Welcome to Killard's
Introducing KHS SPORTS DAY, yes SPORTS DAY but with one big difference it will be a
SPORTS DAY AT HOME
A DIY SPORTS DAY
So over the next few weeks, you will have the chance to practice some moving, jumping and throwing activities to prepare for the big day
THURSDAY 18TH JUNE
All the activities can be adapted to suit all age groups from Nursery and Foundation right up to Secondary through levels
WHITE , BLUE, YELLOW and RED
The idea is to find a safe space, indoors or outside where you can practice. Then measure and record what you do and try and improve each time you do it - a PERSONAL BEST
Your personal best might be doing the activity independently or it might be with the aid of an adult or it might be measured. Remember any try is good so long as it is your BEST!!
Now lets get things started with these pdfs
Here we go.....come on, you can do this, set your personal best in these three!! Also want to know how to make a paper plane? Check out Miss Lowry Science and Technology lessons for this week!!

He was just back from his trial for the Ireland U16 inline hockey squad and when he heard that primary classes were learning how to play Unihoc in class he was delighted to come along and give everyone a few tips. We were all amazed with his skating skills and Joshua showed everyone the special gloves, roller skates and stick that he uses. Mrs Curry even picked up a few practice drills from Joshua that she can use in her lessons. Thank you Joshua.
