I thought we could start this week's news with a joke!

Why did the king leave his castle and go to the dentist?  To get his teeth crowned!

This week in Rang 2 was Castle week.

We learned some great vocabulary about the different parts of a castle such as:

Dungeon, Portcullis, Moat, Drawbridge and Turret.

We looked at life in a castle in these times and a bird’s eye view of a typical medieval castle.

We are almost finished building our castles from found materials and are very excited to finish them for next week. Thanks to our reporters Hubert and Danielle for the lovely photos.

All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey. It must be autumn! The weather is changing and the leaves are turning beautiful autumnal colours. In our art lesson we explored how trees change with the seasons. They are really lovely. Well done Rang 2!

We also focused on autumn during Gaeilge. ‘An fómhar atá ann’ is how to say ‘It is autumn’ as Gaeilge.
