Active Stations in Junior Infants

Junior Infants have been exercising lots during ‘Active Stations’ every Friday. The aim of this initiative is to get the children moving, active and healthy. St. Mary’s is an Active School and our children are very active. Junior Infants enjoy a range of varying activities throughout the six different stations they engage with every Friday. Each station focus’s on various fundamental movement skills such as walking, hopping, skipping etc. Junior infants have made so much progress already and they really look forward to the fun and games every week.

The children love completing many different animal movements on the mats – bear crawls, crab walks, slithering snakes, bunny hops and frog jumps to name a few.

We love throwing and catching in Junior Infants! We are getting particularly good at the under arm throw! Their hand/eye coordination has improved well since September.

Well done Junior Infants! Keep up the great work!
