Well-Being Day: ‘Self Care’

Today, the children at Rushall have taken part in the first well-being day of this academic year. Today’s well-being day has focused on ‘self-care’. In classes, the children have learnt that ‘self-care’ is all about learning to look after yourself and it encompasses both our physical and mental health. Physical activity can support your own self-care and make you feel happier. To celebrate, classes were invited to take part in either Yoga and Mindfulness or Team Building sessions with Coach Liam.

Key Stage 1 – Yoga and Mindfulness:

The Yoga and Mindfulness activities focused on the children’s breathing. They inhaled deeply through their noses and exhaled through their mouths. They lay down and watched their cones move up and down in rhythm with their breathing.

Key Stage 2 – Team Building Activities:

These sessions helped the children to think carefully about the skills needed to be successful when working as a team. They focused on developing children’s communication, problem solving and tactical skills.

‘Kids Cup’ Football Competition

This week, children from Year 5 and 6 have competed in a Walsall schools football tournament, at Bescot Stadium. The Utilita Kids Cups are national tournaments for primary school children which offer the once in a lifetime opportunity to play at Wembley Stadium!

Although our team have never played or practised together before, they all played brilliantly. The team played 4 games against: Old Hill, St Bernadettes, St. Giles and Busill Jones. On the day, the team drew three games and lost one. It was a superb defensive effort and both Mrs Binks and I are extremley proud of you all.

Well done to Lionel, Joshua, Fletcher, Wyatt, Miller, Jude, Emily and Tyler-Jai!
