Healthy Me From Head To Toe!
21st - 25th June 2021
After last year's entirely virtual event with the majority of children still operating by remote learning, it was brilliant to try and reclaim our themed week in some form. This year, School Sports Week, Healthy Me Week and Sports Day were all combined into the one week so as to allow the maximum in different activities. As well as our Sports Day (see Sports Day page for report), we had an intra school Sports Week. As competition between schools is still restricted, we instead had daily challenges that the whole school could engage with. These included a hoop shooting contest, a keepy uppy challenge, a healthy menu activity and a Change4Life aim. Children completed these in different ways and prizes were awarded in class for the winners.
Along side these events the children also took some time out of their days to look at being active and living a healthy lifestyle. This could have involved a Sports based DEAR (drop everything and read) half hour. Some work on diet, mental health, or on the value of sleeping and exercise.
Please see our social media feed for some of the activities that took place, and well done to all the children for embracing the themed week so well!
24th - 28th June 2019
Our Sports week this week was quite topsy-turvy, it began in bright sunlight, had two washed out days before finishing again in the shining sun! Throughout the week the children will have been having sports/physical/mental health themes to some of their work for example homework or in PSHE. Each class also had a visit from Sarah Colquitt, she is a mindfulness instrutor who worked with the children focusing on the theme of transition and moving on. Whilst some children were taking part in this the rest of the class were busy making healthy smoothies in class using our smoothy bikes! As with any good school we just had so much going on that these activities have spilled into the following week for some classes!
Also last week is a series of sports competitions for the children to attend. On Monday we took part in the Adventure run at Winsford Academy. A selection of children from KS2 had to overcome obstacles and challenges to complete a course working together as a team. Tuesday and Wednesday saw golf, tennis and rounders washed out but luckily some of these will be re-run and the Year 2 class had their multi-skills event a few weeks ago so as to accommodate all of them attending. Thursday morning was the turn of YR/1 who took part in a Balance Bike festival building on the balance bike work we have set up this year in school. In the afternoon Y5/6 children enjoyed a successful duathlon. Finally on Friday we were represented by KS2 in both Hockey and Tag Rugby tournaments with results awaiting. Hopefully this active week will continue to inspire children to be physically and mentally active for the rest of the summer and beyond!
25th - 29th June 2018
What a week. In line with National school sports week we also held our own in house 'Heathly me from head to toe' week. In school we had a variety of events going on. Some classes took part in a session called 'Food and Mood' looking at how their diet can affect their behaviour and energy. We also had 2 smooth bikes on site. Each class had a chance to fill these up with a mix of fruit and veg then get peddling to create their own tasty and healthy smoothies. Finally we had two visitors in school as well, Holly and Sarah, who worked with all the classes for a mindfulness session considering how to look after ourselves both mentally and physically.
Outside of school we took part in a range of competitions with other schools in the area, some with pathways to finals, some without. On Monday we had the Y2 multi-skills festival, the Y3/4 Try it Challenge as well as the KS2 Adventure run challenge after school. Tuesday saw us visit Vale Royal abbey for a tri-golf tournament where our Y3/4 team came second and only just missed out on reaching the finals in Macclesfield. After school we also took part in the Y5/6 mini tennis festival. Wednesday, another scorching day, saw us win all our matches at the rounders festival at Leftwich High School. Thursday proved too hot for the duathlon to take place (currently being re-arranged) but we did have for the 1st time a YR/1 balance bike festival which was great fun. Finally on Friday we rounded of the week with another strong performance at the QuickSticks Hockey tournament over at St. Nicholas where we again won all our matches! Very proud of all the children for their efforts and spirit in some blazing weather!
