Our Active Week is coming up soon (10th – 14th June 2019) so here is the Active School dance video for you to practice at home to get ready for our whole school dance!
On Friday Mr. Whelan was teaching 2nd class lots of hurling skills.
The other classes got to use their dodging skills in games of dodge ball.
It was a super end to a busy Active Week!!
On Thursday the pupils took part in lots more fun activities. Some pupils dod some HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) with Ms. Doherty. Some other classes were practicing running drills with Ms. Daniels and others were doing yoga with Mr. Mooney.
The classes were also busy in their own rooms doing 10@10 activities and yoga too.
In the afternoon we all came together in the yard to do a school dance and then we had a dance party.
It was a great day!!
On Wednesday the pupils were taking part in a football skills challenge as well as practicing their cricket skills.
Senior pupils were doing football skills with Room 15. They were practicing skills in penalty taking, headers, dribbling, volleys and passing. It was great fun and it was great to have encouragement from the pupils from Room 15.
Other classes were learning and practicing their cricket skills with Ronnie from Cricket Leinster. It was another great active day!!
On Tuesday all of the pupils were taking part in sports day. We went to Kenilworth Park and took part in lots of different races. We did sprints, relays, potato and spoon races and hopping races. Well done to all the teachers that were involved.
We also took part in Mr. Coghlan’s obstacle course. It was great fun!
When we got back to school some pupils played padel tennis, others practices their school dance and others played badminton.
We were very active on Tuesday!
On Monday all of the pupils were busy with Ultimate Frisbee and Fit4school activities.
Oscar came into the school and taught us ultimate Frisbee lessons. It was something new to learn and it was great fun.
Other pupils were doing different skills in the fit4school programme. They were learning skills in jumping, throwing, catching, skipping and agility. Pupils from Room 15 were helping and encouraging all the classes with these activities. Well done.
In the classroom pupils were doing 10@10 activities and also doing some dance rehearsal getting ready for Thursday’s whole school dance!
As part of out Active Week preparations we are learning different dances.
Room 11 (2nd class) went to Room 15 (5th class) and asked for some help with learning some moves.
It was great fun teaching and learning from each other. Everybody is looking forward to doing it again!
All of the pupils and teachers went to the yard to dance this week.
We all learned the Beyoncé dance and performed it together. Then we danced to some of our favourite tunes!
It was so much fun.
Today we were all playing dodgeball.
It was great fun and we loved playing so many games with our friends.
