Fingal County Council Sports Office has launched a new online schools initiative called SportsCon 10@10. SportsCon 10@10 is 10 exercises performed for 10 minutes each day. It is designed to keep kids active while staying in their classroom. The programme will also include some interesting physical activity facts as an educational element. Teachers can fit in the 10 minutes of activity at any stage of the day to suit the class schedule.
These activities will complement the strands of the P.E curriculum and are a great idea for Active Flag School Challenges. The exercises are closely aligned with Fingal’s Sports Conditioning programme focusing on balance, strength, mobility and motor skills.
Margaret Geraghty, Director of Service, Fingal County Council, acknowledges that this is a very challenging time for teachers trying to deliver P.E. “Teachers are much more restricted in terms of where and when they can deliver P.E. sessions. 10@10 hopes to alleviate some of these challenges and assist teachers with new ideas to help children stay active in the classroom with fun exercises along with an educational element.”
