Junior Infants had a very exciting day out on their school tour to Dublin Zoo. We saw lots of animals and had great fun.
As a precursor to Active Schools Week the children made the most of their first Sports’ Day since Junior Infants – the class enjoyed playing games together and snacking before our races, great fun was had by all!
Second class thoroughly enjoyed Active Schools Week with yoga and playball being favourites. In class we tried to incorporate sporting and active activities as much as possible. In English the children created games in groups that involved a hoop/beanbag or no equipment, they then wrote the procedure for how to play the game. The children then demonstrated how to play the games using bossy, clear language and the rest of the class got the opportunity to play their game! We completed an orienteering activity around the 3rd and 4th class yard which was excellent as the children really had to explore teamwork strategies.
As Gaeilge we focused on active Caitheamh Aimsire – ag dreapadh, ag imirt peile, ag sleamhnú, ag luascadh etc. It was a fantastic week!
Third Class had an amazing day at Zip It in Tibradden Wood. When we arrived, we had to get our safety harnesses on and then do some training before heading off on the different colour courses. We got to try three courses, each one higher and harder than the last. We had a super day flying through the trees, cheering on our friends and offering words of encouragement and praise to each other!
After completing three hours on the courses we had a very quick picnic before heading back to school.
It was a tiring day but we all had a fantastic time!😊
Fourth Class had a wonderful time on their school sports tour. They had the opportunity to try a wide variety of different sports from the long jump to gymnastics, relay running to basketball ! It was an action packed, fun filled day for everyone!
We have played and learned lots! We have planted broad beans and sunflowers. During Active Week we did Yoga and Playball, we were dancing and played Ultimate Frisbee!
Happy holidays Senior Infants!
This term Third Class were very active. We had a great time racing in our team colours at Sports Day and the following week enjoyed ice creams at the end of a busy Active Week.
Third Class had a great year making projects about Ancient Egypt and The Rainforest, as well as some lovely art projects.
Both 1st classes enjoyed a wonderful trip to Airfield for a Teddy Bears’ Picnic this week. We were very lucky with the weather which made for some happy children and teddies. The children got to see chickens, vintage cars, goats, calves, donkeys and the cows being milked. The class had great fun in the playground to finish off our wonderful day.
