This week fifth and sixth classes paired up with junior and senior infants as part of our reading buddy system. Children from older classes became reading buddies to children from younger classes and each child read a book to their reading buddy. We are looking forward to doing this once a week for the school year. Well done to everybody involved. We are already looking forward to next week!!!
Fifth and Sixth classes have been using our school walkway daily and we decided to set ourselves a challenge to run to Poland. After only 2 weeks we have already reached London! This is a distance of 597km or approximately 3000 laps around the school!!
