Our children get two active playground breaks per day. The children are encouraged to do their walking while they’re talking.
For our running initiative, we have decided to ” Run to School Tour Fun”. This involves every class running the distance to their school tour. Each class has a chart on their door marking their progress! It is great fun and there is a great sense of achievement! Here are 5th class on their first and last laps!
Every Friday, we bring the whole school together to take part in an Active Assembly. This is great fun!
Congratulations to Adam Kiely from 3rd class who won the competition with his slogan.
Get up, Get Wise and Exercise!
For June, every class will get some Active Homework to do! The time will depend on what class your child is in.
Teachers Vs Students….
