6th Class Tour to Carlingford Adventure Centre

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!

6th Class, The Chicks

posted in: Sixth Class News | 0

It’s that time of year again!  This year we were lucky to have 10 chicks between both sixth classes!  The were very well cared for and went on a tour of the school to meet all of the children.  We are also delighted that their new home is just across the road in Airfield!

 

Irish PE!

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!

Active Week

There was lots of physical activity throughout the school for Active School Week which took place from 27th to 31st May 2019.

There were fitness classes with Luke where we were put through our paces with lots of exercises, challenges, games and music. Later in the week, two coaches from Bar Monkey provided each class with impressive demonstrations on a high bar and taught us floor movements as well as bar challenges.

All classes engaged in Active Homework and recorded their physical activity in their Active School Diaries. There were plenty of other activities taking place both in our classrooms and outdoors. Some of these included: Go Noodle, Mindfulness Activities, Camel Cup Soccer Tournament, Swimming, Active School Songs/Raps, Active Science Experiments, Cricket, Athletics, Running Challenges and much much more.

The week concluded with our annual Sports Day where there was plenty of fun doing relays, obstacle courses, three-legged races and straight races. Thank you to all of the parents and teachers who helped to organise and coordinate the event.

Check out the Active School Notice Board for more posters, pictures and samples of work.

Active Irish

6th class have been combining their Irish skills with P.E. at the moment. Firstly each group was given a fitness circuit in Irish. They had to figure out what to do and what equipment they needed. Then each group completed their own circuit as well as having a go on everyone else’s! Some groups also added in an extra “sixth class” challenge! The children then got the opportunity to teach the Junior Infants how to do each circuit and they completed them together!

Cricket Season in full swing

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.
