This afternoon the Change4Life children are experiencing eating healthy and different foods.
They had a choice of different fruits, nuts, seeds and yogurt to try. They were all advised to try something they would not normally eat.
They soon tucked into some delicious tasty healthy snacks.
Yum, yum can’t wait
Sampling the food
Ecton Brook went to Great Houghton today to attend Dexterity Dance.
Each school made up a routine and then presented their performance to the other schools.
We all enjoyed learning the routine but we were a little bit nervous when we had to perform it in front of everyone else.

Jump and scream

Yesterday we kicked off our first NPAT ‘Get Staff Active’ games with netball.
It was a great turnout 18 members of staff turned up to play netball at Ecton Brook. Most of us had not played netball since we left school but it all came flooding back. Some staff had never played netball before.
We all had fun and thoroughly enjoyed it, Lings won 6-2, however the score did not reflect the enjoyment, we laughed so much. Our next game is against Abington Vale on Tuesday.

Yesterday Bellinge Tag Rugby Team went to Millway Primary School to compete for the ‘Shield’.
There were 5 teams in our group. We lost 2, drew 1 and won 1 which led to us finishing in 3rd place in our group. Again we improved with every game. The girls in this team were amazing their tagging ability allowed so many ‘6 Tag turnovers’ which proved valuable to their team.
Bellinge Team will now play Ecton Brook Rugby Team next term,
Well done to both teams.

Yesterday was the final day of the Aspirations Group activities.
When we arrived at the Benham Centre, most of the other schools that participated were there. All the schools discussed what they liked the best and what they least liked. All of the schools said the project had helped them grow in confidence, build on their teamworking skills and in some cases some of the children had made new friends.
Pone thing that stood out and was apparent when they were asked ‘Would you do Aspirations again?’, every child said “Yes”.
Likes and least liked
Yesterday was truly an amazing day for sailing. Everything was just perfect. The sun was shining, the wind was just the right amount to take us from side to side, it was brilliant.
The children looked and acted like experienced sailors and did a magnificent job at rigging and getting their boats onto the water.
‘Where does this go again?’
Out we go
