PostHeaderIcon A6 Get Fit!

Today 5th class participated in a  Physical Activity study with the help of Ben, Roisin and Christine from DCU! They assessed our height, weight, fitness level, muscular strength, blood pressure and waist circumference. We also completed an in-depth questionnaire on physical activity and how often we engage in it during a week. Check out some of the photos and huge thanks to Ben, Roisin and Christine for asking us to participate in their research!

PostHeaderIcon January in Room 6

The Senior Infants in Room 6 had a lovely, peaceful January. They went on yoga adventures, played yoga jenga, practised pair poses and enjoyed lots of relaxation. Unfortunately our yoga studio is now shut but we’re looking forward to some more yoga before Easter.

Room 6 were very busy experimenting with coding. We love using the Bee-Bots! We had a great time playing What Am I with Ms Thornton too. We were also inspired by the upcoming Winter Olympics. We created pictures of ourselves as skiers. We can’t wait to hit the slopes in real life! Pop down to us to see our wonderful creations.

We would also like to say a big thank you to all the mammies, daddies and grannies who have helped out with Kids Talk so far this year. Laragh has read us some great books and given us lots of fun activities to do. We’re really looking forward to our next session.

PostHeaderIcon Marathon Running in A5


This month (January 18′) in A5 we are being active for our 10 minutes a day in a very different way! We have being going outside to our yard everyday to do laps of the school yard! 1 lap of the whole yard is 100 metres! We try to do at least 1 kilometre a day! So far we have run 8 kilometres! We try to run in the mornings and we find it really helps our concentration for the rest of the day!
