We have reached to Berlin in our Run Around Europe Challenge! After Storm Emma passes we will begin running again and pick our next destination!
During break times in Anglesboro we always encourage our children to walk and chat... that way we can stay active while conversing with our friends! :)
Michael Lewis former principal of Anglesboro school joined us this Spring to bring 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes on a historical and geographical walking tour of our local area. We learned about trees in our school grounds and famous local landmarks. We even learned a story about the Fianna. It was a fantastic opportunity to bring our learning outdooors. Big thank you to Mr. Lewis. It was a really enjoyable experience while also getting our steps in! :)
On the 18/1/18 Tom Morrissey, Pat Donnely and James Ryan came to the school at ten past twelve. They brought the under 21 All Ireland cup.When everyone was in the hall Mr. Kearney introduced them and fourteen people asked questions. After the questions we took photos. Then we took family photos. Soon after the photos, Tom Morrissey signed our jerseys. It was really nice to have the Limerick team come to the school. By Hannah Slattery
Today Thursday 18-01-2018 some of the Limerick u21s visited the school. Tom Morrissey (the captain of the team), Pat Donnely (the manager of the team) and James Ryan the former senior captain all came. We asked a few questions and they gave us some advice like KEEP TRAINING ALWAYS TRAIN. Do you actually know how much they train? They train 5 days a week, three on the pitch and 2 in the gym. I thought they trained just before the actual match. We took a few photos and everyone got a picture with the cup. By Caoimhe Browne Vaughan
On Thursday the 18th of January Tom Morrissey the Limerick U21 captain, Pat Donnely the manager of Limerick U21s and James Ryan former Limerick senior captain came to our school. Tom Morrissey brought the All Ireland U21 cup. James Ryan spoke about how you should never give up at what you like and always be confident. Pat said that they lost the minor All Ireland final three years ago to Kilkenny and beat them this year in the U21 All Ireland final. Tom Morrissey said that they trained 5 nights a week, 3 on the pitch and 2 in the gym. We asked Tom questions. I asked him what his favourite stadium to play in was. He said Croke Park. When we were finished asking questions we took a few pictures and asked for autographs. Thanks to Tom, Pat and James for coming out to see us. By Cian Ryan
Yoga classes with Marguerite O' Mahony have begun and will run for the next 5 weeks. Friday mornings have never been as calming!!
Today as part of our Active Schools campaign we held our Christmas Olympics. A big thank you to the Active Schools committee and Ms Kelly for organising the event. It was great to see the children so active and happy as well as seeing them working together so well for the various challenges.
On the 20th of December 2017 we held our Christmas Olympics. The morning was amazing with loads of different fun stations. There was 15 different “Christmassy” stations such as Build a Snowman, Ho Ho Ho Limbo, Santa’s Workshop, Sleigh Pull, Penguin Waddle, Brussel Sprout Relay, The Christmas Tree Challenge, Christmas Cracker Challenge, Turkey Trot, Jingle Bells, Active Selection Box, North Pole Igloo Challenge, Pin the Nose on Rudolph, The Grinch and Twister. My favourite station was Ho Ho Ho Limbo. It was where you had to do the limbo but you had to put on a Santa coat with a cushion and a belt to make it extra hard. There was about 13 or 14 groups altogether. In my group there was Tomás, Jayden and Kayleigh. The place was really full of Christmas spirit with a speaker playing Christmas songs. We hope to do another Olympics for summer. (By Seán)
On Wednesday morning when I arrived at school the teachers were setting up our Winter Olympics. Ms Kelly called us to come down to the hall so she could tell us our teams and explain the stations. We had 14 teams with a mixture of different classes. My favourite station was the Penguin Waddle. It was great fun because it was hard to run with a balloon in between your legs. Every one enjoyed the day and we also got an extra 5 minutes of break. Thanks to the teachers and the Active school Committee for making this such a great day. (By Paddy)
For the Christmas Season we have begun our 12 days of fitness challenge. Every day for the run up to Christmas we will be doing a HIIT workout. This workout will focus on getting our heart-rate up while also improving our fundamental movement skills. Paddy from our Active Schools committee will be working in conjunction with Miss. Kelly to develop the exercise program.
