Space Week Oct 5th-10th

 

We had a very busy week for Space Week. We started with an online "Observatory in the Classroom" with Caoimhín from Blackrock Castle Observatory. We learned a lot of information about stars, planets and the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. We wrote some excellent reports and had a great time making the many star constellations using marshmallows and toothpicks!

 Skipping

 

We love to skip. We have been keeping fit and building our stamina by practising skipping in the yard throughout the week and at lunchtime. We recently had a workshop with Mark from "SkipnRope". It was brilliant. We learned lots of new tricks and games.
