I hope you are all keeping safe and positive at home. I miss you very much so it is great to hear from you on the blog. Have you designed your own Sports Day challenge? Have you keeping scores when completing the challenges? I would love to hear about what you have been doing to stay active. Let me know via your blog!
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. Exercise is extremely important when looking after both our physical and mental health, so we must make sure we are getting our 1 hour of daily exercise, if not more. Sometimes when we are competing in sport and other activities, we can feel upset or angry if we do not achieve. This is where the importance of resilience comes into play... See below to find out what resilience is and why it is extremely important, not just in sport, but in our everyday life!
Keep safe, keep active and keep smiling.
As we begin the summer term, there is one very exciting event on my mind. SPORTS DAY!!! One of my favourite days of the year.
Whilst reviewing and planning the event, I realised I was missing THREE activities for the team events held in the morning. I need your help!
Your task is to design your own sports day event.
I will collect your ideas when we return to school, and the TOP 3 events will be used this year!
Good luck and have fun! Can't wait to see what you come up with.
More links and ideas to help keep active!
The Body Coach is also leading a Live Workout every morning at 9 am which is a great way to start your day and help you feel awake and invigorated!
Brent League Football Champions!
Today, the Y6 boys’ football team defeated Salusbury School, 3-2, to claim the Brent Football League Championship! Our boys got off to a slow start in the first half with Fionn making some fantastic saves to keep the match at 0-0 at half time. After the break, the boys took charge with goals from Kofi, Zak and Kofi again to take a 3 goal lead. Salusbury then mounted a great comeback, scoring 2 goals to make the score 3-2 going into a tense final stage. Thankfully, OLOG held out for a brilliant victory to secure the Brent League! Zak has been named as our Man of the Match for a great all round display. This boys football team is the most successful we have had at OLOG in recent history (at least the last 11 years) as they were runners up in the Brent Cup this season and have now won the League! Well done to all of the boys who played today and who have played in league and cup matches this year. Special thanks and congratulations to Mr Yost for coaching the team through the year.
Photos of the victorious team can be found on the school website under ‘Latest News’ and under ‘PE’
