Nothing beats a primary school sports day!

It was a great event, and I want to congratulate House Jericho for their impressive achievement in coming 1st. Well done, Jericho! As a symbol of their victory, the George Felto Cup now proudly displays their colours in green. Additionally, Jericho has earned 100 points for their House.

We are very proud of all the children that competed in KS2 sports day and thank you to all the helpers.

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 daily mile

By Community, Mental Health, Sport, Sporting Excellence

Every morning at 8:30am, Mrs Jepson has been encouraging children to run the daily mile in the junior playground. If your child would like to take part, then sign up with Mrs Jepson.

Teachers are also encouraging children to run the daily mile at play and lunchtime. To help the children keep track of every mile, Mrs Jepson has created a bar chart in the junior entrance hall. Ticking off the miles is very motivating!

Exercise and fresh air are so important for health and well being. So sign up to walk or run the daily mile.

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.

School Games Platinum Award

By Sport, Sporting Excellence

Today we received the excellent news that we have maintained our Platinum School Games Mark.

Here is a message from the School Games Organiser:

St Alban’s Primary excel when it comes to PE & School Sport and fully deserve their Platinum Award for 2021/22. Their offer caters for all children within their school to experience physical activity and sport at a level they are comfortable with – constantly engaging with School Games and key stakeholders to ensure maximum uptake in extra-curricular opportunities. Their commitment to those children who aren’t ready for the competitive environment has been key to their success this year, with their Sports Leaders / Council playing a massive part in ensuring their school offer is current, inclusive and engaging.

Mrs Jepson also needs recognition for her hard work with the School Games and wider physical activity opportunities – she really is the driving force behind their success and the children and staff are lucky to have her as their PE Lead. Well done Mrs J and St Alban’s!
