We went on our school tour to Mellowes in Athboy.
The trip was a big success. The children had a wonderful time. There was a great variety of activities for the children. Have a look at some of our pictures to see what we got up to:
There were relay races
Swings and slides
A disco and talent show
A memory tree - the children used their fingerprints to create a memory card with our school name on it. This card is hung on the memory tree for all to see.
The children also planted a seed and learned how to make compost in the greenhouse
And of course there was the very exciting bus journey to and from Mellowes:
Hobbies and pastimes
We are learning about hobbies and pastimes in room 4.
We have set up a gym in our role play corner to promote exercise and an active lifestyle.
Yesterday we went on a visit to our local leisure centre where we met Dean one of the gym instructors.
The children learned how to stretch their muscles, they played balancing games, practiced throwing and catching as well as jumping, skipping and hopping.
We also got to take a tour of the gym and saw machines such as treadmills, bikes and cross trainers.
This was a fantastic trip for the children and we are very grateful to Clondalkin leisure centre for letting us visit.

We had a special delivery of eggs from the farm on Monday the 9th of April.
This was the start of our hatching project in Scoil Mhuire.
We watched and waited for our eggs to hatch!
Finally we saw a tiny crack, and then a little chick emerged!
We now have 2 chicks in Scoil Mhuire. We named the chicks Max Jnr and Cheeky Beaky
We were very lucky in room 4 and got to hold our chicks today:
Our trip to the garden centre was a great success. The lovely staff in Newlands showed us around, we got to know the names of different flowers and plants. A highlight was seeing all the fish in their tanks!
