This year our Active School Week took place from the 6th – 10th May.


School was closed for the May bank holiday but everyone was encouraged to be active over the long weekend.



We started the Million Step Challenge. Classes took it in turns to wear the pedometers during PE, the Morning Mile, etc.

The pupils all had active homework to do each evening. Here’s a copy of our Active School Week Homework Diary –

We continued the Million Step Challenge. The weather wasn’t great but we did indoor PE and active wet breaks using Go Noodle which the children love!


The Million Step Challenge continued. The weather still wasn’t great but there was more indoor PE and Go Noodle!


We had Active Assembly led by 6th class. We learned all about exercise and the benefits of exercising. We learned a little about life saving and we all took pa rt in the Haka as Gaeilge! We also sang a song with lots of actions!

At 12o’clock we had Drop Everything And Dance and everyone did the macarena in their classrooms!

The weather was beautiful and lots of classes were outside. 6th class measured how fast they could run using time, speed and distance. Junior Infants did some orienteering in the junior yard. 1st class were doing PE and practising relays for sports day. 4th class did our new walking trail (see the Walking TraiL page) and timed how far they could run in 12 seconds as part of their maths investigations. They also measured the area of both yards.
