Fáilte go Rang a hAon (1)
You are very welcome to our class page. We have all settled into First Class really well. We have been working really hard for Mr. Glynn and are really looking forward to all of the fun that First Class is going to bring.
- Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday for September and October. On these days we need to wear our school tracksuit and runners. On the other days we must wear our full school uniform.
- The first assembly of the school year will take place on September 30th at 8:30am. Due to COVID, we have not had the usual type of assembly in the past couple of years. From this year, the junior and senior assemblies will be separate. The junior assembly will take place in the morning and the senior one at the end of the school day. The whole-school assembly song for September is ‘Lean on Me’. We have been practicing this song in class. The children might like to practice at home also using the following YouTube link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nx_D0VTHBag
PE: Games – Tennis:
On September 9th we started our PE sessions with our tennis coach, Stephen. We have been exploring the forehand and backhand move and we have been practicing our ball handling skills. We will continue with our tennis lessons every Friday for September and October. Here are a few photographs of us taking part in our tennis lessons.
PE: Outdoor and Adventure:
For our Wednesday PE session, we have been exploring the ‘Outdoor and Adventure’ strand. We have been completing orienteering activities, exploring directional language and have been learning to follow control cards. Here are some photographs of us working in small groups taking part in some orienteering activities.
We have been working on the number strand since returning to school. We have been exploring the addition combinations to make up some larger, two-digit numbers. We have been investigating ways of combining and partitioning sets. Here we are working in pairs to explore different ways of making 11. We looked at what combinations that we could put into the circles to make sure that we would still have 11.
