Healthy Kidz Global Challenge

Healthy Kidz remain committed to ensuring that all pupils remain active throughout the duration of the school closures by providing a vast array of content via their YouTube channel and various Social Media platforms, as well as free access to their revamped Healthy Kidz App for children to record their activity.

You are invited to sign up to the Global Challenge. Go to the Healthy Kidz website before next week’s Challenge begins (Monday 6th April). The link to sign up to this FREE initiative is https://healthy-kidz.com/healthy-kidz-global-challenge/. Previous usernames and passwords are not required. Many families connected to our school have already signed up and are taking part in this current week’s challenge.

Please also note that if a pupil manages to record a 7 day streak on the App, they will be in with a chance of winning some great prizes. This week’s winner will receive a Fitbit Advanced Health and Fitness Tracker, while next week’s prize will be a StatSports Apex Athlete Series GPS Performance Tracker (RRP £250).

Good luck to all who enter!

Numbers’ Day

Numbers’ Day

.

There were numbers everywhere today, helping us to spread the important message, “Speak Out, Stay Safe”. Even Buddy the NSPCC mascot made a return visit to help out.

We hope you enjoy catching a glimpse of some of the activities we were involved in around the school. Watch out for more pictures in the local papers this week.

A big thank you to family and friends for sponsoring the children in their Dance- athon and to our student teachers Miss Hearty and Miss Murphy who led all the classes through their dance moves.

Finally a big thank you to Mrs O’ Hagan our Numeracy Co-ordinator for organising the day and promoting a love of Maths with all the boys and girls.
