Skipping Workshops

We ran skipping workshops in our school this week. All classes participated. We learned new skipping skills and improved those that we know already. We had a skipping display at the end of the day where various children showed off the new skills they had learnt to the whole school. It was great fun!

Easter Bonnets

We enjoyed an Easter bonnet parade in our school the week before the Easter Holidays. Children made Easter Bonnets at home using recycled materials. Prizes were given to children who made the best use of recycled materials and to those bonnets that showed the most creativity. Well done to all that participated. Philip Treacy watch this space!

Everyone enjoyed it, the trees are covered in white snow and the sky is a lovely light blue, earlier when the sun was coming up it made the trees look amazing.

The weather is cold a frosty out and the tempature is around -4 or -3. Snow is falling alot this year and it seems to be getting much worse as it goes on.

We are enjoy the snow very much although some people hate it.
