As our strand for development this year is ‘Outdoor and Adventure’, we invited Tomás, a physical education facilitator from the PDST to our school to do fun and active workshops with every class. Tomás also touched on the stands ‘Gymnastics’ and ‘Dance’ and gave the teachers some fresh tips and ideas for lessons which was wonderful.
As we currently do not have access to a hall, Tomás facilitated some activities inside the classroom for the younger classes due to the wet weather on the day. Thankfully the weather dried up later on in the day and the children in 3rd – 6th class had fun engaging in outdoor cooperative challenges and mapping activities.
Tomás shared lots of ideas, resources and website suggestions such as the Move Well, Move Often programme which promotes the development of fundamental movement skills in primary aged children.
