1st June – 5th June
Next week is Health Week at Catrine Primary. Your teachers have been working hard to create activities and challenges that have a health and wellbeing focus. We would love for you all to participate in these activities and share your learning on your Glow blog.
6th of June
On Friday 6th, we are going to be holding a virtual sports day. Each class will have their own set of races and challenges and we would love for you all to take part. There will be family events, pupil events and of course a staff event. So keep your eyes peeled for that!
I have listed the races and challenges that you will all be involved in down below to give you a chance to organise some of the materials that you might need (and maybe have a cheeky practice – I won’t tell anyone). Your class teacher will provide you with more details of your races, on the individual class pages. The races are slightly different to what you are used to. We have had to think of alternative ways to do the races in our garden. They are much more exciting and we know that you will have such a fun time participating in the races!
