Health and Fitness
Our Trust is always keen on involving our children, young people and families in activities and events to improve health, fitness and general wellbeing. Recently our schools have been involved in the following activities and events:
Meadowfield Primary have had their annual health and well being week where they have developed the Trust skills of self responsibility. One of the activities was to cook a meal using only a set amount of ingredients. The judges had a lovely time walking around and sampling the food. This supported Trust values of democracy, self help and solidarity.
Everyone at Meadowfield got to have a turn on the climbing wall and some children really tested themselves and went higher than they ever thought they would. This was great for developing resilience.
Self help came to the fore when Meadowfield children investigated about teeth brushing and how to make sure they have the cleanest and healthiest teeth possible. It was a fun way to learn about this!
Corpus Christi Primary School's Mini Tennis Team and Mrs Waide recently visited Corpus Christi Catholic College to compete in heats against other local schools. Magnificent performances were demonstrated by Voldi, Harrison, Amy, Lily and Victoria which secured them a place in the partnership finals. Well done Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School Mini Tennis Team and Mrs Waide! Everyone at school is so proud.
On Thursday 3rd March 30 Corpus Christi Primary School children from Year 4 also took part in the Schools Skipping Festival at Corpus Christi Catholic College. Everyone had a fantastic time and the children proudly represented their school. All staff were very impressed at the improvement all the children have made. It looks like we have some very talented skippers! Well done Year 4!
Bikeability are back again at Colton Primary School giving all their children throughout school the opportunity to learn to ride their bikes safely and to promote a healthy and active lifestyle. Recently Colton had a new scooter shelter built in the playground as more children are coming to school on their bikes and scooters which is great!
