Investigating Hedgerows

We’ve been taking advantage of the lovely May weather by investigating the different types of plants, trees, insects and animals we can find in our local hedgerows.

Hearing Heart Beats

While learning about sound and how sound travels, 3rd and 4th class went one step further and made our own stethoscopes. We had great fun brainstorming, creating and testing out our designs.

Working towards our Active School Flag

 

We submitted our Active Flag Application Form last week. We hope a representative from the Active Schools team will visit our school during this term. We are very optimistic of achieving the Active School Flag.  

The results of the non-competitive running initiative the children were involved in for the last three weeks, each break time have been calculated. 

Junior Infants ran 56 km to Clogherhead

Senior Infants ran 37 km to The Narnia Trail in Kilbroney Forest Park

1st Class ran 60 km to Dun na rí Forest Park

2nd Class ran 85 km to Tayto Park

3rd/4th Class ran 188 km to Lough Key Forest Park

5th/6th Class ran 174 km to Glendalough

Everyone had great fun and there was great rivalry between classes to see who could run the furthest distance. Congratulations to 3rd and 4th Class for running the furthest a grand total of 188 kilometres.

The Active Flag Committee hope that every is adding their suggests for activities during Active School Week to the Suggest Box in the Halla at the Active School Flag display. All suggestions welcomed and considered. We are very excited about Active School Week at the end of June.
