‘Water is Cool in School’ Competition

This week in assembly the children will be learning about the benefits of drinking water. Therefore this week’s homework will be to create a poster about the benefits of drinking water on a regular basis. We would encourage children to complete some research to support their posters, information, ideas and links to other sites can be found on the ‘Water Aid’ website. We are asking all children to complete their poster on an A4 piece of paper (available from school if required).  The poster must be informative and attractive and children should use coloured pencils but not felts.  For this activity, we are also asking that children do not use a computer to create their poster. The top two posters in each class will win a prize and be displayed.  Everyone who enters will also earn five house points for their house. All posters need to be completed by Tuesday 23rd May in order to be judged.

Water is Cool in School – Reminder

Children are regularly reminded about the benefits of drinking water on a regular basis and the importance of bringing a water bottle into school during the day.  Pupils have access to fresh drinking water in school that can maintain children’s health, improve their concentration and therefore help their learning.  Sweet drinks are less healthy than water and can damage teeth. Even sugar free squash can be acidic and damage teeth.

We ask all parents to provide their children every day with a labelled bottle of water. These can be refilled during the day from the water fountains in the classrooms. We are not suggesting that you buy bottled water; tap water is equally good!

Please consider the following points:

  • to prevent bottles getting mixed up,  a permanent marker or washable label can be used to label bottles with your child’s name and class
  • non-spill sports-style caps avoid mess if a bottle is accidentally knocked over
  • bottles can be taken home daily for cleaning and refilling
  • children can chill their bottles of water overnight so that they stay cool during the morning

Fruity Friday

Every Friday is ‘Fruity Friday’, a chance for children to purchase a pot of fresh, mixed fruit.  The cost of each pot will be 50p.  Thank you to the parents who have volunteered to help prepare the fruit on a Friday morning.  It would be greatly appreciated if any other parents/carers would be interested in helping out!

Cross Country Tournament

On Wednesday 12th October, children will be competing in the inter-schools cross country tournament at 12:30pm at Blackwood Showfields.  All children who would like the opportunity to take part have been involved in school trials organised by our PE coordinator, Mr Lloyd.  This will enable us to select children who will take part in the finals.  Parents/carers will be very welcome to attend the event.
