Pupils complete the challenge

Pupils complete the challenge

Recently our pupils took part in the national Mile a Day challenge. The Challenge involved Over 1780 schools – with more than half a million children taking part!

All our pupils managed to complete the mile. Before pupils took part we discussed the benefits of regular physical activity and how it can improve our physical and mental health. Pupils loved taking part and during discussions, they reflected on the benefits that the daily mile had and would love to continue this in the future.

Pupils designed their very own colorful ‘Race Badges’ with a sentence about why they do the mile a day.

Felicity in FS2 wrote “I do my daily mile because I like to keep healthy”

Oliver in Y4 wrote ” I do my daily mile to relax in class”

Well Done to all pupils that took part.!

Meet Tess - Our Bear of Sheffield!

Wow, wow and wow! Please meet Tess, our Bear of Sheffield!

Lilly and Mrs Woodcock have been working hard this week on creating Lilly’s design and the end result is amazing! 

I’m sure I can say this for us all, that we are so proud to have this bear with our name on for everyone to see. 

We cannot wait to see him on the Bears of Sheffield hunt in the summer! 🐻

We've raised over £1600 for Sheffield Children's Hospital & Charity

We've raised over £1600 for Sheffield Children's Hospital & Charity

Our staff and students recently stepped up to the challenge and walked 10,000 steps to help raise money for Sheffield Children’s Hospital & Charity.

Many of us got involved over the week to get our steps in, and we have managed to raise almost £1700 in total. 

We chose to donate to this charity as it is a charity close to our heart – having an ex-student currently battling Leukemia, and many of our children and staff having used the hospital in recent years. 

Mrs Hicks said: “We have chosen Sheffield Children’s Hospital to raise money for this year as it means a great deal to a lot of our staff and students, past and present. Especially for an ex-student, Harrison, who is currently battling Leukemia and is being very well cared for by Ward 6 at the hospital.

“At Christmas, we sponsored a snowflake which was lit up on the side of the building, and we had the challenge of raising £1000 to have our name on the snowflake. To get this amount, we decided to get the children active in lockdown by walking 10,000 steps in a week and so many children took part to raise money for the charity.

“As a school, we have managed to raise almost £1700, which is amazing!

“We are also taking part in the ‘Bears of Sheffield’ where we have to design and paint a large bear. The bear will be designed by a student and placed in Sheffield for the public to see, so watch this space!”

Well done everyone!
