Fota school tour

Infants to second class went on their school tour the Monday of the Summer holidays. We travelled all the way to Fota Wildlife Park. What a scorcher it was!  We put on loads of sun cream and drank plenty of water.

We had a talk about the animals while we walked around the Wildlife Park.  Did you know that hippos use the mud as a suncream?? We didn’t!

We went into the woods and hunted for insects with pooters- it was great fun. We used sticks to shake them from the trees and sucked them into the container. We were starving for our lunch then! All too soon, it was time to leave.  Some of us said it was the best school tour ever!

Sports fun day

We had our sports day the day before the holidays. It was a really hot day!  We had to come inside for our breaks instead of going out!

All the classes had sprints, egg and spoon race, two-legged race and wheelbarrow races.  It was great fun!

Later on there was a soccer tournament for each class, basketball games and stations.

Mrs Foskin hired a Five in One activity centre from First Class Castles.

Each class got a turn on it.  Our parents came to watch and brought sun chairs and rugs.  The older classes had a penalty shoot-out, which was great fun and won by Cillian. There are lots more photos on Class Dojo for parents to see!

Ice Cream day!

We had a great day on Monday 18th June when we had our annual ice-cream day in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland. Each child brought in 2 euro for their slice and it was wolfed down greedily! We had music and balloons and the break lasted an hour! No one complained! Thanks to Ms Brennan for organising the day.

Here are some photos of us as we ate our ice cream. Mrs Foskin had a hard time snapping before it was all gone!
Here are fifth class enjoying the day.
Third and fourth class enjoying the sunshine!Sixth class girls nonchalantly eating their ice cream.
