Sports Relief on Friday 23rd March (sorry for error!)

As part of our drive to maintain, promote and engage pupil interest in sport, we will be fundraising for Sports Relief as a whole school on Friday 23rd March. All children will participate in a range of physical activities to raise awareness and money to support the charity.

On this special day, your child can to come to school dressed in appropriate sports clothing for a sport that they do, for example karate uniform, dance t-shirt, football shirt. If your child does not participate in a sport outside of school then they can come in wearing active wear.

We invite you to make a donation of £1 for your child to wear their own sports top or active wear. This money will go towards the amazing work that Sports Relief does. ​

Health and Wellbeing

This half term our Health and Wellbeing focus is feeling safe and happy. This is part of the emotional strand of Health and Wellbeing.

We will be learning about what emotions and feelings are and how they can make us feel. We will look at different ways we can improve our feelings, as well as other peoples.

We will be teaching the following skill: how to find the positive in a situation.

TV Advert
As you may be aware the NSPCC have been broadcasting a TV advert to raise awareness of how parents can help their younger children keep safe from child sexual abuse. If you’ve missed it, you can watch it here:

Parents’ Pack for PANTS message 
The TV advert directs parents to the PANTS campaign, used in schools for many years. There is now a pack for parents to use, to encourage them to have a conversation that many might feel uncomfortable about having. Information is also available in Welsh and for children with a hearing impairment. The link to the parents’ PANTS pack is here:

Pantosaurus App for iOS and Android
The NSPCC have also teamed up with award-winning animators, Aardman to create a free app, for both android and iOS, featuring the Panatsorus characters. There are four mini games where players test their skills against Pantosaurus. The app is great fun to use, although I’m rubbish at mobile games and struggled with the basketball game!
