🏃🏼♀️ Running Superstars 🏃🏼
As we are getting close to Sports Day we are practising our listening skills when running in a group race. We had to listen to the instructions and then watch our team closely so we knew when to run. Mrs Cassidy was very impressed she knows we are ready for Sports Day now!
🏃🏻♂️ Daily Mile 🏃🏼♀️
We had a go at running on our new daily mile track! It was so much fun, we're super excited to use this to help us keep fit and healthy!
🏐 Ulster GAA: Running Games 🏐
This week with Oisin we played running games. We had to chase each other and try to grab the ‘tail’. We can run super fast and we have been working really hard on our spacial awareness skills!
🏐 Ulster GAA- Throwing and Catching 🏐
This week with Oisin we worked on throwing and catching a ball in a cone with a partner. It was super tricky but we were amazing at it!! Mrs Cassidy had a go and she was terrible, poor Conor had to be her partner and he caught all the balls while she dropped them all!
Working on our ball handling skills 🏐
We completed an obstacle course in our Friday PE session. We had to run around the cone, run to the hoop bounce or catch the ball and then run back to the start again. It was so much fun and we showed everyone how super our ball handling skills are!
🏐 Ulster GAA 🏐
We had a great skills session with a new coach! Oisin from Ulster GAA played lots of fun games with us! We ran and jumped around cones it was so much fun! We can’t wait to join in again next week. 😄
Match of the day ⚽️
This week we started our matches in Burns Soccer. We tried to use all the skills we have been learning over the last few weeks to score goals for our team. Our player of the week was Lorcan, well done!
Learning to drag back ⚽️
This week we used our dribbling skills to learn a new skill. We can now drag back the ball and change direction. This helps us when playing matches to stop quickly and change direction with the ball to keep it away from an opponent.
Well done to Fianna, our player of the week!
Scoring Goals ⚽️
This week in Burns Soccer we practised scoring goals.
I think you’ll agree that we’re ready for the Premier League. 😄
Passing the ball ⚽️
This week in Burns Soccer we practised passing the ball to a partner. We started by rolling the ball using our hands then we progressed to using our feet.
Monica was our player of the week. Well done!
Learning to dribble the ball ⚽️
This week during Burns Soccer we learned how to dribble the ball with the sides of our feet. We also learned a new trick of how to stop and ball only using our feet. We had PE indoors today as the weather was too wet and windy to go outside.
Taylor was our player of the week, well done! 🙂
🏐 Fundamental Skills in P2 🏐
This week we practised our ball handling skills with Mrs Cassidy. Before we started we talked about why it is important to warm up before exercise. We did some stretching and warm up games. After, we played a game where we had to run around a cone, bounce the ball in the hoop and then throw it up and catch it. Watch how speedy we can do this in the videos!!!
This week at Burns Soccer we practised dribbling and scoring goals with our soccer coach Alex.
⚽️ Primary 2 Soccer Stars ⚽️
The Primary 2 children have resumed their Burns Soccer sessions. This week we focused on spacial awareness and controlling the ball with our feet. Our coach was super impressed with our skills! Alex was voted our player of the week. Well Done Alex!
