At the Federation of Heavers Farm and Selsdon Primary Schools we aim to be Healthy Schools. It is important that we consider all elements of our work to ensure that we promote health awareness to all members of the school community.
We promote healthy eating patterns to our children at school, by taking a pro-active approach to improving the health and wellbeing of children.
Therefore we do not allow sweets, chocolates, cakes or party bags from home as we have children with food allergies in school and dietary requirements.
We celebrate birthdays in every year group by singing to the birthday boy or girl and talking to them about what special things they might do.
On Friday it is Funky Flat Footwear day, where you can wear a pair of flat shoes to school for a donation of chocolate or £1 towards the Christmas Fair. Remember that your shoes should also be suitable for you to go into the playground!
Harrisons are having a menu change on Wednesday, linking with learning about influential people from around the world.
This afternoon an elite team of Year 5 and 6 children went to Thornton Heath Sports Centre for the Sportshall Athletics.
It was an absolutely fantastic event, with loads of different track and field events. Ranging from “speed bounce”, where competitors see how many times they can jump, two-footed over a hurdle in 20 seconds, long and triple-jumps and different throws to various kinds of relay race.
Our team did fantastically well, competing with some really great teams from other schools, and finished fifth overall. Well done team!
My personal highlight was the boys 6×1 relay, where the Selsdon boys finished neck and neck with Heavers Farm in a very tense race! Well done to our Selsdon boys, who managed to clinch the win in that race!
Have a look at the slideshow below to see pictures from all of the different events!
Well done to all the families that ordered the Christmas cards – you raised £201.50 for the school. FOSP worked hard this morning to hand out everything that had been delivered, so you should have bought your cards / paper / tags home tonight.
This week the sign is ‘when’.
