The start of the school football league is well underway.  This season the children will be playing in our new blue and white strips.  Our games will be played around other schools in Washington or on our school field.  Family and friends are welcome to support our team in all games. 

‘Be Safe, Be Fit and Be Healthy’  Whole School Curriculum Week

During the week beginning Monday 17th October, Blackfell followed the theme of ‘Be Safe, Be Fit and Be Healthy.’ Our curriculum was directed primarily on these three areas. Teachers and other agencies worked together to ensure the children had a fun and educational week learning about and participating in a variety of health, safety and fitness activities. Teachers tailored their lessons around a range of related areas and issues: staying safe on the internet; stranger danger; road safety; people who can help us; a healthy lifestyle/diet and keeping our bodies and mind fit. The RNLI, a demonstration chef, The Lifestyle and Fitness Team, Hoopstarz and Glo fit all helped to ensure that this was a fun and active week. Additionally, children from Nursery through to Year 6 competed in our Sponsored Stepper Challenge with the aim of achieving a class average of 8000 steps. Pupils wore a pedometer for the day (Nursery for a half day with the goal of 4000 steps); it was great to see so many children around the school and playground attempting to keep as active as possible.

The staff at Blackfell regularly apply the school ethos of risk-taking, resilience, resoufulness, relationships and reflection into all P.E and sports lessons.
