04 May School Junior Travel Ambassadors
Year 4 and 5 took part in whole class presentations to vote for the best candidate for our school’s Junior Travel Ambassadors. After a number of excellent presentations our JTA’s were assigned. Well done to Ayoub Ghazi (Y4), Dylan Smith (Y4), Wasim Chaib (Y5) and Sarah Kerrigan-Illarramendi (Y5). These children will be working alongside Miss Sudworth to plan and deliver activities, assemblies and competitions across the school as part of our Healthy Schools Initiative.
From Monday 9th May until Friday 27th May, our school will be participating in The Spring Stride competition. Many of our children’s weight and physical fitness have been impacted by COVID-19 lockdowns. Nationally, rates of obesity among reception year children have increased from 23.0% to 27.7% from 2019/20 to 2022/21. Among Year 6 children, this figure has increased from 35.2% to 40.9%. It is important to encourage children to participate in regular physical activity to promote good health and fitness. The benefits of exercise can also be seen in the classroom with improved concentration, memory function and self-esteem.
We will compete with other primary schools in Haringey to do 3 weeks of physical activity, our school will be scored on how frequently pupils participate in physical activity and the variety of activity they do. This can be encouraged at home, by engaging in physical activities such as: playing in the park, going for walks and riding a bike.
