The children took part in a Marathon Kids challenge in Deirdre's 5th class. The children had the opportunity to complete a marathon (26.2 miles) by completing 4 running sessions per week for 8 weeks to build their physical ability together with learning about benefits of exercising, health, wellbeing, nutrition and hydration which will benefit them in all aspects of life. The children teamed up with Olya's 5th class and were awarded a medal and a t-shirt in recognition for completing this programme. The celebrations included a warm cup of hot-chocolate after all their hard work.
We went swimming on Monday 27th February for this first time this year. The children enjoyed the bus journey to the swimming pool by singing their favourite songs such as 'The Wheels On The Bus' and 'Bob The Builder'. They loved pointing out their own homes along the way to each other. The children embraced this wonderful opportunity of learning to or improving their swimming ability with excitement. Well done to 5th class and we look forward to the next few weeks.
