Glenasmole NS » Physical Activity

Glensmole N.S. strives to give pupils plenty physical activity each day. Every pupil gets two outdoor breaks (40 minutes total) each day, weather dependent. Where the weather inhibits us going outside, the teachers will have extended active breaks in the classroom. The teachers include short movement breaks throughout the day also.
Our Halloween Walk
We had our annual Halloween Walk on Thursday 25 th October. All the boys and girls in the school walked to different spooky stations in the local area.
Active Breaks!
On November 19 th , we started a new challenge! We are aiming to have 3 active breaks every day for 4 weeks. We will have a dance break, a running break and an activity break.
For our running break, we have set ourselves another challenge: The Run Around Europe Challenge!
In our classes, we will run laps of our yard. Each lap equals 1 km. We will add up all of the classes’ laps and see how far we ran. We are aiming to reach London, which is 597km away!
