In accordance with our PE plan, all classes receive 1 hour physical education each week. Teachers use the primary school PE curriculum and the PSSI lessons plans to plan their lessons. We follow a standardised PE Timetable. Children from 3rd to 6th go swimming during one term of the school year.
The area of the PE curriculum we decided to prioritize this year is Games. The PSSI lesson plans were distributed to all class teachers. Games were incorporated into our Active Yard. The children engage in games on a regular basis in the second and third terms of the school year through Sports Day and school competitions such as hurling and camogie.
