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.

We finished off the week with some yoga to relax and chill out.
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.
This week, some of Y2 were invited to an athletics event run by some students from SHU at Ponds Forge. We set off on the tram and couldn’t wait to get started. Lots of other local schools had been invited too! Once everyone has arrived, we made a start.
We completed lots of different events to practise our skills. We even had a go at some brand new activities too! Javelin was definitely one of our favourite activities of the morning.
At the end of the morning, we found out who had taken 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
We were so pleased to hear that Prince Edward had come into 2nd place! We are very proud of ourselves and we can’t wait for the next invitation to join in with more sporting activities.
Across school, we have been thinking about how to keep ourselves healthy. We have had lots of visitors in school and activities to complete to help to promote a healthy lifestyle. Take a look below to see what we have been up to…
Yoga is a good way to exercise both our minds and our bodies. Check out our yoga moves!
If you want to do move yoga at home, look at Comsic Kids on Youtube for more ideas.
We absolutely loved our Active Mission Session with Errol. It was so much fun trying to get around all of the different activities. Our favourite activity was trying to hit as many lights as we could in just one minute! The record was 32 set by Mateo!
We got to use exercise bikes with smoothie makers on the front to make some delicious smoothies. We had to pedal as fast as we could to blend up the fruit and the yoghurt before we were able to drink them. They were really tasty and it was fun working together to making different smoothies!
Mrs Murch spent some time with us looking at PANTS. Ask your child about what PANTS means.

As a special treat, Y1 and Y2 were invited down to Park Academy to complete some Multi Skills activites for the afternoon.
We had lots of fun, trying out lots of different activities and working together in teams.
Thank you to the adults who came to help us and Craig Malkin for organising it. We can’t wait for the next time!
This week, Miss Varley had an extra special surprise for us. For our PE session, we got to work with Ash from the Sheffield United Community Foundation.
He taught us for to dribble and pass between a short distance and by the end of the session, we were able to put these skills to the test when we split into 4 teams and had a game of fottball against each other.
We can’t wait for our next session with Ash.
‘Little steps… Big control’
This week, we have been learning all about how to keep safe. We moved around the different classrooms and learnt about safety in different ways from all of the KS1 teachers.
First we went to work with Miss Duddle and we were learning all about how to keep safe with our bodies. Exercise is very important to keep us fit and healthy. We also learnt about eating the right kinds of foods to help us to keep fit and healthy.
Next we went to work with Miss Mason and she taught us about how to keep safe in school and around the house.
After that, we went to work with Mrs Wells and learnt what we need to do in an emergency. We used role play to act out different scenarios.
Finally we worked with Miss Varley to learn all about fire safety. We learnt that there are good and bad types of fire. We practised how to STOP, DROP and ROLL if we were ever in a situation where our clothes were on fire and then we worked together as a class to create some fire safety rules. These are proudly displayed in the classroom. Have a look next time you come in.
How to continue the learning at home:
- Speak to your child about how to stay safe around the home.
- What are the differences between good and bad fire?
