Junior Infants took on our Solar System Trail and completed exercises at each new planet!
This year we are developing our Outdoor and Adventure strand of the PE curriculum. Our Junior Infants completed an 'Active Walk' around our Solar System trail. Students from our Active School committee helped by explaining a new fact about each planet and demonstrating a new exercise at each planet that we visited. We had lots of fun!
5th Class Treasure Hunt!
Our 5th class pupils used map reading skills, team work and research skills to find and follow clues to the hidden treasure! This was a wonderful introduction to orienteering as part of our 'Outdoor and Adventure' strand.
Senior Infants Solar System Trail
Our Senior Infants completed our Solar System Trail in the beautiful sunshine today. Our 6th Class Active School Committee member Sasha led the group. She also demonstrated all of the exercises expertly, as well as explaining a simple fact about each planet on our route.
