‘Remember: kindness matters most’
Joe Wicks PE lessons have been so popular with our pupils, and with pupils all over the world. We know that keeping active is especially important at the moment, and maintaining physical health keeps our body healthy, as well as giving the ‘feel good factor’.
Mental wellbeing is as important to us as our physical health, particularly in recent times. So try taking 5 minutes out of a busy, or tiring day to practise 5 minutes of mindfulness – focusing on the present moment. Mindfulness can relax your body and mind, creating a feeling of calm.
Have a go with Tai chi – you can practise outdoors or indoors.
You’ll soon pick it up, and it could become as much a part of your daily routine as… brushing your teeth! Our pupils thoroughly enjoyed it when Ilona, a local Tai chi instructor, gave us lessons during Health and Wellbeing Week.

Harton Primary school members of staff didn’t want to miss out on all the fun! Who will win the main prize? The video was shown in our whole school assembly and a restaurant voucher awarded to our judge Mrs Seales, and our winner.
Watch our video and see!
Thanks to all involved in the production of this video.
Congratulations to Morning Nursery, YRB, Y1H, Y2E, Y3L, Y4C, Y5J and Y6F.
The winning classes were delighted with their prizes! They received a class cookery book and will choose a healthy recipe from it to bake with Mrs Seales, our Cook. Delicious!
We have welcomed so many fantastic visitors and coaches to support us during our Health and Wellbeing/ Anti-bullying Week 2018.
Elizabeth Wright shared her wisdom and inspirational life with Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 during a number of presentations and workshops this week. She told us about the nature of her disability, and that it had not stopped her from achieving her goal of participating in the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games. In fact, despite some setbacks, she persevered and against the odds, took the Silver Medal! All of our pupils listened respectfully to Elizabeth’s story and message, asking some great questions and completing some fantastic follow up work about aiming high.
We have been raising money for Children in Need. Thanks go to our talented staff for making us delicious Pudsey cakes and biscuits. There’s something for everyone here!
Mr Robson and Mr Lumley from NWL started off our Health and Wellbeing Week with a Water Talk. We discovered all of the many health benefits of water. There are lots of shops now that will fill up your refillable water bottle for free, which will hopefully encourage people to stop buying single use plastic bottles.
We are showing how much we support Odd Socks Day and Anti-bullying Week by wearing our wrist bands, and by donating the proceeds to the Anti-Bullying Alliance charity.
