Fourth Class Tour to the National Sports Campus and Aquatic Centre

posted in: Fourth Class News | 0

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!

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!

Both third classes went to Dún Laoghaire for their annual summer tour.  We had an absolutely fantastic day and we were blessed with sunny weather.  We discovered so many sea creatures like anemones, crabs, lugworms and much more when rock-pooling.  We even came across an escaped budgie on the way down to the beach!  We also had an amazing time kayaking and swimming in the harbour.  The perfect day to reward a great year for both classes!

First Class enjoyed an amazing trip up the Dublin mountains to Pine Forest Art Centre.

The day began with a lovely walk through the mountains where we crossed the county border into Wicklow and on a visit to an enchanted fairy forest!  We also made art creations and produced some fantastic work as the photographs attest!
