posted in: Sixth Class News | 0

This year 6th class have had the opportunity to go to a range of interesting and new places for their school tours.  And they certainly ended it with a bang!!

Both classes arrived in school at 7:45 to head to Carlingford Adventure Centre!  After a brief drive the children were greeted in the adventure centre and had a beautiful scenic (uphill) walk to “the forest”!  The children spent the day there completing a range of activities, axe throwing, rock climbing and laser combat!  The weather was beautiful and the activities and instructors were brilliant.  What a great way to end the year!

Second class had a wonderful trip to Greenan Farm in Wicklow.  We had loads of fun playing games with wheelbarrows and learnt about the history of the farm.  We saw loads of farm animals and even got to feed a few of them too.  The best part was all the fun we had in the maze, which was very tricky to find our way out!

This year, the two fourth classes went to the Aquatic Centre and the Sports Arena on the school tour.

The children spent the first half of the day exploring the water slides, lazy river and numerous pool facilities. After a short break they were split into two groups and taught by a professional Olympian how to carry out different moves and skills on a trampoline.

They then carried out different balancing and strength activites such as walking across narrow surfaces and hanging on to a high bar for an extended period of time.

The children also watched some of the junior Irish team train which was incredible and very inspiring.

Every child came home with good reports and exhausted from their busy day. It was a brilliant way to end a fantastic year.

5th class had great fun recently having a bake off!  We used lots of maths skills to measure our ingredients but the best part was getting to taste everything afterwards!

Budding Authors

In Ms. Hanbidge’s fifth class the children have been working hard to write Irish books over the last little while.  We were very excited to head down to Mrs. Wilson’s senior infants to read our stories to them.  They were excellent listeners and knew so many great Gaeilge words already!
