Joe Wicks Workout

Here at St. Paulinus we take exercise seriously to promote healthy body healthy mind. We've adopted the Joe Wicks workout so we can join in with other schools throughout the UK.

 

This 20-minute workout is suitable for everyone. You can do it at home and there’s no equipment needed; if you’re unsure about your fitness, speak to your doctor first. It involves short bursts of really hard work, followed by periods of rest.

 

The circuit

You’re going to do 30 seconds of work, followed by 30 seconds of rest. Take more rest if you need to: focus on the intensity while working.

Running with high knees

Keeping a nice straight back, jog on the spot, lifting your knees really high and pumping your arms as you run. Keep going for 30 seconds.

 

Burpees

From a standing start, put your hands on the ground and kick your feet back so you’re in a press-up position (make sure your back is straight). Jump your legs forward so they’re near your hands, then jump up in the air. That’s one burpee. Do as many as you can in 30 seconds.

 

Power squats

Like star jumps, but with an exaggerated wide squat at the bottom, with both arms and legs bent, and your elbows touching your knees. Keeping a straight body, lift your arms either side of your head, elbows bent. Then jump your feet apart, bending the knees, before jumping back. It’s all about speed.

 

Mountain climbers

Put your hands on the ground, legs behind you in a press-up position; make sure your back is straight and your bum isn’t in the air. Now run your knees in to your chest in turn.

This week we held a sums and buns drop in session for parents to attend during the school day. The aim of this session was for parents to experience first hand the mathematical process within their child's year group. With over fifty parents attending it was a huge success and we received some great comments.

 

 

All parents who attended ‘Sums and Buns’ were asked to comment on their morning in school. Here are some of the wonderful comments!

 

“Informative and interesting to be shown methods that are used in schools to implement at home ”

 

“Opened my eyes to new techniques which I shall be using to improve my child's abilities”

 

“Very engaging lesson also very helpful for parents to understand the school methods”

 

“Enjoyed it. It helped me learn new ways of helping my child”

 

 

We were overwhelmed with the positive comments we received from parents.  We are very proud of our children and our staff – they really allowed their talents to shine over the morning.  Every comment we received was positive so we will be continuing with our parent workshops throughout the year as we can see they are a really positive experience for both adult and child – not to mention the adults can get a lovely tasting bun at the end!

 

Finally a huge thank you to all parents/carers who were able to attend, it was appreciated by children and staff alike.

Fire Safety Training

To ensure our children had a good grasp of fire safety the whole school received some fire safety training from our local fire services. Our key stage one children made some fire safe posters ahead of the bonfire celebrations.

They were many great outfits but we could only choose one winner and our lucky winner dressed as Mary Poppins deservedly received a book.

Fun Run 2017

 

Every year the children at St Paulinus raise money for school by taking part in a school fun run.

The children get the chance to dress up and run raising funds for the various promotions throughout the school. This year was no exception and the children didn't disappoint.

 

Some of the children were presented with a certificate for collecting the most sponsors.
