Croke Park

Active Week got off to a wonderful start last Monday, with a visit to Croke Park. Our boys hurling team from 3rd - 6th class progressed to Croke Park this year. Children from 3rd - 6th class went to Croke Park to show their support for the team. The team played brilliantly! They showed extreme dedication and commitment to the match and to one another. Unfortunately, the boys did not win the match, but they left Croke Park smiling. They were so proud of their achievements, as are we all. Well done to all the staff who have helped with the GAA teams this year and to Derek and Donal for training the boys team.

Zumba for 6th Class

Our 6th classes had a great time last week during their last Active Week in LETs. They particularly enjoyed the Zumba class that they participated in. Fiona taught the children some Zumba moves and about the origins of Zumba. The children had a brilliant time dancing, laughing, having fun and sharing their dance moves with one another. 

Sports Day

To conclude our Active School Week, we had Sports Day on Friday. Sports Day is a great annual event that focuses on participation and fun rather than competing. This child-centred day ensures each child has lots of fun and has an enjoyable day.

We had a range of activities this year for Sports Day. Each class participated in the following events:

1) sports stations ranging from target throwing to trampolining,

2) outdoor team games such as football, basketball, tennis and croquet,

3) playground and parachute time and

Fun Day

As part of our Active School Week, we had a Fabulous Fun Day last Thursday. This Fun Day was decided upon by the students themselves. The Student Council decided on the events that were to be held on the day. We had bouncy castles, an obstacle course, use of the playground and student vs. teacher dodgeball. Take a look through the website to see the other posts about the other events that were held during Active Week. Have a look at the photos below to see how fun Fun Day really was!

Zumba

4th Class had great fun in P.E. this year. They had 4 weeks of Zumba classes with their Zumba teacher, Fiona. The children learned lots of fun moves, shared some of their own moves and danced along to some of their favourite songs. Take a look at the photos below to see how much fun they had.

Gymnastics Lessons and After-School Gymnastics

Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First Class had some exciting P.E. lessons this year. They had a gymnastics teacher, Rachel, visit them for 8 weeks to teach them a number of different gymnastics skills. The children had the opportunity to explore a range of balances and movements. They thoroughly enjoyed this, so much so that we began gymnastics as an after-school activity.

Football

Well done to all the children who participated in afterschool football this school year. Children made excellent progress in their skills, made new friends and had lots of fun. We had a wonderful team of children this year and we hope that all the children will make sure to go outside during the summer and use their skills and play some football.

Swimming

Each class, from 1st to 4th class attends 8 weeks of swimming lessons every year. The children have made great improvements in their swimming and confidence in the water this year. Well done to all the children on another great year of swimming lessons! Keep up the swimming over summer and we will begin a new term of swimming lessons in September. 

Playground

We are so lucky to have our playground for use everyday in school.

Junior and Senior Infants have the opportunity to use the playground during yard every lunch time. They follow a rota for this and the children have enjoyed playing together. They have been so good all year at playing fairly, taking turns and following the playground rules.

From 1st - 6th class, the children have a chance to attend the playground as part of their weekly P.E. Children in all classes love going to the playground!

Art in Senior Infants

We were talking about Elmer the Elephant and we made our own models.
