In PE, we have learned about a lot of FMS. (Fundamental movement skills) Please ask at home about these. We have learned two types of throws (overhand and underhand), kicking, catching and striking a ball with a racket. Please practice these at home as much as possible! Invest in tennis rackets or hurleys or a bat to play with! They will last for years, and give so many opportunities for play and learning important skills.
In SESE, we have learned so much about native birds, animals and trees, as well as some non-native trees. Our nature table has filled up in recent weeks! Please go on some nature walks, and use www.askaboutireland.ie to help you find out what trees we are seeing everyday! This is such a beautiful time of year to get out into the parks of Ireland!
We have been learning a lot about rules in different world religions. We have made such lovely projects to add to our 5 pillars of Islam display.
We have been running a yard soccer tournament over the last couple of months! I was delighted to see more and more of our girls getting involved recently! Keep it up girls!
I hope we all have a safe, active and fun midterm break. Enjoy!
