First Days

First Days

On Friday 24th August we had our Sports Induction Day.  It was very enjoyable and we had a range of activities throughout the day.   These included gymnastics, basketball, rounders and team games.
First we did gymnastics with Ms.Vavasseur.  We went on the trampette and performed a few jumps including tuck jump, straight jump and box jump. We rotated so that every class (B, G, M, T) got a chance to try each activity.   
Next we did basketball with Jenny.  It was great to play matches with our new class mates.  Ms. Fusciardi did a team bonding exercise with us called the “Human Knot” where we had to untangle ourselves in groups while continuing to hold hands.  The first group to finish won. 
We learned a lot about the House System from Ms. Crinion and we had a really fun game of rounders on the pitch.
We made the shape of our class letter with our bodies and played a competitive House dodgeball match at the end of the morning activities. 
Overall, the day helped us to settle into the school, learn the names of our class and have fun in an active way.
Thank you to Ms. Crinion for organising this for us.
