Collective WorshipCollective Worship takes place every morning, where we celebrate the new school day. Each week certificates are awarded to individuals for effort, achievement, attainment or for being a good, caring school citizen. We also celebrate birthdays during Collective Worship on Wednesdays.
Wake and ShakeWake and Shake sessions are twice daily aerobic routines that the children take part in, in order to develop health and fitness and readiness for learning. A new routine is learned each half term and a school competition is held and the winning class is presented with a cup as 'Wake and Shake Champions'.
Break TimesMorning play times are taken when most appropriate for individual classes. A drink (milk or water) and healthy snack (from home or purchased from the school healthy tuck shop) are consumed during the morning.
Afternoon breaks are Active Breaks and are taken when appropriate for individual classes. They consist of learning skipping skills, traditional playground games and aerobic activities designed to develop fit and healthy individuals. All children should have a named school water bottle in school in order for them to have access to drinking water during the day.
