Summertime in school means lots of time for outdoor fun and of course, the one day we had all been waiting for- our first communion.
June is always one of favourite months in school and active week is always the highlight. He had a great time all week. Monday was run day funday- we walked the block and ran laps of the school- we definitely got our steps in that day. On Tuesday we had an all day sports day! Wednesday we had circuits in the hall as well as watching the teachers beat the students in the annual races. On Thursday we were so lucky to have Suzanne from the tennis club coach us in the tennis courts. On Friday, we had a whole school Zumba lesson and watched some more students vs teacher action in soccer and basketball.
1st and 2nd classes went to Fort Lucan for their school tour this year. It was the first tour for second class since junior infants and the first tour ever for first class. It was even the first time some of us went on a bus!! We had a great day from start to finish. The weather was perfect and we had great fun in the playground, on the go-karts and especially on the water slides!! After lots of treats it was time to go home and we were so tired most of us fell asleep on the bus home. We can’t wait for our next tour!
Ms Cox's class had lots of fun this week practicing their Irish dancing. Check out their performance here, along with some pictures of them on Lá glas
Happy Halloween everybody!!
We had a great day in school before our midterm break! Check us out below!
This week we were so lucky to get to celebrate sports day in the sun. We had a fun filled day and were wrecked by hometime.
We began our day with some orienteering- we hadn't done much of this before year so we were all learning but we picked it up very quickly! Ms O' Connor was very impressed.
Next, we went into the school hall to take part in some circuits. We've been working on this all year so it was great to see the improvement in our times and in our technique! Mam or Dad- you might get the children to show you their lunges, push up's, burpees and sit ups! They're flying!
We moved on to the obstacle course after little break and had great fun crawling, jumping, balancing and hurdling our way around the course.
The competition started then at the racing station- we did some relay racing, egg and pool, wheelbarrow, three legged and balancing races. Such fun!!
After lunch we tried some desk drumming and yoga in the classroom.
We finished the day then on the astro where we played limbo and parachute games- many of the children said this was their highlight!
Hope you enjoy looking at us in action!!
