Physical Education

Physical Education is taught by the class teacher for 1 hour each week. The children are very fortunate to have other coaches and experts visit the school to teach soccer and basketball. We also attend swimming for a period of 8-10 weeks in the Summer term.

On Friday, 15th April, Junior & Senior Infants took part in their annual egg hunt in the grounds of Wandesforde National School. This year it was an egg hunt with a difference! The children had to pair up with another child and have a tie put around their legs as if they were doing the Three Legged Race! Here are the photographs to prove it!

The children had to search, here,

there

and everywhere! All the children worked so well together and thankfully all the eggs were collected! The team who collected the most eggs were….

Well done boys!

On Wednesday, 13th April, the Infant Classroom had an eggstra special  P.E. lesson to celebrate Easter!

Here are some photos of the Egg & Spoon Relay!

We had to be very careful not to drop the egg!

 

There were also hens laying their eggs in the Wandesforde Hall!

 

At the end of our P.E. Lesson, we played a Co-operative Game called “Rotten Egg!”. The children had to pass the egg over their head to the next person without dropping it! It was great to see the children working together as a team!

Hockey

In our school we have lots of sports equipment. My favourite sport is hockey. During PE we warm up and then our teacher splits us up into groups. We then play lots of matches.

After our matches we have a final and the winners of the final get a treat from the teacher.  When we play hockey we use plastic or tennis balls as they are safer. Our school is very health and safety aware!
