Sports Week 2020

Sports Week 2020

As you know, we aren’t able to have a Sports Day this year. But fear not, we will have a Sports Week instead!

Each day you will receive a new challenge from your teacher. Give each one a try and don’t forget to take a few photos and send them in too!

As well as this, we have another challenge for you…! 

Do you have what it takes to complete the RETNS to 5k Challenge this week?
As part of Sports Week, we are challenging you and your family to walk, run, hop, skip or cycle 5 kilometres over the week! That means it’s only 1 kilometre a day! Can you complete the challenge?
Don’t forget to take photos and send them to your teacher!

4th Class drumming in the hall with Sarah G!

Last week, Sarah G came in to school to give a drumming / exercise workshop from 1st – 6th class. The name of the workshop is Generation Pound! It involves using drumsticks and moving to music and instruction. The children really enjoyed it!

For Junior and Senior Infants, Sarah G took both classes for a Zumba lesson in the hall!

What a great way to get active! Well done everyone and thank you Sarah!

4th Class make Soup from our Vegetable Garden

This week 4th class made a wonderful vegetable soup using some of their vegetables harvested from their bed in our side garden.

We had carrots, beetroot, onions and parsnips that we took from our bed last week and made a delicious soup, all with the help of our staff chef, Anne!

The children had a great time washing, peeling and chopping the vegetables. Afterwards, we had a mini-soup party! See below for a slideshow of our pictures!
