Virtual Active Week: 15th – 19th June
Hello 5th Class. This week is ‘Sports Week’, as a result there will be no normal lessons this week. Instead the teachers in school have organised a ‘Virtual Active Week’.



In order to view and access the daily activities, you must click on the link below. Within the link, you will see a day by day schedule for the entire week, including: ‘daily starters’, ‘teacher challenges’, ‘daily mile challenges’ and much more.

Note
As this week is all about physical activity, there will be a break from ‘normal lessons’. However, I would recommend that your child continues to read a book of his/her choice for about 20-30 minutes per day, if possible.
But most of all enjoy the fun activities this week.
God Bless---Mr McGuire
