Where we're at....
I hope you are all safe and well! I just thought I'd take some time to update you on where we're at.
Simply put in level 2 we can run classes inside as normal with protective measures in place, in level 3, 4 or 5 we move outside and do a more simplified version of the class.
Why more simplified? The main reason being the weather, the most important thing for us is that children stay warm throughout the class so that they don't injure themselves. It is very difficult to explain more difficult skills (quickly) in a large, outdoor space with the wind blowing and be sure that the children know what is being asked of them so that they can complete it safely. We are focusing on building strength, co-ordination and fitness during these classes. We revise the skills the children already know and add in new skills where we can. We have come up with loads of fun, socially distanced games and the children are really enjoying the outdoor classes, some prefer them to being inside!
We are starting a 4 week term of outdoor classes this week with a Reveal class on Monday at 4pm and a Ninja class on Thurday at 4pm in Scoil Uí Riada, Kilcock. There are spaces available and you can book in here. Please remember that you can avoid the booking fee by paying in cash or by bank transfer.
