Today Ms. Downey’s Class had their first session with Mark, the GAA Football Coach. We will have a session each week so Wednesday will be School Tracksuit day from now on. Mark did some hand eye co-ordination games with the children and taught them some ball skills too. We all had great fun!

Mark’s GAA Club is called St. Brendan’s and it is based in Grangegorman, Dublin 7. There is coaching for boys and girls every Saturday morning. Mark will be giving the children information cards in the coming weeks.

On Pancake Tuesday Ms. Downey’s boys and girls listened to the story of The Big Pancake and they knew it wasn’t a good idea for the pancake to take a ride across the river on the pig’s nose : Yum! Yum!

toss a pancake

decorate a pancake

eat a pancake
