Active School Week

posted in: Active Flag, School News | 0

Active School Week is a really enjoyable part of the school year for the school community.  This year, because of COVID-19, it was not possible for it go ahead.  Instead, we invited families to participate in the national “Active Home Wee”’ from the 27th April to 3rd May.

To engage in the challenge, children found four different ways of being active, every day, aiming for the recommended 60 MINUTES, or more.v They were encouraged to try something NEW, have FUN with a family activity and to ENJOY the week!  Check out some of the fun activities our pupils participated in.

We hope everyone enjoyed taking part and trying new activities.  It doesn’t have to end today, you can keep yourself and your family active in the days and weeks ahead.  Keeping active helps to promote our health and happiness.  Remember Taney Parish Primary School says “DON’T DELAY, BE ACTIVE TODAY”.

Habitat for Humanity 6 a-side Hockey Tournament

Six Taney teams comprising of both boys and girls from 4th Class took part in the annual Habitat for Humanity Fundraising 6 a-side hockey tournament on Tuesday 4th February in Wesley College.  It was a fantastic afternoon, with plenty of great hockey played and oodles of fun.  All teams did very well in their groups.  One of the Taney teams made it to the final against Whitechurch having beaten Kill of the Grange in the Semi- final.  They played extremely well and it was a great, and very close game, but were unfortunately defeated by just one goal.  It was great to see such fantastic school spirit with all the Taney teams staying around to cheer them on in both the semi final and final.

Active body, healthy foods.

Sixth Class recognise that being physically active is extremely important.  However, it is also vital that we have a balanced diet as our bodies need a variety of foods so that they can grow, repair, give us energy etc.

We conducted research and designed a web page that encourages children to eat healthy food and snacks.  We presented our findings and some of us even whipped up samples for the class to try!  Our wonderful web pages, with suggestions and recipes are available to view on the Active School Notice Board.
