Day 5

Our last day consisted of GAA with Gemma’s mum and cycling with Noel Feely from Roscommon  Sports Partnership.

The children also got a chance to draw their favourite sport for the local Community Games Competition.


Day 4-Sports Day

We decided to have an Annual Sports Day on day 4 of the Active Week.

In the morning we started with Drop and Do 10. Here we increased the exercises from Monday by 5 more.

For the Sports Day the highlight was taking penalties against the staff. All staff members could now become very competitive goal keepers!!.

Other activities included, the egg and potato race, races, relay, wheelbarrow races, a skipathon and we climbed 16 mountains based on the activity-How many mountains can you climb. (counting the skips for each child)


Day 3.

We met at 9.10am at the top of the road to all walk to school together for our Walk On Wednesdays. Again we wore our High Vis jackets.

Once we got to school we continued our Run a Mile with a Smile as we have been doing since October. We have our Annual 5k road race on June 11th. This running each week is really helping us to get ready for the day.



We were super lucky to have Ciara from our local gym Pulse Fitness come to do mini circuits with us. We completed the plank, shuttle runs, jumping jacks, balance positions and squat holds. Ciara has asked us all to keep practicing the above. She also spoke to us about healthy eating and the amount of sugar in foods that we eat.

Playground games-Duck Duck Goose for the Junior Room and Rounders for the Senior Class.

At 2pm we all followed Mary out to the garden with Wayne to help out with planting vegetables and flowers.




Active School Week- Day 1

Our Active school Week took place last week (April 24th-28th 2017). We had a great week filled with fun activities and even some sports we had not tried out before.

We started off Monday morning with Drop and Do 10. This included jumping jacks, lunges, burpees, squat jumps, crunches etc.

Following this we were had a visit from Gary Patterson, our county player and a club player for Michael Glaveys. He told the class some very interesting points about his diet and lifestyle when playing at this level. He took the children out to show them some important skills.

At 1pm we all took out our High Vis jackets and met the parents at the front gate. We all took off to walk to the local forest. 

The playground games included- dodgeball/bulldog. Active Homework was continued this week with our Super Trooper journals.
