Active School News
Last week we started our ‘Run Around Europe’ challenge. Each class will work together running laps of our astro-turf track. Every 8 laps equals 1 km. We’re going to try and make it as far across Europe as we can before the summer holidays!
We have started yard games with the whole school on Thursdays. Our focus for January and February is ‘4 square’. As the weather has not allowed us to play every Thursday we have also set up grids in the Halla for classes to practise.
We are making our ‘Run Around Europe’ challenge a little more exciting! Each class will have a target destination to reach before the Summer Holidays at the end of June.
