Bobby the Pineapple created by Dr. Brook’s 4th Class.
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.
There was huge excitement at school this week when 5 chicks hatched in both 6th clases! These 10 feathery and chirpy little birds were taken around the school to visit all the classrooms. Everyone fell in love with them!!
Dr. Brook’s 4th Class have been studying the Romans and making lots of interesting models, including a working aquaduct!
Fourth Class joined Sixth Class to try out a variety of Irish physical activity stations. Sixth Class worked hard to design their stations and write clear instructions in Irish. They carefully explained each station ‘as Gaeilge’ to the Fourth Class groups and provided demonstrations for them too! Everyone had great fun!
Over the past two weeks, Ms Kiersey’s 4th class have been learning about Native Americans.
To help them get a better insight into the life of a Native American, they made their own Tipi (Also known as Teepee) using natural objects and some even used flowers and crushed plants to design the outside.
They discovered facts about Sitting Bull, the Powhatan tribe and the history of Dream catchers which they also made in Art.
The children have also begun to design their own totem poles.
Taney Cricket started with training before Easter. We had a great take up this year with 36 boys and girls participating from 6th Class.
The 4th Class entered the Cricket Leinster Schools competition for the first time and played Matches against Willow Park, St Mary’s and CUS. They were also invited to play in a Cricket Leinster cricket blitz in Terenure Cricket Club and three 4th class teams travelled on the day.
We played in the 6th Class Schools Leprechaun Cup softball and hardball competitions and competed really well and all the children got to play for Taney Parish Primary School in a competitive game.
Training will continue in Marlay Park every Wednesday for the Summer Term.
Dr. Brook’s 4th class have been busy working with fabric and fibre and the results are beautiful!
