Active Advent Calendar
In the 4 weeks before Christmas we celebrated an Active Advent. Each class had an opportunity to reveal the day’s activity. Once the activity was announced, every class completed the activity, for example 10 burpees. This will be a fun way of keeping active in the run up to Christmas! Exercising along to some Christmas music was the perfect way to up our daily activity levels. Ms Gately’s class kicked things off on Wednesday 25th of November.
Thank you to Mr O’Connell’s class for creating the calendar.
Climb the Heights Challenge
When we were learning from home, we wanted to find a way to stay active altogether even though we were physically apart. The teachers started first and put the challenge to the girls. We recorded all the skips or jumping jacks we completed every day. When we returned to school, we calculated how many mountains in Europe we had climbed by combining all of our jumps. We managed to climb the all of the mountains in the challenge 4 times and have enough meters left to ALMOST get us to the top of Mt. Everest. We better keep jumping and skipping to get up back down from there!!
Not bad when we were all staying safe within our 5k!
