Sixth Class finished off STEM week by getting together with their Junior Infant Buddies. We helped our Buddies practice their directions and programming skills using our Bee-Bots. We even finished off by having a competition to see who could programme their Bee-Bots to land exactly in the correct spot.
Both 5th and 6th class have been taking part in the Marathon Kids Daily Mile Challenge. We run a mile every day which has really helped improve our fitness and concentration levels in school. This week our students in each class received t-shirts and other merch to mark their amazing efforts. Well done to all!
It was an exciting day to day in 1st and 2nd classes, we got all our new tables and chairs and had to help carry the old ones out of the classroom, luckily 6th Class came to help with the desks!
We also joined with our Junior Infant buddies on National Tree Day to teach them about our Taney Trees and to complete leaf rubbings.
For National Tree Day (October 6th) this year, Sixth Class spent some time studying and appreciating the trees we have on our school grounds. We looked at the different features and characteristics of our Rowan, Whitebeam, Silver-birch, Oak and Hawthorn trees. We even collaborated to create and perform poems about each tree. Well done to both classes!
We’ve been lucky enough in Sixth Class to have a tag rugby coach in for the first term. We’ve really enjoyed learning new ball handling and rugby skills. Thank you to Andrew for coaching us!
Gymnastics has been our area of focus this term in PE. We have loved working with Mark who brought along lots of interesting pieces of equipment to work with.
6th Class have been loving getting to know their Junior Infant buddies over the last couple of weeks. We have been doing lots of activities like board games, reading and 6th Class even taught the infants some PE games that they created.
