Healthy Hearts and Healthy Minds

In June,the school held a Healthy Hearts and Healthy Minds week where the children were encouraged to take part in a variety of activities which promoted mental and bodily health.  As part of this the children were challenged to increase their physical activity by walking to school and taking part in a variety of sporting activities. They also did  meditation and learned about the importance of  looking after their mental well being. 

As part of this themed week, the children in Year 5 joined with other schools in our cluster group for a day of activities held a Barnoldswick C of E School.  These activities included:  a willow workshop; skipping for the heart;ballroom dancing;body image and  a Eureka workshop on the digestive system.
