Yesterday was St Patrick’s Day. We are at St Patrick’s school so yesterday was our feast day. We celebrated by going to Mass and then we played some a special activities.
After church we came back to school and we had our morning tea. Then we went into our groups and we played outside activities.
All of our teachers had different activities for us to play. With Sister Evalesi we threw bean bags over cones and then we threw bean bags into a hoola hoop. Our partners held the hoola hoops up high so getting the bean bags into them was a bit of a challenge.
Miss Craig had the potato race and two different relay races. It was difficult keeping the potato in the spoon as we ran around the cones. After that we did the relay races. They got harder and harder so we had to concentrate really hard.
Mrs Twomey had throwing tennis balls into a bucket and throwing frizbees into a bucket. This was also difficult so we had to aim and focus on throwing the tennis ball, and frizbee, into the bucket.
With Miss Chao we played Rob the Nest Game. It was important to be a team player and run fast. At the end the team that had the most balls (pretend eggs) was the winner.
Mrs Dines had the Train Game. We had to hold the hoola hoop and go from side to side while running around the bag. Then we picked up bag, get into it and jump. We had a fun morning playing sports activities.
After lunch we did Art and Craft activities. These were fun too. St Patrick’s Day was a great day at our school!
