This term we have been introducing the daily mile across the school. This initiative is widely used across primary schools nationally to improve health and fitness. We encourage children to walk around the playground for ten minutes and, if they choose to, they can run. Children are encouraged to set their own personal target. This can involve doing more laps in the time, or can be to encourage others to get involved. Children are enjoying the activity which takes place at the end of the morning session. Children are encouraged to have a drink of water before and afterwards.
Parent consultation meetings will be held week commencing 24th February.
KS1 (Reception, Year 1 & Year 2) parent meetings will take place on Monday 24th February (2.00pm – 5.00pm) and Tuesday, 25th February (3.30pm – 5.30pm).
KS2 (Years 3 – 6) parent meetings will take place on Monday 24th February (3.30pm – 5.30pm) and Tuesday 25th February (2.00pm – 5.00pm).
Parents will be able to book their appointments via the school website in early February. More details to follow.
Last week we went on a sporting adventure. We played Kwik cricket. Some of us were batting, some of us were fielding. After you hit the ball you had to run from cone to cone. We were competing against ten other schools. We came second. It was in a large sports hall. It was very loud because lots of people were shouting to cheer on their teams. We had a wonderful time!

On Tuesday 21st January we went to Wrekin College Sports Hall for a basketball competition. The year 5/6 team was Immy, Nell, Miley, Jack & Malachy. We did our best but unfortunately, we didn’t win the tournament. A big thank you to Miss Munt for taking us.

On Wednesday 22nd January we went to play a football match against Newdale. The players were Tilly, Annie, Annabelle, Poppy, Sophie, Abigail, Lucy, Emme & Nell. Unfortunately, we lost 3-1. The player of the match was Tilly, as she scored our goal. Thank you to Mrs Bletcher and Miss Munt for supporting us.
