Looking after the body and mind is important for our health. Taking part in regular excercise, or being active in other ways, brings many benefits to our physical health as well as our mental wellbeing.
Through this unit, the children will learn that in order to help us feel resilient we need to live a well-balanced and healthy life. When we feel ‘down’, being active is sometimes the last thing on our mind. However when we adapt an active lifestyle, fuel our body with proper nutrition and respect our bodies by allowing time to rest and relax, it can lead to a longer, healthier and more fulfilling life.
Our Upper School Nurture group had a successful morning at Pizza Express, Fort Kinnaird. We were learning about good food, tasting fresh ingredients, and even got to make authentic, Italian pizza! It was a tasty trip for all!
Our current Building Resilience Unit is called ‘Make a Difference’. The main focus of this unit is on the importance of contributing in big and small ways to make a difference to individuals, our community and our world. This deliberate attempt to do a good deed, without expecting anything in return, has a very positive impact on our self-esteem.
Castleview Primary School Netball team has been meeting every Monday after school. They have been enjoying learning new skills, playing as part of a team and playing games against children from other schools.
They had great fun last Monday playing in a friendly mini tournament. They worked well as a team and show good sportsmanship.
If you are in P5-7 and would like to join the netball club then please see Miss Whitefield or Miss Carter for a letter.
Primary 7 had great fun at the halloween disco. They enjoyed playing games and dancing to the spooky music. The children all dunked for apples, pinned the wart on the witches nose, fished for ducks and enjoyed eating the healthy scary food.
