As part of our Active Flag programme, every class in the school committed to taking Active Breaks during the school day for the month of November 2018. This helped add a bit of fun into what can be a very dreary month, especially when the weather is too wet to play outside!
We did Yoga, facilitated by Helga Einarsdottir.
We 'ran to Europe' ! We are running the distance to lots of European landmarks, in laps around the school yard.
We did 'Go Noodle' dance breaks.
We did our 10@10 breaks including, 'Jumping Jacks', 'mountain climbers', 'jog on the spot'and other activities in each room
We had a football break for every class level throughout the day
Since our November initiative was so successful, we have been using these break activities on a weekly basis and they have proven successful in helping the children maintain their focus during the school week.
