Busy Breaks

On Friday the 20th of April students from Sligo IT came into our school to show us some exercises that we can do in our classroom.
Exercising is very important as it increases our heart rate and keeps us fit and healthy. After exercising we are able to concentrate more on our lessons.

We started the exercises with some stretches to make sure our muscles were warmed up. Then we did some hopping , jumping, waving and punching exercises. These increased the rate of our heart. After this we finished of with some cool down exercises and stretches. It was great fun and we felt full of energy after it.
