ASF - March Activities
In March, building on our fitness from our February Daily Mile, we embarked on a 'Run around Ireland challenge. Initially we hoped to run to Waterford City and back but such was the success of the challenge that we ran to Limerick city from Waterford and then back to Killusty. We totalled a distance of 265km.
We are using an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of the distance run by each child every day .
The distance from Killusty to Waterford to Limerick and back to Killusty is 264km according to AA Routeplanner.
We participated in the FAI South Tipp schools soccer blitz entering two teams and had a great day out.
ASF - June Activities
During the month June, the ASF committee, with the help of the other children, created active school zones. Children took turns playing at the different stations and activities were changed regularly.
Also in June, children in the Senior Room took part in a Gaelic Football Blitz. Local schools in the area participated and great fun was enjoyed by all the children.
ASF - February Activities
February has arrived. Now that Spring is here we are outdoors again walking and running our daily mile. The ASF team measured the walkway with a trundle wheel and also with the help of Mapmyrun technology.
Swimming continues every Tuesday.
Our walkway lap measures at 250m. To run/walk a mile you have to run 6 and a half laps!
The senior room incorporated a relay to get there mile run some days. We looked at the correct baton changeover and positioning for incoming and outgoing runners.
The ASF team sorted out our P.E. store. They completed an inventory and repaired and pumped as needed. We are shopping for some new yard games and some replacement sport kits.
We also checked out the running videos on the Move Well Move Often Website to make sure we had the proper running techniques.
ASF - January Activities
In January children completed fun daily fitness exercises inside and outside of the classrooms. We used GoNoodle, Chair Yoga, Fyffes Fit Squad, Busy Breaks and 10 at 10 activities.
