Wake Up Shake Up


Since the 2016 the school have introduced  'Wake up, Shake up' sessions during the day.  We have  noted that children are starting these sessions more enthusiastically than they had approached the previous 'Activate' programmes. It has been noted that children who had previously not taken part in morning activities are now happy to join in with their peers. 


Staff have  commented on higher levels of concentration and children who are more ready to listen and learn after participating in a session. We are working on collecting a wide range of resources to enhance this using songs from films and popular culture that the children are aware of.
