Active Week : Wednesday

Today saw  pupils from Siofra’s class acting as sports leaders! They organised a fundamentals skills circuit for our junior and senior infant pupils. In addition to this, we welcomed Club Ash to our school. They demonstrated how to play an inclusive sport floorball, to our pupils from second class to sixth class. Children then got to play floorball for themselves! A massive thank you to Deirdre and Club Ash for supporting our pupils today.

Active Week: Tuesday, Sports Day

The highlight of our Active Week took place on Tuesday 11th of June. This year our sports day consisted of an infant and a senior sports day. All classes participated in stations based on a variety of sporting skills and disciplines. We had a lot of support from local sports clubs and the school community and could have not have ran our sports day without their support. We would like to thank: Donaghmore Ashbourne GAA club; Ashbourne Baseball Club; Killegland AFC; Anne O Meara, Meath Cricket Officer and our parent helpers,who supported us by running stations . Our sports day was followed by sprint finals for children from first class to sixth class.
Some pupils remarked to their teachers:
“It was the best sports day ever…” and “Can we have sports day every day?!” Well done to all staff and pupils for their fantastic effort!

May in Katie’s Third Class

May was a very busy month in Katie’s third class. We have spent a lot of time preparing for our end of year performance – learning poems, songs and creating a drama.

We learned about Andy Warhol during art lessons and created our own pop art using bright colours and popular icons from the modern world.

Our history lessons took us back to the time of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. We discovered the improvements these women made to the lives of patients in their care and how they cared for soldiers on the front line during the Crimean War. Each pupil created a fact file based on one of these women.
