One of our favourite times of year at Scoil Aodh Rua agus Nuala is Active SCHOOL Week! This year, because of COVID-19, it is not possible for this to go ahead so we are inviting families to take part in the ‘Active HOME Week’ challenge instead! The aim of this initiative is to encourage young people to keep active at home by trying out some new activities, take on challenges and have fun with their families. Participants have to find four different ways of being active every day, making sure that this adds up to 60 minutes of physical activity. We will be reducing the amount of written work you have to do during Active HOME Week to allow you more time to take part in this challenge. You might like to ask your parents to email your teachers some photos of you taking part in the challenge and we will put them up on our website. Below you will find more information about the challenge, a challenge chart to record your daily activities as well as an IDEAS Word Cloud with suggestions for keeping active.
