As part of our health week we organised a ‘World Cup’ afternoon where all the children were put into teams and participated in a few football related activities. Everyone had a great time and at the end of the day the overall results were very close. Mexico and Nigeria tied for third, Spain were second and the winners of our World Cup were Peru!
This week we have been looking at how we can use our leisure time to stay fit and healthy. At Monday’s assembly we found out that the average 5 to 16 year old is spending six and a half hours a day in front of a screen (mobile phone, TV, Xbox etc). We also talked about the importance of finding time for at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day and perhaps having a look at finding a better balance between screen time and physically activity.
The latest gaming craze to hit this country is ‘Fortnite’ and I have attached some information about this game that you may find useful.

Unfortuantely it was too windy to sit outside but we all really enjoyed the canteen picnic.
Just to let you know that on Tuesday 19th June the normal canteen menu is being replaced by a ‘picnic’. Hopefully, it will be picnic weather!
A huge well done to the children who represented the school so brilliantly at this year’s County Sports. Despite the challenging conditions the team ran, jumped and threw superbly to finish in second place, just three points behind the winners! (We’ll aim to close that gap next year!)
As always the children were a pleasure to be with and a real credit to themselves and the school.
Fingers crossed for the blue skies to remain above Alness for our Sport’s Day tomorrow (Wednesday 6th June 2018). If you are planning to come along to spectate please note there will be no access to the school playground or pitch before 12.45pm, as the children are on their lunch break until this point in time.
If it looks like it is going to be a sunny day, you may wish to provide your child with a sun hat and sun cream for the afternoon.
Hope to see you there.
What a lovely way to end the week (and what a super week it has been!). Today saw the return of our very popular Funky Friday. Led by our P7 Junior Sports Leaders the children enjoyed a really good workout in the sun.
