Active Schools Update
The Active Schools Committee have met twice this term to talk about how well our yoga went in term 2 and to decide on our goals for term 3. The children reported back on how yoga went in their classroom. They said it was fun, easy and made them feel fit, stronger and relaxed with some classes reporting they did yoga every day, some reporting they did it as part of P.E. and others doing yoga once a week.
We then chatted about our goals for term 3. We decided to focus on improving our running skills. We want each class to start running every day to increase our stamina and fitness. Junior infants are going to start by running 1 lap daily, senior infants will run 2 laps daily and first class will run 3 laps daily. We hope to increase our distance every week to prepare ourselves for race day in Mountjoy Square in June.
Some of our Playground Leaders measured our 100m distance for our lap around the yard. We will record how many laps we have done on our Central Model Infants’ School 9 Peaks challenge sheet in each classroom. If each class completes the challenge they will have run 9000m. If the whole school completes the challenge we will have run 81000m which is 81 kilometres!
