A great big thank you to all families for supporting this year’s Sport Relief 2018. The children came to school in their own sportswear and we saw a multitude of differing sports that the children take part in outside of school. It really was great to see just how many children play for local teams and clubs.
The children also took part in a very special assembly, dedicated to our Skipathon. Children had been practising their
skipping throughout the week and we wanted to find the best skippers in each year group. Both boys and girls competed against each other to smash the Cheadle Primary School record of how many skips they could do in 30 seconds. All the children did brilliantly well, including our very youngest children in Reception, who held a hoola hoop event as opposed to a skipathon. At the end of the competitions, I am very proud to announce that Alisha won the title of Champion Skipper in Year 6, and she also went on to match the school’s skipping record with a brilliant 97 skips in 30 seconds! Max was the boys’ champion and Jack won the hula hoop competition.
Later on in the day, we also spent some time on our ‘Walk a Mile’ initiative, as children joined together with all the local Moorlands schools to do their bit for Sport Relief!
Overall, Cheadle Primary raised over £250, which will be sent in to Sport Relief as a combined effort along with the
monies collected from all of the other schools from the Staffordshire Moorlands.
