The children have been working hard to be more active, drink more water, making healthier food choices at lunch and for their snacks and learning about how to have a healthy body and a healthy mind.
We have been fortunate to have external sports clubs come into school this week to run activities with the children. Year 3 and Year 6 had gymnastics classes with Flip and Kicks gymnastics club. Year 2 took part in some Kung Fu classes with Master Yang and Club Football has been in over the week to deliver fitness and football sessions to the children as well. A big thank you to these coaches for coming in to school to help promote our healthy and active week and contributing to its success.
Early Years and Key Stage one were joined by Heyrobics instructor, Britney who showed us a number of different ways we could get active during our assembly. The children put all their effort into the sequences she taught as a range of music played across the hall. Every child in the hall joined in and our heart rates had definitely risen by the end of the session. It was fantastic to see that every child walked out of the hall smiling and energised.
Club Football are running World Football Skills Camp over 2 days on 30th April/1st May which is open to boys and girls born from 2002 to 2007. If you are interested in signing up to this or would like further information please email

Year 4 have been learning about how exercise affects our heart rate in their science lessons. The children planned experiments to find out how their pulse rate increases after a little exercise, a lot of exercise and seeing how long it takes for their pulse rate to return to normal after exercise. They evaluated their results and found that after exercise pulse rate increases, as the heart needs to pump faster to get more blood around the body and to the organs. They also identified problems with their experiments and analysed whether it was a fair test. They realised it was hard to control variables such as different speeds and pace at which some children had during exercise was different between participants. However, they were able to see a correlation between increased heart rate and amount of exercise.

We have also been learning about advertising. The children have planned and designed adverts to promote healthy eating and exercise. They filmed these using the green screen and shared their work in the assembly on Friday.
