Health & Wellbeing Week in Kells Lane
This week we have had our Health and Wellbeing Week with the focus on being healthy – both inside and out. First, and foremost, I would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents that volunteered and gave up their time to come in and work with the children across a variety of areas. The level of effort and planning that went into your activities was amazing and the children really enjoyed their sessions as well as gaining a lot of knowledge from them.
We have had a range of activities from mindfulness and peer massage to professionals who work within the healthcare system, both physical and mental health, helping our children to see the many benefits from a healthy and active lifestyle. Years 3, 5 and 6 also had the opportunity to try out a variety of combat disciplines in combat confidence sessions.
We also had Marcus from Cycling Generation in throughout the week carrying out fun activities based on healthy heart and healthy eating as well as turbo maths; linking maths with fitness. It has been a great week, which the children have thoroughly enjoyed and have taken away much to think about as well as ideas for activities and ways they can help keep themselves healthy.
