Ms. Gaire's First Class x
Hello everyone! Welcome to our final Class Blog of the school year. Scroll across to view the photos and click on the videos to see what we got up to during our last busy term in First Class.
We had an active term that started with football lessons with coach David. We really enjoyed the sessions over a few Monday mornings.
Recently, we took part in "Active Week." On "Run Day Monday," we walked one lap around the block in Prosperous and ran two laps around our school. On Tuesday, we had our fun-filled Sports Day. On "Workout Wednesday," we completed circuit training in the PE Hall. On "Tennis Thursday," we had a fun tennis lesson led by Lara's mammy Suzanne. On "Flashmob & Fitness Friday," we had a whole school Zumba session on the Astro Turf. Throughout the week we observed the 6th class children compete against the Staff in Novelty Races, a soccer match and a basket ball match.
A theme that we particularly enjoyed working on was the theme of "Summer." We created lovely pieces of Summer Art, we learned a Summer poem and raised money for our school by wearing summer outfits on "Sunshine & Shades Day."
We also liked working on the theme of "Transport." We created pieces of Art, learned a song called "We All Go Travelling By," and in History, we worked on Transport from the past and present.
We made fabulous cards for our special dads for Father's Day.
We had a few special occasions over the past few weeks. Darragh, Dan and Ryan, three past pupils, came to visit us. They won the U20s GAA Leinster Cup and got to The All Ireland Final. We were so excited to meet the players and see the cup! Last week, Victoria's family came to officially open the new "Cuimhne" area in our school garden. We went outside to greet Michaela and Paul and enjoyed the official opening of the gorgeous, peaceful area.
One of our favourite memories from this term was our first ever School Tour! We went to Fort Lucan Outdoor Adventureland. The journey on the bus was passed by singing songs, cheering and playing games. We had an amazing day on the water slides, playing in the playground, buying treats in the shop and having a picnic.
Last week, we took part in "Green Schools Learning Week." On "Map Monday," we explored Prosperous through Google Maps and practised giving directions. On "Throwback Tuesday," we turned off the electricity for one hour. On "Nationality Wednesday," some students made fantastic presentations to the class. Nate told us all about Namibia in South Africia, where he was born. We loved looking at the photos of many African animals that he showed us. Molly and Dan told us all about Australia. They recommended great tourist attractions and we looked at them online. Seán brought in delicious French treats for us all to enjoy. On "Meat Free Thursday," we ate lunches without meat. On "Fruit Friday," we ate lovely fruits. It was an enjoyable week.
We had such a lovely and memorable final term together. Ms. Gaire rewarded us for our great behaviour, kind actions and super progress throughout the term. We played games on the yard, enjoyed ice lollies and free play in the PE Hall and had a big party to celebrate our successful year together.
We wish you all a lovely summer break!

Sports Day 2022 will be one to remember! We had a fantastic day, between taking penalties to relay races, obstacle courses, tug-of-war, the parachute, the playground and so much more. Take a look at our photos to relive the day with us! 🏃♂️⚽️🏆☀️
Happy Father's Day to all the Amazing Dads out there from Ms Dunne's 1st Class. Have a listen to our song!
The excitement was high for First Class as they set off on their first ever school tour to Fort Lucan Adventure Centre. The day was definitely one to remember, from the double decker bus to the helter skelter and the raging river, we had a fantastic day filled with fun & laughter. Take a look at our photos to see what we got up to.
