Physical Education is our most popular subject in St. Fiachra’s J.N.S.
All pupils have at least 60 mins timetabled P.E. every week, usually one session indoors and one session outdoors.
All classes are taught at least 5 different strands of the curriculum:
Outdoor and Adventure
This year we are focusing on the Dance strand. The children have learned 3 Irish dances and created their own dance movements.
Even the teachers learned some dances
Fundamental movement skills
All teachers use the “Move Well, Move Often” programme when teaching the Fundamental Movement Skills.
These are the fundamental movement skills we are focusing on this year in St. Fiachra’s Junior School:
Ms O’Leary’s class showcasing the ‘Hopping’ FMS
Second classes will be learning about the Primary Aquatics Water Safety (PAWS) programme.
We have a wide variety of P.E. Equipment which is kept in our P.E. storage room.
We purchased new equipment this year thanks to funding from the Parents’ Council.
