This half term, our focus has been on Healthy Living.
Did you know that there are lots of different ways to live a healthy lifestyle?
- Be physically active every day
- Eat a healthy diet
- Brush your teeth at least once a day
- Visit a dentist regularly
- Drink lots of water
- Get at least 8 hours sleep a night
- Look after your mental health and well-being
In school, we have been completing lots of different activities to help us to do this.
We kicked off the week Active Mission and Errol and had 3 minutes on each activity. It certainly got our hearts racing by the end!
Dr. Hobbs came into to do an assembly for us on how to live a healthy lifestyle too!
Our activity was with the St. John’s ambulance team and they taught us how to make an emergency phone call.
Mrs Murch taught us about PANTS and we had fun with Pantosaurus.
P – Privates are private
A – Always remember your body belongs to you
N – No means no!
T – Talk about secrets that upset you or make you feel uncomfortable
S – Speak up, someone can help.
If you would like more information about PANTS and the Underwear Rule from the NSPCC, click here.

We finished off the week with some yoga to relax and chill out.
This half term, we rolled up our sleeves and made some yummy treats for the Macmillan Coffee Morning. School raised over £400 in total so a massive thank you to all of our parents and carers who kindly donated money towards this cause.
This half term we have been so lucky to have the team from RuggerEds come back into school and teach us how to play tag rugby!
We braved the weather most weeks and went outside onto the MUGA pitch so that Rob, Olly and Joe could teach us some excellent rugby skills. We absolutely loved the games you taught us. Our favourites have to be Minions and Haunted House.
At the end of each session, certificate were handed out to the Trainers of the Week. The lucky winners are below.
Thank you so much to the RuggerEds team for coming into school on a Friday morning. We will miss you lots.
A fabulous well done to all of our Superstar Writers of the Week for Autumn 1.
