Active School’s Week🎾πŸ₯… πŸ€πŸβš½οΈ3rd-6th May 2022

As part of our work towards getting an Active Flag for our school Mrs Gillogley and Edel organised a week of sporting activities for all classes.

These included tennis, soccer, basketball, dancing, orienteering, skipping activities and playground games.

Thanks to Mr Higgins and the 5th class pupils for looking after the playground games and soccer, to Edel for the skipping activities, to Mr O Meara for the basketball, Ms Kerins for Sean Nos Dancing.

We all really enjoyed being active and children kept a diary of the activities we did in school and at home.

The Parachute is always a big hit with Senior Infants. This was part of games organised by the 5th class pupils and Mr Higgins
A tennis coach from Sligo Sports & Recreation Partnership came to teach us some skills. This was new for most people but Robyn who is a member of Sligo tennis club was a great help in demonstrating the new skills 🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾

Summer is here!!! Our theme this month in Aistear is the campsite. We have a lovely teepee in our role-playing area where we can relax and read.

Our bbq and picnic table are perfect for when we all get hungry!!

We even practised toasting marshmallows on the campfire but we must always do this with an adult.

Tall Towers Challenge πŸ—ΌπŸ—ΌπŸ—ΌπŸ—ΌπŸ—ΌπŸ—Ό

The children chose a material to make their tower out of from a selection of plastic cups , wooden blocks, lego and magsnaps.

The challenge was to build a tower that could stand alone and possibly hold something on top also.

Here are a selection of the constructions we made from our chosen materials.
