An Margadh Bia - Dráma

Rinneamar dráma beag den scéal ón leabhar Bun Go Barr, nuair a chuaigh an chlann go dtí an margadh bia. Bhí a lán stallaí difriúla ann agus bhí an chlann ag siopadóireacht don dinnéar. Cliceáil ar an ghriangraf atá thíos chun pictiúrí den dráma a fheiceáil.

Duathlon Training

5th class have spent the last 5 weeks training with Triathlon Ireland as part of a pilot project. We have been very lucky to have been chosen as a school to complete this project. The children have learned how to mount their bicycles properly after the line and how to dismount before the line. On Monday 12th October, at approxiamately 2:15pm, 5th class pupils will take part in a duathlon event, where all participants will receive a certificate and medal upon completion. We hope that as many spectators as possible will come and watch this event. It will be a weather dependent event. Click on the photo below to see a slideshow of pictures from the training sessions.

Duathlon

Pupils from 5th class have been very lucky to be chosen to partake in a Pilot Project which introduces duathlon training to schools. The aim of the project is to get more children interested and involved in a wide variety of sports. Anna from Triathalon Ireland joined us on Monday for the first of six sessions which involves the development of cycling and running skills. All 5th class pupils will take part in a duathlon competition against each other at the end of the 6 weeks.

Lego Creations

We were very fortunate to get the loan of a Lego Creation set. We worked in pairs using the programme on the laptop to create a variety of creations including a roaring lion, snapping crocodile, boat at sea, kicking legs, flapping bird and a drumming monkey. It was awesome to work as part of a team and we really enjoyed playing around with the sound effects and the speed of the motor!
