I love being back at school because our new classroom is in Garrymore Hall. It’s good to be back. We were off for five months and I was really excited to go back. Since our return we have painted some Autumn scenes. We have learned about some European countries for European Day of Languages. We wrote about some famous landmarks. I did Húskur in Iceland. We have all completed drawings of sugar skulls. We are starting to learn the ukulele soon. We always use hand sanitiser and stay two meters apart and hopefully stay safe.
I like being back at school. I get to see Alyssa and my friends. We are in Garrymore hall so in the morning we get to play basketball or if it’s raining at break we can play basketball inside. My Mom has to work from home so we get to see her when we get home from school. On Sunday Mayo beat Galway by 15 points. It was the biggest win in the league over Galway since 1952. Alyssa and I and some other people go to Garrymore some times after school. Hopefully Christmas does not get cancelled. Trick or Treating is cancelled but I am still dressing up as a pirate. For midterm I am baking cupcakes and my sister, brother and I are doing up our rooms.
I am happy to be back at school because I can see my friends again. As well as that, I get to practise football and soccer again. If I did not go to school I would be very dumb. My favourite subject in school is P.E. We play football and soccer for P.E. I think school is a lot better in Garrymore hall than the school because we can play football on the astroturf pitch and play basketball in the hall. The only difference is we have to sanitise our hands but other than that everything is nearly the same.
In lockdown it was very boring.
I was looking forward to my birthday in March but the day of my birthday lockdown started and there was no football, no school, no nothing!
The first week was alright but after a month or so it was not very good.
Then one day, after about four or five months things opened up including football and school.
Now there’s some more covid cases in Ireland so recently football stopped again but it’s alright, but at least we have school.
During the worst part of the lockdown we had to do Zoom classes and home school. It was ok but I prefer to be at school. Now, the senior team are playing county matches again and in Mayo’s first league match against Galway they won.
MAYO FOR SAM!
