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”.

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.
