Today David Collins and Tadhg Haran came to visit our class along with our PE teacher Katie.
They showed us the cup they won in the Leinster Hurling final.
Well done lads, we are really proud of you.
Some of us already play hurling or camogie with Liam Mellows club.
The rest of us would love to try!

Today at PE we did some gymnastics. Teacher did the very lively warm up time first of all with us so that we won't get hurt or won't be stiff tomorrow.
We did pencil rolls and forward rolls. Some of us are very good at this, and some of us need a little more practice.
We are combining our monthly theme of "space" with our PE.
We played two wonderful space games today.
Our first game was called Earth and Moon and is played like "Ships Decks and Lifeboats".
We had to use our rockets to take off from the moon or Earth, we had to be astronauts on the Earth, in space and on the moon, we had to greet aliens, avoid asteroids and be in the right place at the right time every time.
The next game we played was Volcanoes on Venus and Craters on the moon. The boys had the volcanoes and the girls had the craters. Each group had to turn over as many of the other teams markers as they could. This games is rather like saucers and domes which we have played before.
We love these space games.
To improve our games skills we practised dribbling the bouncy balls. We tried dribbling with our writing hands, with our other hand and with both. We are good, but there is still room for improvement.
We played a great game of "What Time is it Mrs. Witch/Mr.Wizard".
It is like "What Time is it Mr. Wolf?" but it feels more like a Halloween game.
When the time is called we have to jump the right number of jumps, and when the witch/wizard calls "dinner time" we have to run back to the start before we are caught.We also played mines. When Katie called a colour we all had to gather at that colour before she counted to 5. When Katie called "pumpkin" we all had to gather at a cone before Katie counted to 5. Anyone not at a colour or a pumpkin before the number 5 was out for one go. We really like these Halloween games.
