A really brilliant article from Run England celebrating the first year of School Gate Running in Elm Park School.
Mrs Cathie Walsh has been the driving force of this initiative and led the running in the Sports Relief Mile earlier this year. She leads parents on a Wednesday morning at 9.00 a.m.
Many thanks to Cathie and all of our participants!
Yesterday, 23rd June, Elm Park School conducted their own European Elections. The returning officer was Mrs Bond and children were taught the procedures of how to vote. Both sides of the debate were discussed in class and the vote took place!
After the ballot box was opened and verified, the majority of the children decided to REMAIN! A completely different result to the general British public.
Oak class followed up the vote, by creating their own newspaper articles on the British results. Some of the headlines created were amazing: Bonjour Boris! Gone for Good! Bye Bye Brussels! C EU Later!
Have a look at these really useful online safety checklists. Created by Vodafone, they are full of family friendly hints and tips.
Sports Week has made a fantastic start. We have had fencing lessons with Year 5 and 6 and today Year 3 and 4 learnt a little about archery. With our main event – Sports Day – tomorrow, we are having a fantastic time! Pictures to follow.
There have been glorious smells coming from the school kitchen over the last 4 weeks, as Year 3 have been taking cookery lessons from Debbie Moore our school cook.
Vegetable lasagna was on the menu last night and as an extra surprise the children were the first to wear our new Elm Park School Cookery aprons! With a huge thank you to Mrs Trott for her kind donation, the children (and Debbie) will go home as clean as when they arrived. I think that they all look brilliant!
Many thanks to the adult helpers – we couldn’t do it without you!
We had a brilliant day raising money for Sports Relief.
We started by inviting parents and friends of Elm Park School to ‘run a mile’ at 9.00 a.m. Beautifully led by Mrs Walsh, who is a leader with Run England (and takes our Wednesday School Gate Running Club) , the adults warmed up fully before parading infront of the whole school. The children formed a cheerleading huddle and the run began. Mrs Walsh ensured that no one was left behind, whilst her son, Noah, led the way. Teachers and teaching assistants joined in and the field was buzzing with noise and excitement.
During the morning Mrs Anderson and Mrs Walsh guided the classes, one by one, around 4 laps of our school field (1 mile), with all children giving their best.
The magnificent total raised was £1346.83! Well done to everyone who took part, donated money and organised this event!
