where the man's head was ten seconds before.
Over 66,000 people have no water and 300,000 people have no electricity. The roof in Cork's stadium
fell down on the seats. Loads of branches and trees fell on the roads, leaving some roads completely

Famous Author Visits 2nd Class as part of Book Week 2017
Jim Smith is a funny guy. He created the big-nosed
character Barry Loser for our entertainment!
He explained to the boys in second how he comes up
with ideas and he showed them how he illustrates.
It was enthralling listening to a real live author
of a book we happened to be reading!
Thank you Mrs. Casey and Mrs. O'Dea for organising this event.

The Accident by Jamie Maguire
One day I went to the press, where there was a whole bag of
roasted peanuts. By the way this was in my Granny and Grandad's
house. I hid under the bed and savaged the bag. About an hour
later my Dad came. Don, don, don!! He found the packet empty.
I got banned from lego for two days! (I said it was an accident!)

Acrostic Autumn Poems
Autumn there is nothing like it
Unusual things happening in Autumn
Trees their leaves fall down
Unbelievably cold sometimes
Monster pumpkins and vampires to be
Nice or they might bite you!

Maths Week 2016
We had fun counting and estimating how many steps and trees
there are in the school, measuring the yard in metres, playing
Maths games with decks of cards, like Odd Snap and more.
We are reading THE BFG and made giant ears for fun!
Roald Dahl Day
We went to The Lexicon Library in Dún Laoghaire on Tuesday
to celebrate what would have been his 100th birthday!
Some of his amazing rhymes and a section of his story
The Twits were enacted.
An amazing musician had made up some songs in
praise of the genius.
RTÉ's News2Day crew happened to be there
and some of the boys ended up on the national news!
We finished reading The Magic Finger together and now we're
reading The BFG! What an incredibly imaginative author Roald Dahl
was. Thank you Mr. Dahl for such gifts.
Report by Samuel Lambertini
I went to The Lexicon Library. We went on the DART. Oh I
forgot to tell you why and how I was there. I was there
because it was Roald Dahl's 100th birthday celebration. We
listened to people reading The Twits, Red Riding Hood and
a man sang a song all about Roald Dahl's stories. Oh also I
am famous because people were pointing the camera at me!
We had a picnic along the way!
Topic - Roald Dahl
Roald Dahl Day is on Tuesday and we have been reading and thoroughly
enjoying his story The Magic Finger and Dirty Beasts, which is full of
imaginative, hilarious rhymes about animals. We wrote stories about
what happened one day when we got mad and saw red, when
our magic fingers started tingling.... hilarious! Stories to follow.....
Quentin Blake is an inspiring illustrator and his art has taught us a thing or two
this week about drawing! There is a class of budding artists to be found in 2nd!
My Magic Finger
(Based on Roald Dahl's The Magic Finger)
The day seemed to be like any other day of the school year. But it turned
out to be a little bit different.
It all started when the school bell rang.
'John, stand up and spell frog'.
'You're a little brat'.
'I am not!'
Just then I felt a tingle at the tip of my finger, a burst of lightening shot out.
My teacher began to grow warts then she started to croake.
What happened next I don't want to explain. Okay then....
She began to hop around. The children burst out laughing.
My teacher, who's name was Mrs. Flinkaflop, began to grow a huge
mouth. In an instant she was a frog. The principal called The Exterminator,
he took her away to a pond and that was the last I ever heard of Mrs. Flinkaflop.
