Recently, we have been working really hard with the other Senior Infants in Room 2 and Room 3 putting together our Christmas show ‘A Snowman at Sunset’. Yesterday, lots of our families and friends came to see our show! It was so special. We loved being snowflakes, clouds, winter-y children, Santa, reindeer and narrators!
Be Active ASAP Club had a very busy first term. We were working alongside students from Larkin Community College. The Larkin students taught us many new skills and we had a lot of fun. During term 1 we focused on games and gymnastics. Some of the new skills we learned were:
- throwing and catching large and small balls.
- dribbling the ball
- hurling and hockey
- a pencil roll
- a sausage roll
- a forward roll
- how to travel and move in different ways (run, jog, skip, hop, jump, etc)
- moving in different directions
- moving at different heights and speeds
We are looking forward to starting back in February when we will be focusing on learning some new dance skills.
