Health Week 2021
This week is ‘Health Week’ and despite the restrictions we are faced with, we are determined to continue with this. Therefore, the afternoon teaching sessions this week are all focused on how to keep ourselves and others safe and healthy. This a very important part of our year and forms one of the key areas of our school’s curriculum offer (which you can find at https://www.stannesrc.net/learn-by-heart/curriculum-1/curriculum-1-1). The topics that will be covered are: healthy eating, online safety, road safety and mental health. The children will also be given physical tasks as well. We appreciate your support in encouraging your children to participate in these activities.
St Anne’s are going the extra mile!
As well as exercising and learning how to stay safe & healthy, we will be raising money for Airedale Hospital & Community Charity. We chose the Airedale Hospital & Community Charity not only because it’s relevant with it being Health Week but because of the amazing work everyone at Airedale Hospital is doing through these difficult times that we’re in. If possible please support us by donating money, either in the envelope provided and drop it into school, or directly through the JustGiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/stannesschool
We've already raised a huge £735 through this Justgiving page which is fantastic. We're aiming for at least £1000. This amount of money would enable Airedale Hospital & Community Charity to purchase and install a set of special light up ceiling tiles in Airedale hospital's paediatric theatre to help calm children who are undergoing anaesthetic.
As a St Anne’s community we will be ‘going the extra mile’ to support those who have supported our community so amazingly well through the pandemic. We will do this in the following ways:
Virtual bike ride
During the week, the staff will be taking part in a virtual bike ride in school; taking it in turns to cycle on an exercise bike. You will be able to track how far they have managed to ride by following us on Twitter @stanneskly and/or keeping an eye on this page. Join the live sessions at 2:30pm every day for a story read by a member of staff whilst they cycle!
Staff & children in school
In school, each class will be doing exercise daily and keeping track of the distance they travel - having a healthy competition with the other classes at the same time!
Staff, children & parents at home
We are asking all of our community to ‘go the extra mile’ and join in at home. Whether you’re cycling, running or walking, keep track on how far you’ve gone and let us know either through Twitter (by tagging us @stanneskly) or through the Google Classrooms. On Google Classroom, you’ll have an assignment titled ‘I’ve gone the extra mile’ - upload a photo of you exercising and a comment telling us how far you went (this could be a screenshot of a Fitbit or Health app from a parents iPhone). Then we’ll add these distances to the staff’s cycle distance.
However you choose to donate, you’ll get the chance to guess how far St Anne’s can go in that week. Either add your guess onto the slip provided if returning an envelope with money, or add a comment to the JustGiving page. There will be prizes for the families who guess closest to the distance travelled.
