During Wellbeing Week we all had the opportunity to learn how to look after ourselves as well as being able to experience different sports and activities.
Different sports included: lacrosse, table tennis, taekwondo, archery, volleyball, badminton, athletics, country dancing, Parkour, Rocktopus and an extended obstacle course too! Year 3 went out of school on a Ready to Climb trip where many of the children climbed higher than they thought they could, so well done to them all.
A dentist told us how to look after our teeth; we practiced relaxation techniques; and visited the Health Bus.
Here are thoughts and quotes from some of the children:
Reception Class – “I loved going under the parachute.”
Year 1 – “The band got everyone up dancing and we all had to move around the school. We learnt some new dance moves!”
“I found badminton hard at the beginning as I could not hit with the racket, but I improved by the end.”
Year 2 – “The sprinting was my favourite athletics activity and we had to jump for 5 minutes!”
Year 3 – “Lacrosse is a fun new sport that I am pleased I tried; it was a great experience.”
Year 5 – The children said that they enjoyed soft archery because it could be made easier or harder by standing at different distances from the target and by using different bows.
Year 6 – “Taekwondo was hard and physically challenging but also good fun!”
