A mile a day…

Our class are taking part in a programme called the daily mile. We run, walk or jog every morning for 15 minutes.  As well as keeping us fit and healthy, studies show that this programme promotes concentration, determination and resilience. It also reduces anxiety and stress as well as improving relationships within the class. We are the first class in the school to start the programme but we hope that everyone will be taking part over the coming months. For more information on all the benefits of this programme, check out www.thedailymile.co.uk.

4th Class Trip to the Library

Published by under 3rd & 4th Class

Today 4th class visited Athlone Library to listen to a talk given by children’s author and illustrator, Alan Nolan. Alan was born in Dublin and he has written and illustrated many books and comics for children and grown-ups, including Fintan’s Fifteen, Conor’s Caveman and the Murder Can Be Fatal series.

Alan told 4th class all about his life and what it is like to be an author and illustrator of children’s books. He discussed his books, how he writes and illustrates them and his plans for future books. He also gave the children a demonstration on how to draw one of his most popular characters from his books. 4th class were encouraged to draw their own interpretation of the character and they created some brilliant drawings. 

Everyone really enjoyed the talk and demonstration and Alan even signed the classes pictures before they left!!

We would like to say a big thank you to Alan Nolan and Athlone Library for organising the talk.

3rd Class Trip

Published by under 3rd & 4th Class

Today 3rd class paid a visit to Meehambee Megalithic Tomb and to Nure wakehouse or ‘Caoinne Marbh’. We were very lucky with the weather!. There was a lovely pathway to the tomb and we could smell the wild garlic. We also passed signs which told us all about the flora, fauna and birds to be found in Drum. Mr. Anton Lennon and Mr. Jimmy Moore told us about the local history. We thought the wakehouse was creepy! We really enjoyed our visit and we would love to go back again. Have a look at our photos…
