FIRST LEGO League Junior

Today we started building for FIRST LEGO League Junior. Our big showcase event will take place in the Radisson Blu on Tuesday 4th April 2017. 

1st and 2nd class have been working very hard with Ms. Scott building the WeDo models so that we would learn about gears, axles, bricks, plates and beams. We will be now using our own imaginations to build our own designs. 

This year the theme is Creature Craze and we have to pick an animal or animals that live in the same habitat as the honey bee. We then have to build either the animal or its habitat with one moving robotic part. We also have to research our animal for our Show Me Poster. Mr. Kelly and Mr. Campbell are coming to talk to us about the animals they work with every day after the mid term break. We have lots of questions for them and we are looking forward to their visit.

Operation Transformation 10@10

Last week’s Operation Transformation was so successful that we ran it again today and plan to make it a regular exercise programme. It only takes ten minutes but it is helping us stay fit and healthy and best of all we have great fun! 

Here is a film of our event from Week 1:

Operation Transformation 10@10

Today at 10am we all trooped out to the school basketball court. Across the country schools and clubs were taking part in the Operation Transformation 10@10 and Clontuskert was amongst them.

5th and 6th class worked yesterday to make teams and decided what each of the ten stations would be. After one minute of activity we moved onto the next station with our team. We had a brilliant time and it was so successful that we have decided to run the 10@10 again next Friday. Check out a film of the event here:
