This month St. Finian’s is making a commitment to do the “Active Break Everyday Challenge” commencing on the 19thNovember.Our goal is to energise the school day for the wholeschool community – so staff will join in too!
This is a great way to generate whole school engagement with the Active School Flag process. It also means that children will gain more active minutes every day, in particular as the weather becomes colder and wetter, sometimes preventing them from playing outdoors.
Every class has a challenge chart that is displayed outside of the classroom door which the ASF committee member will tick upon completion every day.
All classes are participating in the #BeActive ‘Climb the Heights’ skipping challenge which gives children targets to work towards as well as promoting cross–curricular learning. Children will also participate in physical activity dance breaks through the Go Noodle website. The physical activity dance and skipping breaks coincide with our PE strand Dance and FMS focus Skipping for this month.
