Healthy Lifestyle Week 2017

This week we have been completely off timetable and the children have been working their round a series of workshops to learn about how to lead a healthy lifestyle in a fun way. There’s been skipping and sun safety, melon boats and sushi making amongst many other things. The children have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. A great big thank you to all of the staff in addition to parents and other members of our community who have volunteered to make the week such a tremendous success.

Sports Day Success!

What a fantastic day we had yesterday! In the morning children worked their way round a circuit of mini-games in mixed age groups to score as many points as they could for their team colour. We then enjoyed a very relaxed picnic lunch with families and finished off the day with traditional running races. Throughout the day the children did themselves proud showing great spirit and sportsmanship. We have been particularly impressed with the maturity of our older children as they have taken responsibility of their groups and really looked after the younger ones. A big thank you to Mr Coppack for organising such a great day.

Year 4 – The Iron Man

Year 4 have enjoyed working on the Iron Man story by Ted Hughes and comparing it with the film, The Iron Giant! The children have loved these stories and been so inspired – their work and discussions have been so thoughtful!
I challenged each child to make an Iron Man that they could carry into school – the rest was up to them!!!!I have been amazed by the work that has gone into each Iron Man, the children have exceeded my expectations! Thank you to parents, grandparents and anybody else who assisted the children in making them! Miss Harwin

Sports Activity Morning 24/5/17

We have had a great morning full of different activities testing the children’s physical skills. They have worked hard each time to score points for their team. Each team is made up of children from every class, this really helps the children to work together and help each other along the way.

Healthy Lifestyle Week with Mrs Budgett 

As you are fully aware this week is Healthy Lifestyle week. In the meeting room each group is looking at the importance of bringing a healthy packed lunch to school. We have discussed what the children bring, as well as look at examples of good and bad examples. We talk about the different food groups needed to stay healthy and then finish by drawing an example of a very healthy lunchbox. One of yesterday’s group were lucky enough to experience a yoga session with Cecile Pons. The group were amazing, hopefully the were able to demonstrate some of the moves they learnt. 

Tomorrow is Sports day… proper PE kit is needed (white t-shirts and dark shorts.) drinks and sun hats with children covered in sun cream too!
