green-schools-primary-water-forum-2017-18-1Templebreedy were fortunate enough to be allocated a place on this years Green Schools Water Forum in Cork. There were many activities included in the day including a presentation by Irish Water and many experiments exploring the water theme.
In January the junior and senior infants classroom was transformed into a doctor’s surgery. The children explored the roles of the receptionist, nurse, patient and doctor. The children made their own stethoscopes and x-ray pictures in art. We explored safety strategies for crossing the road and learnt the safe cross code. In Gaeilge we learnt all about Teidí bocht and in Religion the children listened to stories about Jesus healing the sick.

As part of working towards our active flag, we are completing a number of different active initiatives. We now have a very eager Active School Committee in place which will be introduced soon. We have been working hard on our Run Around Europe challenge, with the halfway progress reaching 4794km in three weeks. We started our 12 days of Fitmas challenge yesterday, where the children will complete a different exercise each day at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm and 2pm. If you would like to continue the challenge at home then follow the daily plan above and complete on the hour, every hour. MERRY FITMAS EVERYONE!!!!
Today Emma from Maxi Zoo came to speak to the children about responsible pet care. She brought her pet rabbit Fudge.
