These physical activities include an aerobics workout, a skip-a-thon and a dodgeball tournament! Children will also undertake literacy activities to promote physical exercise.
  • Special assembly for children delivered by the ‘Welsh Hearts’ organisation.
  • Lessons for all year groups about ‘germs’.
  • Lessons for all year groups about ‘e-safety’.
  • School nurse talk to Rainbow Class and Silver Class about headlice.
  • School nurse talk to Gold Class about personal hygiene.
  • Dental nurse talk to Rainbow and Silver Class on oral hygiene.
  • Mindfulness workshops for Gold Class pupils led by a qualified trainer.

This is in addition to other recent activities:

  • First Aid training for Year 5 pupils provided by the police community service.
  • Year 5 pupils met with Caerphilly Community Wardens to pledge their support for the local community.
  • Whole school handwashing provided by Caerphilly ‘Healthy Schools’ team.

A letter will be sent home at the end of this week encouraging children to collect sponsorship in support of the Welsh Hearts organisation.
