Sixth Class have been very active in recent weeks, having fun at the Sponsored Walk in Marlay, starting the first week of their Cycling Course. In the classroom too…painting Salvador Dali themed “Spring Birds” and performing a Jackson Five “I Want You Back” inspired drama!
A pupil from Dr Brook’s class reads her own story called “Chaos at the Zoo” to the Junior Infants – a budding author!!
We’ve been very lucky in Taney to have great coaches from Ballinteer St. John’s GAA Club to come and show us some skills this term. Fourth, fifth and sixth classes were also treated to a day of cricket skills from Leinster Cricket Club in Rathmines.
As our active school slogan says…”Don’t delay, be active today!”
On Thursday, 19th April, 272 pupils along with their parents, younger siblings, grandparents and canine companions replaced the recently-required snowboots for shades as they participated in the Fun / Sponsored Walk at Marlay Park. It was a great turnout and Ms Blain’s 1st Class was particularly impressive, with 26 children present. Such was the positive energy that it was impossible to judge best class spirit so the good news is that all of the classes are being rewarded with homework passes. Thanks so much to all of the parent and teacher volunteers who helped with registrations and ensured that everyone was kept in tow and on track along the route. The completed sponsorship card and monies can be returned to your child’s teacher by Friday, 4th May.
Junior Infants had a great time using their sound fans!
We worked in pairs!
A mix of 5th and 6th Class boys played in the final of the U13s C league on Thursday, 19th April. They were victorious in their first match against Headfort School, winning with a comprehensive 3-0, and took on Wesley College in their second outing. In a tense match, our boys in red and black beat their opposition 2-1 to earn their gold medals. A superb achievement and a fitting finish to a fantastic season!
Everyone in Fourth Class has been having great fun over the past few weeks! We have been very active with Movement Breaks, Adventure Trails and Walk for Water on Your Funky Feet! Check out some of our funky shoe designs.
Children from 2nd and 3rd Classes participated in an after school Drama Club last term. Over the course of the term the boys and girls were hard at work learning lines from the play “Dragon Days”, which they performed for parents just before the Easter break. Ms. Warren and Ms. Lawrence were so impressed by how well they could sing, dance and deliver their lines in front of such a big audience. Well done!
