Gymnastics in the Jnr Room
Jnr & Snr Infants and First Class had a treat this morning. Miss Dwyer did a gymnastics lesson in their classroom with them. They did warm-up stretches and tried to balance like a tree. Then they worked in pairs or small groups and tried to copy the basic balances from the picture diagrams that they were given. They displayed excellent teamwork and perseverance and it was tremendous fun.
Miss Dwyer (a past pupil of St Brendan’s N.S) who is here on teaching practice, came to fifth and sixth class today to teach balancing skills in Gymnastics. She challenged the students to perform balances and provided each pair or group with pictures of the required poses. It was a tremendous class as the children demonstrated enthusiasm and co-operation, challenged themselves and everyone has so much fun.
