Being Healthy – themed week 10 July 2023

Monday 03 July 2023

Our next whole school themed week, based around Being Healthy, will be taking place from Monday 10th July. This is the second of two themed weeks in the year.

In our Being Healthy week learning will be based around how to be healthy, physically and emotionally.  A variety of events and visitors are planned to help us deliver this key aspect of our Living and Learning education. Children can come in PE kit for the whole week.

As part of the week, you are invited to watch your child take part  in our ‘Sports Roundabout’ event on Monday 10 July 1.15- 2.15.  Come and see your child work as part of a team.  For our Key Stage 2 children, you’re invited to come to our competitive sports day on Friday 14 July 1.15 – 3.30.

On Tuesday 11 July, Year 3 and 4 are going on  a trip to Magna but the rest of the school is going to be having a go at some yoga!  We’ve also got an assembly by the Mindmate team on this day who will be offering advice on mental health and wellbeing.

D:side will be delivering medicine and drug education sessions to all our children on Wednesday 12 and Thursday  13 July.  The content of these sessions will be age appropriate but will cover some important information.

This themed week is a good opportunity to think about a healthy way to travel to school.  We encourage children to use an active and sustainable method of transport, maybe parking further away from school (The Buffers or the church carpark), scooting, biking or walking to school.

Can you help?

If your job involves an aspect of health and you can support our Being Healthy themed week by coming into school, please contact the office to pass on your details.

We will keep you up to date about events during the week through website posts. We are looking forward to a busy healthy week!
