RUN A DAY CHALLENGE 2022 Our school has committed to the 4 week Run Around Ireland Challenge The Run Around Ireland challenge is a key criteria for renewal of our active flag. This running challenge will help children learn about Ireland famous landmarks and bringing the learning outdoors. How we prepared for challenge? Each class were given a Run Around Ireland sheet (see pictures) The pupils had to work out the distance between the school and the different landmarks using google maps. The pupils committed to running every day for 4 weeks. The pupils ran laps each day around the school(1 lap =1 km). When pupils reached the required landmark distance, they ticked it off the list.
Active homework Pupils have been keeping active at home too through the active homework initiative. The pupils must complete one physical activity every day for homework The pupils colour in the activity when they have it finished on their active homework sheet. The pupils have participated really well and this has helped their health and wellbeing.
