learning, living, loving and laughing
We are really pleased to have been awarded with the Healthy Schools Status!!
We try to promote health and wellbeing for all of our children and staff.
Our PSHE curriculum, after school clubs, school lunches, Forest School and PE lessons all contribute to the health of your child.
We will continue to make Healthy Schools a priority for 2017-18, including the addition of three themed multi-cultural days in which
the whole school will take part in a variety of activities. We will also be introducing three seasonal whole school country walks.
Congratulations to our Year 6 pupils who have completed their Playleader Training Course. The playleaders will be around to help
on the playground at breaks and lunchtimes, organising play equipment and games.
AUTUMN WHOLE SCHOOL COUNTRY WALK
We have spent a lovely morning as a whole school on our first of this years seasonal country walks. We enjoyed a 2 mile walk
around our local area. Everybody got their wellies on and off we went to appreciate the beautiful Autumn weather and our lovely
surroundings. Our new reception children walked the whole two miles and our pre-school unit joined us for the first mile.
Fresh air and physical activity that everyone can enjoy!
HEALTHY SCHOOLS AWARDS CEREMONY
We were delighted to be invited to the Essex Healthy Schools Awards Ceremony which we attended with two of our Year 4 Healthy
Schools ambassadors. We went to The Central Baptist Church in Chelmsford for the ceremony which was also attended by local
councillors, the Mayor and Mayoress and Olympic gymnast Brinn Bevan who gave a very inspirational speech and showed us his
medals! We had a great day and shall continue our commitment to healthier living and learning at school.
HEALTHY SCHOOLS AFTERNOON
To continue our commitment to being a healthy school, we decided to hold an afternoon of activities linked to the areas we are
focusing on. We worked in our house teams and took part in a rotation where everyone could enjoy all the activities on offer. One
room was used for nutrition and healthy eating, another for well being and mindfulness, there was hedge planting on the field and
fitness training in the hall. At the end of the afternoon we all came together to listen to a short play performed by Saturn class
highlighting internet safety. A big thank you to the parents who gave up their time to help our afternoon run so smoothly.
