The Bodycoach Live School HIIT

We will be doing the Live Primary school HIIT each day this week with the Bodycoach so remember your PE kits each day!

Monday’s HIIT was a great success and a huge well done to our Primary 1s who worked particularly hard during their first HIIT!  The Primary 4/5 are using their maths skills to work out their ‘resting heart-rate’ and Primary 6/7 calculated their ‘fat burning  rate’ to work out how many times their heart beats to be in the range for gaining fitness and strength.

Sports Day at Uplawmoor

The children worked in their houses to gain lots of points towards winning  the prestigious House cup (to be revealed on Tuesday). The rain stayed off and the staff, pupils, friends and families had a great time spectating and taking part in a variety of sporting activities. Well done to the winning house on the day – Libo!

Cross Country Champs

Pupils from Uplawmoor went to Rouken Glen park to compete in a cross country race. The runners were Toni, Jodi, Ashley, Mckenzie , Dylan, Adam, Christopher and me! We all did very well and finished the whole course.  Our running club is now finished and it’s been great fun.  Thanks to the parents who joined in with us on our final session.  Great effort!  By Alex Goldie P5


Friday Dodgeball Event

dodge-ball-vectorThe children can come to school dressed in their sporty gear tomorrow for our all day dodgeball event organised by the pupil council.  Children must wear suitable clothes for sport so no jeans and no heeled shoes please.  The children must be warm enough during playtime outdoors, so please remember to wear jogging bottoms if you plan to wear shorts during the day.

We look forward to playing against you all tomorrow!

The boys and girls are enjoying a week of sporting activities and healthy eating presentations to tie in with our Health week. Mrs Crawford has been extremely busy organising a variety of unusal sports for the children to try.  Today we had a go at Muay Thai and listened to the P6/7s assembly about the hidden sugars which are in our favourite foods.
