We had a lovely time with our buddies from 6th Class. First of all we played our word games, then read our reading books to them, they read to us and last of all we went for a walk/run round the astro.
Congratulations to our 6th class who celebrated their Confirmation last week. I hope you all had a lovely day in the glorious sunshine!
Well done to Zoe Gordon, Orna Murphy, Lisa Kilfeather, Nessa O’Sullivan, Eva White, Áine Harte, Lauren Healy, Susannah Gilligan and Anna McDaniel who represented the school in the mini sevens finals in Collooney on Thursday 12th April. Unfortunately they lost out to Rathcormac in the semi-final.
This week we read The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl. On Friday afternoon we made stretchy crocodiles with our buddies from 6th Class.
On Friday we practised our throwing, catching and rolling skills with our buddies in 6th class.
Last week we painted trains then our buddies helped us to stick on different shapes for the wheels, funnels and engines.
On Thursday 26th October a number of children from 3rd to 6th class took part in a Try-a-Tri event an initiative run by Triathlon Ireland and Sligo Sports and Recreation at Sligo Sports Complex and Cleveragh Regional Park. The event consisted of a 50m swim, a 1,500m cycle and a run of 800m with all the children enjoying the challenge.
Our buddies came to work with us again on Friday. We showed off our rhyming, cutting, colouring and sticking skills. We also performed our rhyme about a crocodile and made them jump!
On Friday our ‘buddies’ from 6th class came to work with us for the first time. We practised our colouring, cutting and sticking skills.
Mickey Downs put all the classes through their paces, junior infants to 2nd enjoyed a variety of activities and 3rd to 6th tried circuit training.
