For Hallowe'en, the Active School Committee set up some ‘Spooky Stations’ where the children in Ms Rocca's class took part in lots of activities which had a spooky theme. The children had great fun being active in their costumes.

Over the past few weeks, we have been working on our football skills with David O'Dea. Each class enjoyed their sessions and looked forward to playing football, even in this cold weather. Here are some pictures taken during these sessions.

On the day we got our Christmas holidays, the Active School Committee went to each class to teach them a Christmas dance. The Crazy Santa Dance was such fun and got everyone moving! Look at these pictures to see the classes enjoying dancing. 

All classes completed the Active Break Every Day Challenge, as a whole school initiative, over a period of four weeks this January. These posters were displayed in each classroom. Active breaks help us stay healthy, concentrate and have fun while learning.

Active School Walkway

Our school now has an Active School Walkway. The starting point is at the main gate and the signposts continue around the yard and the pitch. This will help us to integrate physical activity into our learning.  

Yard Equipment

The children have great fun playing on the yard with our new equipment.
