5 for 5 Competition! A call for all boys to get involved (and parents too, if they wish)

Over the next 2 weeks we are going to run a challenge called 5 for 5 between the three 5th classes – This also includes YOUR TEACHERS. Everyone has 5 exercises with 1 minute to complete as many proper repetitions of each exercise as you can before moving onto the next exercise. In total you have 5 minutes (each day, Monday to Friday). These are the 5 exercises:


  1. Star Jumps
  2. Press Ups
  3. Squats
  4. Sit ups
  5. Burpees


Use a stopwatch/ phone to time the 5 minutes. After 1 minute move to the next exercise. Make sure to record the number of each exercise you completed and add it to find your total for the week. Don’t worry if you can only do a few of each exercise to start off with, just keep at it everyday and watch how quickly you improve. 


Eg – Mr. Barry 


Star Jumps for week: 20

Press Ups: 40 

and so on


Please be completely honest and email your results to your teacher each Friday. Your teacher will ten add the total for the whole class and post it onto the website. It would be fantastic if lads could also send in a picture of them doing an exercise to inspire others. There will be prizes for the class with the highest score.


Finally, may the best class win!!!

Mr. Barry, Ms.Tobin & Mr.Kelly
