This week was Active Week in Scoil Mhuire. We started every morning with "Wake-Up, Shake-Up" exercises in the yard. The whole school has been doing squats, lunges, leap frogs and much more every morning before we start our lessons. It was great to see some parents joining in too. The children did 'Active Homework' every night this week and lots of classes did extra P.E. too. Well done to everybody!
On Monday we started off Active Week with "Marathon Monday". Every class ran 252 laps around the yard between all the children totaling 42km - a full marathon per class!
On Tuesday the Junior Classes did races with the teachers. It was very competitive.
Wednesday morning Ms. Dowling organised running for lots of children, parents and teachers. It was great to see so many people out getting fit.
On Wednesday and Thursday Skipping John came to our school and taught every class how to skip and do tricks. On Thursday the classes put on a show to demonstrate what they had learned in their skipping workshop.
Friday morning the whole school performed a dance in assembly to "Best Day of my Life". The children had been practising all week in their classes and some children even practised at home. Check out the video below.
On Friday afternoon the Senior Classes played the Teachers in a game of rounders. It was very competitive and the students took an early lead. The teachers rallied however and the final score was 18-13 to the teachers. Well done to all who took part.
