Welcome to our Blog!
This week it’s our annual Active Sports week! Each day children in all classes will have access to PE, will be active in their classrooms through dance and exercise and will be getting workshops in rugby, cricket and tennis!
All children are also encouraged to Walk, Skate, Cycle or Scoot to school each day!
On Thursday we will be having our sports day (weather permitting!) with children’s engaging in lots of active play and sport for the whole day.
For the week children should wear suitable clothing each day (runners, tracksuit, shorts, sun cream, rain jacket) so that they can participate fully!
Let’s all make this a super Active end to our amazingly active year!
Being Active makes your smile, basketball, swimming or running a mile! #BeActive #ActiveFlag #ASW19
