4th class have been working hard as yard monitors in the junior yard at lunch times again this year. Every Monday 6 children are chosen as yard monitors and each pair takes charge of one area of the junior yard; Hoops and Beanbags games, Penalty shootout and Skipping. The children go out to yard 5 minutes before the bell rings and set up their area ready for the junior and senior infants to play. The 4th class children then teach the infants how to take turns, line up at each station and play games together.
Soon the 3rd class will be taking over the yard monitor duties and 4th class will be passing on the teaching skills they have learned in the past year.
