School Tour - Claremorris

Claremorris was the location of our school tour this year. Our first stop was Commons Clay Cafe for an art activity. We got a plate, each, to paint with our favourite colours and designs. They look fantastic. They have to be put into a special hot oven for 12 hours and we will receive them next week- we can't wait to show everyone!!! We tucked into a delicious hot lunch, knowing we would need plenty of energy for our next activity.


















Next, we went to McMahon Park for a walk around Clare Lake and Land of the Giants.  We were very excited to be greeted by the ducks! Clare and Morris are two giants and we had to look our for clues that they lived here. We found lots...we are great detectives!!! We had a few challenges to complete along the way too.








 






We had some time in the playground to round off our day out. We had great fun with our friends.

Skip Hop

Lee from Skip Hop visited our school recently to do a skipping workshop with us.  We took part in many skipping activities - some that were easy and some that were quite tricky!! He was very impressed at how we had improved since his visit last year.

In the afternoon, we took part in and watched a demonstration of the skipping activities. The older classes amazed us with what they could do.  We are going to practise our skipping at home and on the yard.
