Active Club - First Meeting

On Friday afternoon the recently elected members of our Active Committee gathered in the library for the first time as a group with Donal and Shauna. There was much on the agenda to be discussed so no time was wasted. Each of the members of the commitee received their very one 'Active School' badge which they will wear while representing their classes on committee duty. The first item discussed by the team was ideas for getting the whole school involved in a team event. The idea that was decided on was a whole school relay marathon. A date will be confirmed by the team at the next meeting. The next item discussed was possibilities for a school active slogan.

February Cross Country in Griffeen Park

Gymnastics in 2nd Class

In Karen's 2nd class, this week we have started gymnastics. We started by exploring the different ways of moving while we had P.E. outdoors on Monday. We then worked in pairs to create a sequence using three different types of movement - feet only, hands and a feet and a jump to finish. 

Athletics in LETS

After our really successful Run a Mile Challenge in December we are now readty to start our Cross Country training. We will be continuing to run twice a week in Willsbrook Park with children from 3rd-6th class. Our first race will be in mid February.  

LETS Run a Mile Challenge

Today we ran our first Mile Challenge for the school year 2017/18. There were amazing performances all round with over 150 children from 3rd-6th class taking part. Every participant got a coloure coded wrist band at the finish line. All the hard work and training in the park since September has paid off as everyone thoroughly enjoyed the challenge. More athletics news to follow in term 2 when we will start cross country training!

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!
