Teachers will hopefully use this website as a means of encouraging children to adopt a more active way of life. The site contains some very useful, energetic basketball games/lessons that should bring fun and enthusiasm to teachers’ PE lessons. Many of the lesson ideas can be used or adapted to suit other sports such as hockey, football or hurling/camogie. I have recorded ‘easy to learn’ Irish dance routines that will help teachers to introduce Irish dancing to their students. The two dances that I focus on here are the reel and the jig.

Curriculum Addressed

‘Get active and stay active’ is a project that looks at two strands of the PE curriculum, Dance and Games.

The dance strand is based on Irish dancing and the games strand looks at the game of basketball.
