Sport Relief – The Big Summit Sofa Challenge Friday 06 March
We are very excited to announce that Scholes (Elmet) Primary School will be the starting point of the BBC’s Big Summit Sofa Challenge on Friday 06 March.
Harry Gration, Amy Garcia and Paul Hudson from BBC Look North will join in with Wake Up Shake Up as their warm-up before they set off at 10am. They will then head towards Barwick, pulling and pushing their red sofa 100 miles, incorporating some of Yorkshire’s biggest climbs. We will be making banners, flags and as much noise as we can to create an amazing send off for the celebrity team.
It would be amazing if we were able to start this challenge off with a generous donation and so we are inviting the children to come to school in their sports kit, in exchange for a £1 contribution.
The BBC television cameras will also be in school to film us and talk to as many people as they can – some may even feature on the news that night.
They have asked that we encourage as many parents, family and friends to stay after they have dropped children off in the morning, so please feel free to show your support and join in with the fun!
Thank you in anticipation of your support.
PE – HIIT fitness with Joe Wicks
Due to a visit from Dog’s Trust, we couldn’t get all the gymnastics equipment out today but that didn’t mean we missed our PE session. KS1 did some HIIT (high intensity interval training) as part of our lesson. The children were so active and we could really feel it in our legs after! Why not have a go at home?
Dog’s Trust Visit
We have found out about all about the great work that the Dog’s Trust do to care for and rehome dogs.
It was interesting to learn about a day in the life of a dog at the centre.
We also got taught some great ways to keep safe around dogs to make us and the dog feel safe when playing, feeding or stroking a dog.
Did you know the dogs at the Dog’s Trust even go to dog school?
They learn tricks and skills to help them become great pets for their new owners.
The Leeds centre rehomed 876 dogs last year. The money you help our school raise will help them to continue to support and care for the dogs, buy toys, blankets, beds and important medicine and treatment.
School Council visit the Dog’s Trust
18 excited school council members visited the Leeds Dog’s Trust centre.
We were guided though the centre with a look behind the scenes.
The staff at the Dog’s Trust were very grateful for our first donation of £517!
Thank you to everyone that donated on our recent film night.
Living and learning : staying safe online
We have been talking about how to stay safe online. Children talked about going on the internet to play games, go on YouTube, iPads, tablets, laptops and messaging – they have a lot of access to the internet. We reminded children how to stay safe by asking before going online, stopping and telling if something upsets them.
Thank you to all the parents and carers who came to our topic review session this afternoon. The children were proud to show off their topic and science books, sharing all the learning they have been doing this half term. They took part in our Topic Review quiz which was great fun. Have a go at home with your child to see how much they can remember.
School Council Film Night
What a fabulous film night we had yesterday!
With your support, we raised over £500 for the Dog’s Trust.
The film last night was so good!
I liked eating the popcorn.
It was great because I got to sit with my friends.
I hope it becomes a regular event.
Living and learning – I know what a drug is
All classes had interesting discussions today about drugs and medicines. Below are some of the things they said.
A doctor tells you how much medicine to take.
You should never take any one else’s medicine.
Some drugs are illegal and you can go to prison if you have them.
Alcohol and cigarette are drugs.
The children are continuing to enjoy their gymnastics-based PE lessons. Today we focused on balancing and stretching.
