Today was our last day of activities. We were outside again today for gymnastics. We had great fun trying out our sequences, rolls & balances.
We have had a fantastic week this week. Huge thank you to our Active Schools Committee, all our teachers and SNAs for all their help and organisation. Most importantly thank you to all the boys (& Sonas girls) for taking part in the fun activities.
The sun was shining today and we were showing off our dance moves on the Astro turf. We played musical statues and musical chairs and impressed our teachers with our dance moves. We also kept up our laps on the yard. Senior infants started tennis today also. Our Wednesday was full of activity!!!!
Today we returned to the yard to run laps and we had to find shapes in our scavenger hunt.
The rain held off today and we took to the school yard to run laps. We hope to run laps every day that will add up to 50km the distance from Nenagh to Limerick.
We had relays with the baton, long jumps on the yard & obstacle courses on the Astro turf. It stayed dry all day so we could get active outside. We also got active homework to complete at home.
Our first day of Active Schools Week was a wet one, but we took to the GP room to play Queenie-I-O, The Bean Game & Parachute games.
On Friday we danced our way into the weekend in the GP room!!! Some classes took a trip to the playground. We had a brilliant Active Week & we are already looking forward the Active Week 2018! Thanks to Ms Shanahan & Mr O Meara for setting up all the events this week & thank you to the Active School Committee for helping with all the equipment.
Today we took some shade from the sun and went to the GP room for Gymnastics. The hall was set up with stations and we all tried out rolls, balances, animal crawls and different ways to move our bodies.
Today for Active Week we went orienteering. We had to find pictures of animals and mark them on our cards. They were hidden all over the school grounds, but we were clever enough to find them all!
Tuesday we got active with the Games strand. We played games like "Duck, Duck, Goose" & parachute games. The sun was shining again today adding to our fun!
