The two Fifth classes were very busy this term. We helped to organise Active School week! It was brilliant to see everyone in the school community enjoying outdoor activities. We had activities scheduled each day. A hoop challenge, a skipathon, yoga & mindfulness, running and a penalty shootout were in this year’s line-up. Active style homework was also assigned. We also used the outdoor classroom for some lessons. We did plenty of projects in S.E.S.E. . We also have Geography fieldtrips through the Green Schools Outdoor Learning Initiative. We were also very busy using the online platform Seesaw. This school year we uploaded projects, videos, and art to Seesaw in all subjects.
For the month of February, as part of our Active schools campaign we are going to take part in a February challenge called “Every Step Counts”. The main aim for the month is to get active. The first thing you need to do is print off the record sheet attached so that you can record the amount of steps you do each day. If you cannot record the exact number of steps that is fine just colour in the foot once you have completed your walk/run. If you miss a day then leave the foot blank. On Mondays, I will ask you to take a photo of your weekly steps & upload it to Seesaw. At the end of the month the steps from all the children & staff will be added up and the aim is that we will have walked enough kilometres to have reached a country in Europe. There is also an app called “Irish Life-My Life” which allows you to get steps for your local club-Clann na nGael. The club have already registered so if you would like to participate just log on to the app & follow the instructions to help them win prizes.(see photo below) Have lots of fun & remember every step counts🚶♀️🚶♂️ Miss P.
