  • Train participants to apply dynamic thinking, assessing conditions and the environment on the road as they go through their journey

The children are learning to :

  • Use of gears, braking, cycling one-handed / signalling and looking behind
  • Junctions and blind bends
  • Roundabouts
  • Using cycle facilities on and off road
  • Cycling safety¬†with children

Capture the Flag

Capture the Flag has long been a favourite here at Togher N.S. It’s a really fun game that burns lots of energy, but also requires strategy, teamwork and bravery. The children in the Junior Room really enjoyed Capture the Flag during Physical Education this week.

Yoga

The children really enjoyed another Yoga session this week. These weekly Yoga sessions have helped the children to enhance their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness while also improving their concentration and sense of calmness.

Many thanks to our wonderful Parents Association who are funding this activity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Togher’s Got Talent

The children treated us to some wonderful singing, gymnastics, story-telling, signing to music, magic, instrument playing and even show jumping as part of Togher’s Got Talent. This annual event is a fun, engaging way for the children to show off something they are good at, practice performing, stand in front of an audience (or send a video) and receive positive feedback for their efforts. Congratulations to all the children that took part.
