As part of working towards our Active School Flag, we took part in a Running Challenge for 4 weeks. During this time, we built a running break into every day. It was an excellent way for children to learn about some of Ireland’s most famous landmarks and ideal for bringing learning outdoors. Each class were given:
In total, each class aimed to complete 3726km (3726 laps!) with the older classes completing even more. Well done to the children for their excellent efforts!
The children were given the chance to create their own playlist for music on the yard! All groups, from Junior Infants to 6th Class were involved and each child picked their favourite song to add to the playlist. We will update the playlist each month!
Here are some of the children enjoying the music!!
