Daily Workouts for Children and parents
We all know how important it is to stay fit and active. In these strange times it is becoming increasingly more difficult to stay on track with your fitness (parents and children). So Mr Marsh has started designing some daily workouts that children and parents can do together or the children on their own.
We would love to see as many people take part in these sessions as possible. If you give one a go let us know and we would love the share it with everyone :)
COVID 19 update - Swimming
Sadly due to the new national restrictions that are being put into place from the 5th November, we are no longer able to go swimming. We will be following the government guidance and will start up again as soon as its safe to do so.
Skip to be Fit
The result from Skip to be fit are in. Everyone did amazing and we are so proud of them all. Some children and staff were aching for a couple of days after. See below table for the results!
|Whole School total||64,378|
Well done to everyone who took part and sponsored someone on this great event!
Bidbury sponsored skip
On Monday 12th October, alongside our #helloyellow day we will be participating in a sponsored skip. The children will be paired up with someone from their year group and will take it in turns to log the amount of skips each child can do. This is a great opportunity for the whole school to raise some money and participate in some outside fun. Lets get skipping Bidbury!!
Year 3 Tennis
Year 3 have been focusing on tennis in their PE lessons. We have seen a huge improvement in everyone and love how well the children work together. We started with throwing and catching, improving the childrens co-ordination. We've started using the rackets and practising forehand and backhand shots.
Year 5 and one year 4 class are learning about hockey in their PE lessons. If anyone would like the opportunity to go to a hockey after school club please see the post below.
We are trying to encourage healthy food in our school and with everything that is happening in the world, now is the best time to start. We are only letting children eat fruit at break time and encourage adults to promote this with their young people. If you would like any support with healthy food ideas please contact the office. Mr Marsh will be able to give you suggestions on foods that are healthy nutritious and affordable.
Lunch and break time
Our lunch and break times have developed lots over the last couple of years. We have children, trying new sports/equipment and getting to do things that they may not have the opportunity outside of school. Its unbelievable how fast the children pick up new skills
Year 6 are now doing zumba for the next 8 weeks, and already enjoying it. Zumba is a fitness program that combines Latin and international music with dance moves. Zumba routines incorporate interval training — alternating fast and slow rhythms — to help improve cardiovascular fitness.
I love seeing how disciplined and great the children are in karate. Karate is the perfect practice for getting the most out of life physically and mentally. The various self-defense techniques that you'll learn will help you develop physical strength and keep you body fit and flexible. Karate isn’t just for learning self-defense, it’s also great for your overall health and well being.
Parent fitness has been amazing from the start of the year. We have had lots of new parents starting and we having lots of fun. We have a great workout that is suitable for everyone. If your interested in coming but would like to talk to someone, find Mr Marsh and ask any questions.
Its so important that children are active and try sports. I think this poster really sums it up.
