During this difficult period there will be times where we will all surely feel the need to switch off, relax or blow off some steam.
Below are some hopefully useful links and suggested activities to support the mental and physical health of yourselves and your children at home.
Sports Day / Joy of Moving Festival
Hi everyone, we hope you are keeping busy and staying active.
This week we should be having our annual sports day, such a shame we can't all be in Victoria Park together, enjoying the sun and cheering on our fellow house team members!
There is however a nationwide festival taking place that we would love for you all to be involved in. We are asking that you put aside a few hours on Wednesday the 20th May to take part.
Below is a booklet that will walk you through the activities step by step. There are games that can be done individually or with others. Parents, you are allowed to join in too!
There are also prizes of £500 up for grabs, you could win them for yourselves or our school. All you have to do is post some pictures on social media using the handles;
We really hope that you can get involved in some of the games and we will look forward to seeing your pictures!
If anybody would like a copy of the booklet emailed to them that is not a problem. It would also be great to have some pictures sent to add to the website.
