Here are some of the projects we have been doing to keep our school healthy.
Last Friday Joe Spedding came into school to talk to the children about “Feet First”. This is a County initiative to encourage children to walk, scoot or bike to school. He will be coming into school over the next few weeks to work with the children. This Friday 20th September he will hold a Dr Bike session. Children can bring in their bikes and he will mend brakes, blow up tyres and check if children’s bikes are road worthy. A circular was sent to parents from Joe informing them of his work.
Just in case you did not know, we are taking part in a new initiative to get us all moving called Feet First. Mr Spedding has already been the bike doctor to fix our bikes, and some of us have been on a bike ride around the village. Today is the day for our ‘Wellie Walk’ and just as we thought it was a lovely sunny day, but because we have had a bit of rain lately it was still a good idea to wear our wellies.
We had a great time, we walked right up the hill and back down again! Phew! When we got to the top of the hill we all stood still and used our senses. We stood very quiet for a little while and we heard lots of things we don’t hear in our classrooms. We could hear birds, aeroplanes, wagons, sirens. We could taste and smell the wind and the leaves. We could feel twigs, leaves, grass and mud! We could see for miles, we could see fields, birds and houses.
On a similar theme to ‘Feet First’ Alex Kay talked to the children about being more active. This fits in with our healthy school award. Each week will be carried out on how both children and staff travel to and from school. This will be recorded and the aim is to increase children to be more active both at school and home.
