The Daily Mile
Our classrooms do 10 to 15 minutes of walking and running throughout the school day around the marked out school yard route. We are finding it brilliant to help the children concentrate after - the effect is amazing! Our children are keeping fit and healthy!
All the children in school over Maths week completed a Maths Trail around the school as well as Third to Sixth Class walking down to the town of Mountrath to complete a Car Park Trail. They had great fun doing Maths while keeping fit and healthy!
All the boys in our school dressed up in their Halloween costumes. After they had a model show of their costumes, they did a "Do Your Talking as Your Walking" in their Halloween costumes, along the running route we use for our Daily Mile. It was a very cold day but the children were not long heating up doing exercise!
For the month of November, our school has agreed to complete at least one busy break throughout the school day in the classroom for the entire month of November! The busy breaks can include a running break, a dance break or a exercise break. The Active School Committee are happily taking charge of this with a chart hanging up on every classrooms door to be ticked off daily.
