We had great fun last week for Active School Week.
On Thursday, we played gaelic and learned lots of drills including how to pass and solo the ball. We played games which were great fun and helped improve our ball handling skills.
Friday was a very busy day with swimming in the Clayton Hotel, a soccer league in the Sligo IT and the juniors took part in Athletics on the Running Track over in Sligo IT.
Throughout the week we had our Walking Lap Challenge on our School Track. Every time we walked or ran a lap we ticked it on our board. At the end of each day we counted to see how many laps we completed for the day. On Thursday we completed over 350 laps!!!
Every morning we started the day with our Shake up and Wake up dance. I think our favourite dance had to be the ‘Cha Cha Slide’ which got everyone moving.
Some of the classes took on the 60 minute a day Physical Activity Challenge as part of their Active Homework.
We really enjoyed our Active Week this year.
