September in Fourth Class

Enjoying some sunny weather on our school playground, getting to know our new classmates.

Junior Infants go exploring

Every Thursday Yvonne and Shauna's Junior Infants have PE together. We practice the games we learn in PE. It's a lot of fun to go the Senior yards and to run around on the astroturf. 

Tree Day

Last Thursday, 5th of October, was Tree Day. Second class took a trip to Willsbrook Park to participate in a nature walk. We noticed all of the autumn colours and thankfully it was a dry and sunny afternoon. We learned some facts about trees, discussed why trees are important to us, identified the trees in our local environment and collected leaves and other autumn items such as conkers, helicopters and beech nuts. We used the leaves that we collected to identify what tree they belong to.

Second Class Playground

In Karen's 2nd class, we have been enjoying our trips to the playground. We have great fun playing together with our friends. 

Staff Relay

We had 10 teachers from LETS participate in the Staff Relay 5km race in the Phoenix Park this year. For some, it was their first 5km race but definitely won't be their last. It was a warm evening so tough running conditions but that didn't stop our runners! Well done to everyone invloved!

Daily Yard Activities

In LETNS we are lucky to have a playground that all the children have access to. The infants use the play ground at break times and all other classses have allocated slots during the school week. We also have large games on our yards such as Pinball, Mazes and Connect 4. Fifth and sixth classes use the basketball hoops at lunch time and first, second, third and fourth classes can skip or use chunky ground chalk to draw. Classes rotate through the activities each week and all get a chance to play on the astro turf pitches too. 

Bike Rack

One of the main projects of the Student Council work on this year was fund raising for a new sheltered bike rack. This will encourage children to cycle or bring their scooters to school. We had held a crazy hair day in term 1 and there will be additional fund raising initiatives next year tso that construction of the bike rack can commence. 

5th Class School Tour

5th Class had a great time on their school tour in Malahide. The class got the opportunity to tour Malahide Castle and gardens. As well as this the children went kayaking and on a boat, here they played some water acitivites and games. The children all enjoyed the day. Take a look at the photos from the day below.

6th Class School Tour

6th class had a brilliant day on their last school tour. They went to Baltinglass where they participated in the following outdoor activities: 1) archery, 2) rock climbing, 3) kayaking, 4) abseiling, 5) orienteering and 6) kayaking. All children had a great time and the weather was beautiful also! Take a look at the photos below to see some of the activities from the tour.

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.
