Class 8 enjoyed a recent trip to Palace Stables Armagh. We followed a map and looked for clues. We worked in small teams and our photograph made it into the local paper. We had a great day!
In Class 8 there are 7 pupils: 3 girls. Class 8 learn in a fun, energetic and happy environment. We have a very busy and exciting timetable. This includes: swimming, horticulture, horse riding, choir, drumming and running the school café.
Meet the girls and boys in our class. In our class we have 9 children, 3 boys and 6 girls.
We are very proud to say that one of our class members Dearbhail, recently won 3 medals (2 gold and 1 silver) for her equestrian skills in the Special Olympics held in LA this year.
We have had a very busy start to this new academic year both inside and outside of school.
So far this term we have taken part in the whole school Ecumenical service and Macmillen coffee morning.
Some of the outside of school activities we have been involved in are:
Class 8 visited the Peatland Park to practice for their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award. They learnt how to use a Trangia Stove for outside camping as well as how to put a tent up. They developed their map reading skills and worked towards their expedition challenge, walking over 3 miles. Everyone worked well as part of a team and nobody give up, despite having some very sore feet. They will go on two more trips this year. We have also been preparing for the ‘Everybody Active 2020 Schools Dancefest 2016 Hip Hop Competition’.
