The Juniors went skipping mad today at the launch of our ‘Skip 2 b fit’ Programme for 2017-18.
Each class took part in a skipping session with a difference involving ropes with counters, timed challenges and a fruit pot of blueberries!
Skip 2 b fit’ is a fitness programme that encourages the children to practise skipping every day and improve their score over 6 weeks with a weekly timed challenge.
This promotes health and fitness and gives the children a chance to improve on their personal best both in skipping and school life in general.
We look forward to sharing our Skip 2 b fit news with you over the next few weeks and even inviting the parents to join our Junior Challenge!
We welcomed Engage 4 Africa to school today.
The children in years 2,3,4 and 5 all enjoyed a football coaching session.
Thank you all for your kind donations.

The Deli-Bar serves healthy sandwiches with a choice of bread and fillings each lunchtime.
For the price of a normal school dinner, children can choose a sub, dessert and drink.
The children in St Elizabeth’s Nursery had a special treat – Acorn Farm brought some of their animals to school to meet the children.
All the children had a fantastic time making friends with chicks, ducklings, hens, sheep, goats, rabbits and guinea pigs.
