Athletics Ireland- The Daily Mile
We have ran 210 laps of the school yard which is a marathon (42.2km).We are onto our second marathon now. Our target is 420 laps. We concentrate and focus really well on our work after we do our laps. We practice running between 5-15 minutes or some days we practice our sprinting. It's our favourite part of the day and what we are most grateful for at the end of the day!!
It's Science Week this week (9th-13th November). We have started our Intel Mini Scientist projects. We watched Electrified at the Explorium- very interesting!!
We are learning lots of new GAA skills in P.E with Coach Michael.
