Virtual Sports Day Jumping

Children from Junior Infants to 6th Class jumped for height and for distance. Great use was made of everyday items to create jumps and to mark distances. Some excellent jumping techniques were used.   More sports day photos https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-kicking/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-throwing/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-egg-and-spoon/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-races/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-running/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-obstacle-course/


Virtual Sports Day

Virtual sports day saw the children participate in a variety of activities that incorporated different skills. Thank you to the parents for the photographs and reports. There were some unconfirmed reports of thumb holding during the spud and spoon and corner cutting in other races but these are yet to be verified. The children adapted many of the ideas and added their own events.

We also had the silly dress up race.   More sports day photos https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-jumping/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-kicking/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-throwing/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-egg-and-spoon/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-running/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-obstacle-course/
