Week ending 3rd November 2023
This week, in assembly, Kay from Active Families Sunderland, came into school to chat with us about keeping healthy. She was very impressed with how much we already knew! She reminded us of some of the things we should do every day, such as drink lots of water (this gets our brains working), eat healthy food, brush our teeth and get plenty sleep. We will be learning more about this in our sessions in class, in the next few weeks.
You have the right to health care, safe drinking water, nutritious food and to learn about being healthy.
This term, children from KS2 are taking part in a lunchtime Change 4 Life club. The Change 4 Life Programme is a healthy lifestyle programme to support primary school children. It involves lots of fun and practical activities for children, including healthy eating tips, making healthy snacks and participating in team games to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
This week, the children enjoyed participating in team games which enabled them to build up their relationships with the other children, get their bodies moving and to develop their skills in a particular sport. The children who attend the club will be Change 4 Life ambassadors for our school.
Farringdon Sports Event
Play leaders from Farringdon Sports Academy came to Valley Road today to host a sports event for Reception children. Some of our Year 5 play leaders helped too. We had a brilliant time. The children enjoyed taking part, cheering on their team mates and showed off some of their excellent PE skills: running, jumping, throwing and catching. Well done everyone for taking part and being such aspiring athletes.
The Royal Marines
Today the Royal Marines visited our school to work with children from Year 5 and 6. Our trust school Highfield, also came over to join in the fun. We took part in team building games, travelled through a giant assault course and we toasted marshmallows around the fire pit. Come and see us in action.
We took part in an athletics festival with other schools. We learnt lots of skills such as, throwing, catching, running and jumping. We had lots of fun and made new friends.
Year One took part in a sponsored skip to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and equipment for our playground. We did lots of different skipping activities such as a skipping replay, long ropes and freestyle skipping. We had lots of fun!
