Well done to all the children who took part in the Litter poster competition organised by the I.C.E. group. You all made such a huge effort and no doubt will continue to spread the message about how important it is to look after our environment. Thank you to the I.C.E group for getting the children involved and to Anna for presenting the prizes to the winners. Congratulations to you all!

The Daily Mile initiative is still up and running. On rainy days, however, running/exercise takes place within the classroom, so as to avoid unnecessary illnesses.
Each class is currently undertaking the ‘Active break Every Day challenge’ for the month of February. Both classrooms are making wonderful efforts to incorporate a running, dance and exercise break into each day. Check out www.gonoodle.com or ‘Brain breaks’ on Youtube to get an idea of what we do to wake up our bodies and minds! A
For one week in March (TBC) ,each child will track their own physical activity, using a special chart. The aim of this activity is to encourage children to accumulate at least 60 mins of moderate to vigourous intensity physical activity daily. I ask you to please encourage/join your child in this exercise and sign chart when week is complete.
Anyone interested in helping out with supervising a skipping challenge,
please let me know.
We are delighted to be hosting a Zeeko workshop about Internet Safety next week in our school. Zeeko provides Internet safety talks for parents, teachers and pupils. We hope to raise awareness of issues with the internet and we hope all in attendance will gain actionable insights so students can safely benefit from the Internet. Topics covered on the day will include Cyberbullying, Digital Footprint, excessive Screen time, Inappropriate content, Strangers online and Online gaming.
We would strongly encourage ALL parents to attend , if at all possible.
We are excited about our commitment to incorporate multiple exercise breaks into our daily routines. We have always been very good at doing exercise breaks to reinvigorate our bodies and minds but for the month of February, we aim to get 3 varied exercise breaks into our day. If you fancy trying out some of our dance breaks, check out the following example of brain breaks by the Learning Station. Plenty of fun promised!something all the family can do together!
