We love to dance! We use Go Noodle in our classroom. We love to follow the dance steps and try to keep up with all the moves.
We also have ‘Lunchtime Listening’. At lunch time we put on music and dance!

We have been focusing on creative dancing in PE over the last few weeks, transferring our talents and skills from our frequent GoNoodling in the classroom. At the start we pretended to have Magic Dust bouncing on various body parts, from our toes to our heads, and created individual movement pieces for 8 beats. Then we joined forces and made collaborative movement pieces in pairs and in groups, both mirroring each other and using completely contrasting moves. After that we experimented with a Space Bubble around us and practiced moving in different ways like running, skipping, hopping, walking, turning, jumping and floorwork. We then introduced different ‘flavourings’ to the main ‘ingredients’ of dance by changing direction, speed, levels, shapes and body parts. We love creating fun dances in pairs and with our friends every week, even though it’s thirsty work!
All four 3rd classes have been partaking in GAA lessons with Larissa each week this term. Today, some children had the opportunity to represent their school in a local GAA blitz!
Well done to all who took part! St. Molaga’s 3rd class students played brilliantly against 3rd class children from local schools.
It was great to see such good sportsmanship from all! Maith sibh!
If any parents are interested in sending their children for additional GAA coaching, O’Dwyers GAA club are always looking for new members!
Here are some pictures of our day!
