Soccer

The boys and girls love to play soccer at breaktime and in their PE lesson. This year we enlisted the help of coach Dwayne Wilson. Dwayne taught each class for 1 hour over a period of ten weeks. The children learned top tips on passing, shooting and the general rules of the game.

Go Ireland Go!!

As part of the Junior Classroom’s preparation for Euro 2012, the children have been learning all the flags of the teams competing in the football competition. Take a look at their flags!

As well as learning the flags of the countries in Euro 2012, the children had to predict which team they think would win Euro 2012.

Here is a breakdown of their predictions so hopefully we will have a winner in our Class Euro 2012  Competition!!

11 children predicted Ireland would win, 2 children predicted that Germany would win, 2 children predicted that Spain would win , 1 child predicted that England would win, 1 child predicted Denmark would win, 1 child predicted Greece would win and 1 child predicted Italy would win.

 We made our own cups with “green, white and gold” streamers on them to support the Irish Team!

Go Ireland Go!!! 

We’re really hoping that Ireland wins Euro 2012!
