This week we started cricket training with Malahide Cricket Club. We played a game called 'Continuous Cricket'. It was great fun! We discovered we have some secret cricket stars among us. Maybe you might try playing cricket over the summer? We have two more weeks of cricket on 22nd and 29th of June.
A big thank you to St. Sylvester's coaching team who are back again to help us improve our GAA skills over the next four weeks.
We had great fun exploring the strand of 'dance' for the past few weeks. We focused on creative dance as well as traditional dance. We learned well known dances such as 'Shoe the donkey', 'The siege of Ennis' and 'The Walls of Limerick'. We also learned so pop dances to The Jackson Five 'Blame it on the Boogie' and Dj Casper 'Cha Cha Slide'.
We then joined forces with the other third classes for a giant ceili in the hall to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. We had a great time.
In order to facilitate First Confession rehearsals, we have rearranged our PE day from Tuesday to Monday for the next few weeks. We will return to normal days after the confession in early February. Thank you
We have been learning the rules of uni-hoc and how to stop and pass the puc to each other. We discovered it was a bit harder than we first thought!
This month, we have had great fun learning all about athletics. We have learned about 'false starts' and what 'on your marks, get set, go' actually means. We have practised relay races using batons, had a go at throwing indoor javelins, practised our sprinting and much more.
We will start swimming lessons on Tuesday 6th September for seven weeks.
Our P.E. days are : Tuesday
Please wear full tracksuit and runners on these days.
