All classes participate in Physical Education classes for at
least 1 hour per week. The strands covered are athletics, games, dance,
orienteering and swimming. One lesson focusses on the development of our Fundamental movement skills and the other on the focus strand/strand unit of that term which may or may not include the same FMS that is covered in those weeks also.
In addition to PE classes children receive outside tuition in yoga and also in GAA skills.
As well as teaching Physical Education lessons in Masterson NS we strive to encourage physical activity throughout the day. We take regular activity breaks: Run a KM a Day. Wake Up/Shake Up, movement breaks and 10@10.
We have active lines. We keep busy when we are lining up and do a variety of exercises such as star jumps, high knees, running on the spot etc.
We have special days that focus on encouraging an active lifestyle.
We encourage staff and pupils take an active approach to all aspects of their day.
Every child’s progress in PE is discussed with parents at parent/teacher meeting.
Feedback about progress in Physical Education is included in annual school reports.
