Change 4 Life
This week in school (w/c- 26/06/2016) the Year 6 children have been leading the the Year 3 children in their PE lessons. They have been leading them in doing '10 Minute Shake Ups' from the Change 4 Life programme and have also helped them to create their own '10 Minute Shake Ups' to do both on their own and with friends or family. These shakes ups will help them over the summer holidays to make sure they are being physically active every day. Also to assist this the children have been given passports that they can fill in throughout the holidays when they have completed their '10 Minute Shake Up' with the aim of filling it all in.
The passports are a great way to keep both children and adults active!
Please keep an eye out for you child bringing home their Passport pack in the upcoming weeks.

Well done to the whole school on achieving the Silver Award!
At the end of the spring term, 18 children from year 3 achieved their 25m swimming award and 11 children achieved their progress award. What a great achievement! Well done year 3!
A Sports Council has recently been set up at Worlsey Mesnes involving class representatives from year 1 through to year 6. The representatives meet each term to discuss the PE and School Sport provision across the school and suggest ways in which it can be developed and improved. This will mean that children be able to voice their opinion on the PE and sport in school and the provision can be tailored around their opinions in the form of lunchtime and after school club activities. They are able inform the rest of the class on the meeting discussions and are able to voice the opinions of those in their class.
Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby Tournament
On 6th March, some of the pupils from year 5 and 6 took part in a Tag Rugby Tournament run by the Wigan Warriors Foundation. Although they didn't manage to qualify for the quarter finals, they had a brilliant day and represented the school very well. They showed great teamwork and determination throughout the day. Well done to those children!
Just Join In
A couple of children from Year 5 took part in the Just Join In festival held at Wigan Youth Zone on Friday 3rd March.

It was a fantastic day and the children loved getting involved in lots of different activities with children from many other schools.
Y3 Football Tournament
A team of 10 year 3 children, consisting of both boys and girls, took part in a football tournament at the Soccerdome on 24th November 2016 where they played many matches against other schools from the Wigan area.

The year 6 football team travelled to Leigh Sports Village with Mr Pennington and Miss Loveday on Friday 30th November to play in their first football tournament of the year. The team played against other school and local teams in many games and faced some very tough competition. It was a brilliant and very enjoyable day (despite getting caught in a very heavy rain shower), and the team showed great determination and sportsmanship to their other teammates and opponents.
