Due to last week's really poor weather our outdoor activities for active school week had to be postponed. These will now take place on the same week as sports day in June. However all the classes were really busy getting active in doors. All classes were waking up and shaking up every morning and enjoying drop everything and dance in the afternoon. The most active class competition created lots of excitement among the children and teachers with some classes getting very competitive.
Dancing is a great way of building up our physical activity minutes and during active school week we will be playing DEAD to our favourite tunes everyday Here are some you might enjoy. Join in from home and lets dance ourselves fit and healthy.
Everybody at the C.B.S is very excited about their very first active week. We have lots of events planned for the week with Wake Up Shake Up every morning, Drop everything and dance, the goal challenge, walk a mile with a smile, penalties against the principal and a very special visit from athlete Keith White to name a few. A full timetable of events will be displayed on our Active School Notice Board inside the front door from tomorrow morning.
Remember everybody should be getting at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day! Are you? During active school week record your activity in your homework journal and see are you active enough.
