We had the senior room lead us in dance this morning for ‘Wake Up, Shake Up’! We had great fun doing ‘rock the boat’ and ‘The Macerena’ and Baby Shark even made an appearance!

We were delighted to welcome, Tim Foley of Tourmakeady Handball Club to our school today. The children learned about the history of handball and how it is a GAA sport. Handball is a very skilful, fast paced sport that requires quick thinking! Anyone can play handball, all you need is a ball and a wall! Handball promotes endurance and coordination and it was fantastic for the children to have the opportunity to try it out!

We had a lunch time disco today that the children really enjoyed! We were bopping along to all the latest songs and we got some practice in for tomorrow! We had some very creative moves going on!

We are holding a very exciting ‘Community Day’ tomorrow as part of our active week.

Mayo Sports Partnership will join us on our community walk at 9 am – all welcome!

‘Gortskehy goes Country’ tomorrow at 12.30 pm, come along for a sing-song and a dance!

We had great fun this morning line dancing to some country music, led by the middle room. We were energised after doing ‘The Bunny Hop’! We are getting ready for ‘Gortskehy goes Country’ on Friday afternoon!

The infants brought their teddy bears for a ‘ready teddy go’ walk! The teddies got up to great mischief on their travels! Then they all had a picnic together.

The middle room took part in circuits today. There was a range of activities from jumping jacks, to throwing and catching, to skipping, etc.

The senior room were very busy working with Lisa from Tug of War Ireland. They learned all the tricks for tug of war and had great fun!

Don’t forget the active homework!

We got active week of to a great start this morning as the infants led our dance for ‘wake up, shake up’. We did the Hokey Pokey and the Cha Cha Slide! We felt great afterwards.

We enjoyed break time with our Playground Leaders keeping us busy!

We had an active music lesson with Music Generation Mayo in the junior and middle room! We had to dance to fast and slow music. We also went on a bear hunt creating sounds with our recycled musical instruments we made last week!

We had a really enjoyable tennis taster this afternoon. It was great to have the opportunity to try a new sport and gain new skills! We played mini matches and had lots of fun!

 

Enjoy the active homework!
