Active Break Challenge

All our classes have been taking part in the Active Break Challenge recently.

The goal is to promote regular Active Breaks each day over the month.

Classes have been dancing, running, and completing exercise circuits between subjects daily.

Our Active School Committee has been busy reminding our classes about the benefits of this regular movement and has been rewarding classes with stars to go toward our ‘Class of the Week’ tally. 

Dare to Believe Olympic Movement Breaks

Our classes have been using the Dare to Believe Olympic Movement Breaks as part of the challenge too. These have proven to be a real hit in all our classrooms. The Olympic Movement Breaks are a series of short videos led by Olympians and High-Performance athletes demonstrating fun exercises and activities in a variety of different sports including athletics, boxing, rugby sevens, swimming, breakdancing, and para powerlifting.

Please see a short snippet of our 2nd and 3rd classes enjoying these fabulous classroom based movement videos.
