Active Week 2016 Day #1

Active Week is here again and it kicked off with a bang!!

On Monday all of the pupils were busy learning and practicing new skills. The bad weather didn’t dampen our spirits!

2nd and 3rd classes were in the hall practicing their tennis skills with Niamh. They were how to hold the racket and connect with the ball. They were trying to rally the ball back and forth with Niamh. It was great fun!

4th, 5th and 6th classes were learning the brand new skills of Lacrosse. Aisling from Lacrosse Ireland came into school and taught us all about this sport. We were practicing throwing and catching the ball using the special lacrosse sticks. It was tricky but we enjoyed learning new skills.

Big thanks to Niamh and Aisling for coming in and helping us during Active Week!

5th class school tour

Room 14  & 15 went with the 6th classes to Lilliput Adventure Centre on their school tour.

We set off from school on the buses very early and travelled to Westmeath. We were all very excited to get there and start our activities.

We got to do EIGHT different games and activities like rock climbing, group games, capture the flag activity, kayaking, bog hopping, orienteering and archery.

It was an amazing day!

Room 14 – learning about electricity

Room 14 were learning all about electricity and making a variety of circuits like parallel, simple and series circuits using batteries, wires and bulbs. We also used switches with our circuits. It was lots of fun!
