We have started our FMS work this year! The first skill we are practicing and perfecting is catching. Here are some of our students working in their mini pods in pairs to catch the ball after one bounce post drop! It can be trickier than it looks! We got this game from the Move Well Move Often book and are excited to play some more games from it.

Outdoor PE

With our school hall out of action at the moment due to the change around in school rooms for Covid, we have been so happy to have decent weather for our PE lessons for the most part! We are well used to going out in the drizzles of rain  and are ready to wrap up for winter too. It is fun being outside for PE, look how much space we have!

PAWS - Water Safety

1st Class are delighted that Splash the Bear and River the Otter have sent them their PAWS certificates for completing their water safety programme this year. If you look closely in school you might be able to spy some of the water safety posters they designed to help Splash and River out!

Well done 1st Class!

Covid_19: P.E. at home and a challenge!

Hello everybody. We hope you are all keeping safe and well at home. We miss you lots, and we definitely miss doing P.E. with you. We have put some recommendations together for ways to stay healthy and active and to continue doing your P.E. lessons at home, until we can get back to school together!


  • The Body Coach, Joe Wicks is doing P.E. lessons on his YouTube channel at 9am Monday to Friday. 
  • RTE JR have their 10 @10 exercises online - this is 10 minutes of exercise at 10am each morning, and they have it as Gaeilge too, for those of you who are keen to keep up your scileanna Ghaeilge! 
  • Go Noodle is a popular one, why don't you sign up for a FREE account and see how many points you can get for your character? Then see how many characters you can complete!
  • Cosmic Kids Yoga is another YouTube channel proving very popular. It is good for your mindfulness as well as stretching your muscles.


The links for all of these websites are below. We have also attached some documents, which might be useful to you. They are suggestions of activities you can do to stay active at home, or take a movement break. 


You will also see below a CHALLENGE!!! Did you know it is recommended that children get 60 minutes of physical activity each day? Why not download our 60 MINUTES A DAY challenge sheet and see if you can complete it this week and fill it in. If you complete this, bring the sheet into Miss Plunkett when we get back to school.

Check out some of our students participating in their P.E. classes! They are multiskilled! Every student at KCOINS receives lessons in the strands Dance, Games, Gymnastics, Outdoor and Adventure and Athletics each year. 1st class to 6th class each complete a block of swimming lessons in our local leisure centre, Meadowbrook, every year too! Can you pick your favourite strand?!
