Congratulations to our Eve on receiving her 25 Volunteer t shirt at Erris Park run. Eve is the first junior parkrunner in Erris to receive this award. When she is not volunteering, Eve is busy running, having completed 63 runs in total to date! An amazing achievement! Eve is pictured with Erris Parkrun director Padraig Brogan. If you fancy a fun, sociable feel good event that will raise your heart rate, join Eve, her sister Lucy and her mum at Cross lake every Saturday @ 9:30am. Happy hearts!
The Daily Mile initiative is still up and running. On rainy days, however, running/exercise takes place within the classroom, so as to avoid unnecessary illnesses.
Each class is currently undertaking the ‘Active break Every Day challenge’ for the month of February. Both classrooms are making wonderful efforts to incorporate a running, dance and exercise break into each day. Check out www.gonoodle.com or ‘Brain breaks’ on Youtube to get an idea of what we do to wake up our bodies and minds! A
For one week in March (TBC) ,each child will track their own physical activity, using a special chart. The aim of this activity is to encourage children to accumulate at least 60 mins of moderate to vigourous intensity physical activity daily. I ask you to please encourage/join your child in this exercise and sign chart when week is complete.
Anyone interested in helping out with supervising a skipping challenge,
please let me know.
We are excited about our commitment to incorporate multiple exercise breaks into our daily routines. We have always been very good at doing exercise breaks to reinvigorate our bodies and minds but for the month of February, we aim to get 3 varied exercise breaks into our day. If you fancy trying out some of our dance breaks, check out the following example of brain breaks by the Learning Station. Plenty of fun promised!something all the family can do together!
Just a few little snaps from our very successful Wacky walk. Well done to everyone who completed the 5 km circuit, some in fancy dress! Thank you to everybody who supported the event and our wonderful enthusiastic fundraising committee who organised it all.
I hope now that you have all had a taste of the beautiful Cross lake loop, you might be inspired to join the Parkrun which takes place every Saturday morning at 9.30am.
What a busy week we have all had! Well done to every pupil who participated to the best of their ability, throughout all of the various activities, organised for Active week 2018. A massive thank you to all the parents who got involved, be it helping out or participating. We really appreciate your support and the children loved watching you take part in the games also! Thank you also to our visiting coaches throughout the week! We look forward to working with you again next year! Here are a few snaps shots of the week!
We have had so much fun participating in gymnastics sessions with Lorraine from Kids n’motion. So far we have tried rolling techniques and handstands along with many unusual stretching positions. The sun has shone throughout both lessons so please God it will continue to shine right through to Active week.
