field trip:life in the school yard

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 24th September 2014

on the 5th of September we had a fieldtrip in the schoolyard. There were four teams. The team captains gave everyone a job. Some people had to type dictionary work, what we found or fieldwork five and others had to design a map of the school yard, or a concrete model and some had to take pictures and print them off. On Thursday(5th) sir gave the captains instruments (pooters etc.) for their teams. Once everybody had an instrument, we had to go outside and look for insects. when we came in we gave back the instruments and sat down. On the day when we had to vote. team 3 were the winners.

Rugby with Ray

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 18th September 2014

We had our first rugby lesson on the 15th of September and we have it every Monday for six weeks.
We first had to do some running around and we had to catch the people without the ball and then
you had to drop the ball and run as fast as you can so the new person with the ball will not catch
you, We enjoyed the rugby.
