Active Home Week April 27th-May 3rd 2020.

All  our families in Cloonakilla N.S. school  participated in the “Active Home Week” challenge.

The aim of this challenge was to get our recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day. We asked the children to find four different ways of being active every day, adding up to 60 minutes of activity each day and to record their activities in their Active Home Week Challenge Chart.

Watch this space as the different classes share their experiences in photos and diary form!

Our Fifth Classes were very active this week!

Our  Second  Classes  have been very active during the school closure. During active schools week they perfected their running techniques by watching videos and then practising the skills taught. The children have been running outside and some children have even been running on treadmills. The children have completed physical activity challenges every day – eg. How many jumping jacks can you do in a minute? They have also created and completed their own obstacle courses. Other children have been busy on bouncing on trampolines and on pogo sticks. Lots of children have been dancing too!

Our Junior Infant Classes were also very active! Here are some of them in action!

Cross Country Running

My Experience at Cross Country

In October, I went to Summerhill to compete in a cross country competition. We all got the bus to Summerhill. When we arrived to Summerhill N.S we got our bags and Mr.Finneran showed us where to put our bags. After we put our bags down everyone started to warm up and get ready to compete against Summerhill N.S. First of all 3rd and 4th class girls competed then 3rd and 4th class boys, then 5th and 6th class girls, then 5th and 6th class boys. I competed against Rebecca , Emily , Leah , Hannah, Emma , Sophie , Sophie , Maryanne , Orla, Mandisa and Sìobhan . I came 6th. I was very happy with my placing. I am so glad I went. I really enjoyed my day at Summerhill N.S!
