Active School Week 2021



During this week, children will have opportunities to complete a wide range of active activities at school and at home. A copy of physical activity homework will be given to your child/children. Children will be asked to keep a record of the physical activity completed. A physical activity challenge will be set by a different adult each day.


Our school timetable for Active School Week 


Active School Week began on Monday 26th April. Today each class got an opportunity to try out an Obstacle course set by our fantastic Active Agents. Our second active activity for the day was cycling training by Bike Green. We finished our day with some movement breaks using the Bizzy Breaks padlet from the Irish Heart Foundation. 

Tuesday was an extra ACTIVE day. Today, children enjoyed a Jungle Body dance session with Elaine, a socially distanced skipathon, Run around Ireland laps and a walkway activity!

Just before lunchtime, we had a whole school Drop Everything and Dance session. The afternoon was filled with games and doing our laps for our Run Around Ireland whole school running initiative.Junior and Senior Infants got to try some Parachute games too!

On Thursday, we enjoyed a Fitness Zoom class with our local Coral leisure centre, Active Lines, Limbo, game stations, Run around Ireland and we even manage to squeeze in a whole school Safe Cross Code dance between the rain!

Wednesday & Thursday

We finished Active School Week 2021 in ACTIVE style! Each classroom kicked off their morning with laps which marked the end of our whole school running challenge 'Run Around Ireland'. We reached 15 destinations in four weeks. What an achievement for all the children! 

Next the Active Agents set up a Teacher's Challenge, which involved teachers running with a pretend vacination. See the instructions attached. The remainder of the morning was spend doing Athletics and Games with Darren from Monaghan Sports Partnership. We concluded the week with a Pound class with Pamela Treanor. The children got to make as much noise as they wanted using their feet, voices and wooden spoons!
