A Taste of School Life: London Parliament visit 2018

Members of the School Council had a very special day out in London. The day was focused around a visit to Parliament which included access to the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Children also gained access to the famous number 10 door at Downing Street and saw many London landmarks such as the London Eye, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, New Scotland Yard, Horse Guards Parade and Trafalgar Square. All staff were extremely proud of the children's behaviour, enthusiasm and attitude on the day.  

A Taste of School Life: Sport Relief 2018

Templenewsam Halton had a fabulous Friday on March 23rd celebrating Sport Relief 2018.

Children were split into their houses in order to take part in six main sporting activities throughout the day. Points were allocated to the house that performed best in these. The day started with a whole school Wake up, Shake up on the playground (won by team Apollo). Further sports activities included an energetic and exhausting Zumba class (won by Endeavour), Curling lessons and competition, Martial Arts with Mr Singh (won by Endeavour), a Creative Classroom and a Step Challenge which set each house the task of collecting the most steps whilst travelling around the school grounds (won by team Voyager with 5675 steps). In addition to all of this, we set a cycling challenge to the whole school. This involved keeping an excercise bike moving all day. Staff and children took turns on the bike and were more than up for the challenge, not only did they keep the bike cycling all day but they achieved a whopping 86 miles distance whilst doing it!  To end the day we first streamed the Curling final via a live link up between two areas of school. This was incredibily exciting for the children and staff watching on the big screen in the hall and was eventually won by team Discovery by a very narrow margin over team Endeavour. After that, children and staff took part in a Templenewsam version of A Question of Sport which was also won by team Discovery.

All children in school were fantastic and really enjoyed the range of activities on the day. Two houses, Discovery and Endeavour, shared the title of overall house winners for Sport Relief 2018.

Of course with Sport Relief being about charity we would also like to say a huge thank you to all children who brought in a donation which helped the school to raise a brilliant £430. A special mention must also go to Sophia and Eleanor Hirst who donated £10 which they collected after completing a week of sporting activities which ended with them both running to school on the friday.
