Physical Activity

As well as our formal Physical Education curriculum delivery, in Kill NS we strive to encourage physical activity throughout the day. The children take part in active breaks everyday.

Such as :-

Olympic Movements Breaks

The Daily Mile/aka Laps!

Run Around Europe Challenge

St Patrick’s Day – Seachtain naGaeilge

Buddy Activities – Buddy Dance

But the activity does not stop there! We are imaginative about how we encourage activity and want to make activity as inclusive as possible.

Dance Takeover

New Yard Markings

Skipping Workshop

Active Walkway

Our classes really enjoy getting outside to do lots of subjects. We use our Active Walkway to introduce activity into English, Maths, Georgraphy and Science among others.

The Fairies have even got in on the act! Our younger classes enjoy our “Fairy Walkway”

Seasonal Activities

We use occasions to inspire activities –

Halloween – Fancy Dress walk/dance/run

Christmas – Santa Dash

World Book Day

Easter Egg Hunt

Bad Weather – There’s no such Thing!

Not even bad weather can put a stop to activity in Kill NS. Our teachers are always innovative in making sure activity is part of everyday.

Table Tennis – Go Noodle – Let’s Dance – Movement in Class – Chain Pushups – Walk & Talk – Movement Breaks

Active School News

Each class takes turns to read out all our activity related news during the course of the year. They really enjoy using the intercom!

Active School Committee

We value the student voice in Kill NS. Our Active School Committee plays a leading role in planning and monitoring active initiatives.

Playground Leaders

We have a group of Playground Leaders, they organise and do activities on the front yard from junior infants to 1st class each Friday. They also give out equipment every Thursday on back yard.
