Yesterday we went to see a Panto. We went to see Jack and the beanstalk.They sang lots of songs.The giant was big and cool.The funny part was when we saw Jack's mum's underpants. My favourite song was let it go. The whole school went. My favourite part was when Jack's mum was in the kitchen singing a song. My favourite character was Jill. We had a great day.
Santa came to the school on Monday. I got a selection box and a candy cane.He asked
me what I wanted for Christmas. He was so nice.We got a photo with him
I had a great day the end
Last Wednesday all children from 3rd to 6th went to the County Cross Country Championships in Thurles. There was almost 3,000 children running in Thurles on that day. We competed in the extra small schools category. There was individual and team races. It was our first time at the championships and we did very well. Our third and fourth class girls team were placed third out of 26 teams. Abbie placed 5th overall and the twins Eryn and Aoife were 16th and 18th respectfully. Everyone tried their best and everyone finished their races. It was an enjoyable day and we are already looking forward to next year.
We had a WSE-MLL on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 16th, 17th and 18th of September. Our inspector was Carmel O Doherty. It was a fairly pleasant experience and the children loved giving their views on the school. We received our Oral Report on Monday 22nd September and it was positive. We are awaiting our written report at the moment.
Yesterday was our sports day. There were four teams: Brilliant Blues, Gangster Greens, Radiant Reds and Lightning Yellows. There were a lot of games to play: Tag rugby, obstacle course, water relay, the egg and spoon race, the 3 legged race and penalty shootout. My favourite one was the clothes relay.
We started off with a beanbag relay. You had to try to balance the beanbag on your head to the end and back. Our team came 3rd. Then we did the egg and spoon race but we used a potato instead of an egg. We also did a sack race, a 3 legged race, a clothes relay, a water relay, a jigsaw relay and different races. Our team came first in the 3 legged race. We did throwing. I threw it the furthest. It was fun. Then we got ice pops and oranges. The most important thing was tag rugby! My team got 3 trys. It was the best thing ever!
We had our sports day yesterday. I liked the tag rugby. We used bibs as tags. We won 3:0. It was so fun. The 3 legged race was fun too. The balloon race was so fun too. Then we had penalty shootout, I was in my bare feet and I scored 4 goals! During the clothes relay I had to wear a Limerick jersey. It was wrong. I hate Limerick!! It was really a fun day.
On Thursday last we went on our school tour. We went to the Let's Go School Tour Camp in Delta Sports Dome In Limerick. It was a great day. We got to do bungee trampoline, zorbing, Air Mountain, Human Table Football (see pic), Spider Tower, wobbly ladder, Olympic handball and cup stacking. We all thought that the cup stacking was boring but everything else was great. Zorbing was our favourite. We were tired after the camp but went shopping all the same in the Crescent shopping centre. We ate in KFC and "shopped til we dropped." We were home in school at 6pm. We wrote reviews of the day in school and all of us gave the trip a high rating.
On Saturday it was my communion. In the church there were lots of people. We got a lot of photos. We got like 500 photos. When mass started we stood up and sang happy in the presence of the lord. Then I said a prayer and a prayer of the faithful. I gave Miss O Brien and Sister Caramel flowers. I got to my house last. When I went in I saw everyone from school sitting on the stairs. They all said where were you? I said at the church . We played pass the parcel and we had food. Then we had the cake. Then I went go karting. I didn’t crash once in half an hour.
On the 27th of may I went to Dublin for the Art Texaco awards. First I got up at 8 o'clock in the morning, we dropped my little sister to school and my mom and I went to the train station in Limerick to go to Dublin. We met my grandma there and went on the train. We were in the train for about 15 minutes and then we took another train. That train took 2 hours and then we were in Dublin. We went to the Royal Hospital where the awards were. We stood beside our art work and got our picture taken. The president was there and he was looking at our work and was talking to us. Then we had to sit down to be called up to the stage and get our picture taken. After that there was food and drinks in a room where we got our prize. I won a special merit award and got art supplies. We went walking outside in the gardens with my mom, grandma and uncle. It was a really good day. We took two trains to get back to Limerick and then I went home.
