Active and Mindfulness Week Day Two

Good morning Bunscoil Rís students! 😎


Magic Word: Sunshine= 5 burpees

Don’t forget to keep track of the kilometres you walk today and share it with us also.

Today is GAA day!! We are very excited to say that Senior Wexford hurler Diarmuid O’Keefe will be helping us out today. Dee O’Keefe is from Rathangan and plays midfield for Wexford. He won an All Star Award last year and played a huge role in winning Wexford the 2019 Senior Hurling Leinster Championship title. Mr. Murphy is also a very skilled hurler and has set you challenges for the day.

1. How many jab lifts can you do in a minute?
2. How many handpasses can you do off a wall in a minute?
3. Create a target area to land a sliotar or football in.
4. Send a video of you doing freestyle hurling skills.
5. Practise chip picking up a football.

Take a look at the video which I have posted to the school’s Facebook page and Class DoJo now of the challenges Dee has set you for the day. Best of luck!

Today’s mindfulness activity is to do something that you enjoy. Do something for yourself. It might be reading, baking, walking, running, playing a game etc.

Have a great day!

Ms. Kavanagh


Good morning boys and girls! Are you ready for another fun filled day of activities?

Magic Word: Beachball = Lunges from 60 seconds. Someone in your house says this word and everyone must do the activity. It can be said randomly throughout the day!

Remember to send me the distance you walk today as we are trying to walk around Ireland this week.


Have a fantastic day and try to do it all outside as it looks like it’s going to be another lovely day.

This morning afternoon activity is a Body Burn Workout.

Warm up for 5 minutes (jog on the spot, high knees, kick your feet back high and stretch)

Do each exercise for 50 seconds with a 10 second break. Repeat twice.

  1. Mountain climbers
  2. Squats
  3. Jumping Jacks
  4. Burpees
  5. Plank

Cool down by jogging lightly on the spot, slowing to a walk and finally stretch!

Your afternoon activity is Urban Rascals at 1.30pm. Tune into Urban Gym on Facebook. Comment ‘We love Active Week!’ with your name and class so we can see you taking part.

For mindfulness today, at the end of the day, lay on you bed and focus on your breathing. Think about what you liked about today and what you didn’t like. This also works well by telling someone so you could do this before bedtime also.
