PE Kit Vote

By Community, Equality, Letters to Parents, Physical Education, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

Earlier this year, we introduced a new PE kit protocol, where children came to school wearing their PE kit. While this change received mixed feedback from parents, we value your opinions and want to find a solution that works best for everyone.

To address the issue regarding PE kits, we would like to invite parents to participate in a voting process. Your input will help us determine the preferred approach moving forward. We have outlined two options for you to consider:

Option 1:

Children bring their PE kit in a named bag and leave it at school. It is the responsibility of both the child and parent to ensure the kit is regularly taken home for washing. Teachers will empty the cloakrooms every half term to facilitate this process.

Option 2:

Children come to school wearing their PE kits.

To gather your votes, Mrs. Cooper and Mrs. Jepson will be sending out a voting poll within the next two weeks. Your vote truly counts and will play a significant role in shaping our PE kit protocol.

Thank you for your continued support and active involvement in shaping our school policies.

Look out for the poll on Class Dojo!

Eating a Balanced Diet

By Physical Education, Science, Sport, Sporting Excellence, Year 5

This afternoon, Year 5 have been learning more about the Eatwell Guide. The Eatwell Guide shows how much of what we eat overall should come from each food group to achieve a balanced diet.
They looked at the components of the Eatwell Guide and thought more about what it means to have a balanced diet. Why not ask them about it at home?

This is part of the Joy of moving Move and Learn Project.

The Great Women’s Euro 22 Reading Quiz

By Community, Physical Education, Reading, Sport, Sporting Excellence, Year 5

UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 starts in England tonight and is set to be the biggest European women’s sport event ever. We are also very lucky to have some of the games being played in Rotherham.

Why not visit the Fan Festival?

This morning, Year 5 took part in the The Great WEURO22 Reading Quiz via a webinar. We got 100 percent in the quiz.

We have also drawn teams to support during the tournament to make it more exciting. (Although we all have England as our first team!)

Let’s hope for an exciting start tonight.
