Healthy Schools Week involved all the children and parents  - it was  such a lot of fun. On Monday, Key Stage 2 children buddied up to work with Key Stage 1 children to think about how to be a buddy not a bully. The older children worked with a younger child to draw around their arm and hand and to decorate it either to match or using the same materials. We talked about what makes a friend and then made a pledge to always be kind and take care of others. Our pledges are displayed in the school hall. 

On Tuesday the whole school took part in our House Cross Country Competition. The weather was perfect for running. The children had to run around the field, up onto the bank and through the Forest School area. Every time a child completed a lap, they collected a multilink cube and placed it in their house’s box. All the children thoroughly enjoyed getting muddy and collecting points for their house. The final score: Elgar completed 244 laps, Masefield 239 laps and Shaw a huge 266 laps.  

Tuesday saw everyone eating a healthy lunch. A huge thank you goes to Dr Kay Burgess and Nurse Sharon Speller who took time out of their busy schedules to visit school discuss healthy eating options with the children. They gave out lots of certificates to encourage everyone to keep choosing the healthy options! 

If you had been on the playground early you might have noticed children, teachers and parents all dancing their shoes off each morning as part of Wake & Shake. It was great to see so many parents joining in, earning those extra house points. 

During the week, Miss Robinson had been getting down, working with all the classes to teach them dance. The Nursery and Class 1 children were fantastic at running around to Bruno Mars’ Run Away dance. Class 2 showed off their jumping skills in Icona Pop’s I Don’t Care. KS2 enjoyed the sports agility dance and learned some Charleston and Salsa moves. It’s been a brilliant week of dancing. 

On Thursday, the whole school donned wellies to get out into the garden and litter pick around the school grounds. Everyone worked really hard and the garden area is now ready for winter. We also have the pond liner in place, ready to collect the rain water from the winter ahead. 

Friday found the whole school skipping. It was lovely to see the Y5/6 children teaching the younger children.

An excellent Healthy Schools Week.
