Rounders in First Class

Yvonne's First Class enjoyed playing rounders in the blue sky and sunshine today!

Each team played an excellent game, using a tennis racket to hit the ball outfield.

Look at us go!

First Class, Up and Dancing!

The First Classes took part in a Dance Session with Emily, as part of our Active School Week.  Some great dance moves by all!

Outdoor Activities in 2nd Class

Today we started learning about outdoor and adventure activities. We learned about orienteering and using a compass and control card. We worked in pairs and used a control card. We had to hunt for the shape that was on our control card and write the corresponding letter beside it. We had lots of fun doing this and are excited for the rest of our outdoor activities over the next two weeks.

Walk in the Park

Big smiles for our Walk in the Park! Yvonne's First Class really enjoyed our Walk in the Park on Friday as part of our Active Week in Lucan ETNS.

We completed 3 laps of the park as part of our sponsored walk, and enjoyed a Loop the Loop after all our hard work!

2nd Class Sports Day

2nd class had a wonderful sports day yesterday. In the morning we started our day with some games outside, including croquet, basketball and rugby. Following that we had our races. We participated in a variety of races, including egg and spoon and a dress up race. We even got the parents involved and played some games with them. We also got to play in the playground and play with the parachute. The parachute is always so much fun! Lastly, we did activity stations inside the P.E. hall. Here, we had the chance to play a range of games from bowling and hurdling to penalty shots and target throwing. We had a great day! Take a look at some of our photos from the day.
