What a week at the RGSGQ! On Sunday students attended the RGS wearing a range of football shirts and were very motivated to participate in football, following Qatar’s success in the Asian Cup the previous evening. Early years students took part in a range of coaching sessions where they improved their control and dribbling skills whilst playing fun games. Key stage 1 and 2 students participated in a football tournament. The winners of the tournament were Year 6 boys and Year 2 Tigers. On Monday students brought into school an activity on wheels. This ranged from bikes, scooters and roller blades. Students then got to show off their skills on their wheels by completing an obstacle course. It was great to see so many Nursery and Reception children being able to ride bikes without using stabilizers.
Tasty Tuesday was an opportunity to learn about, and try, a range of healthy foods. Year 3 and 6 had a “smoothie shake off”, while Year 1 made fruit kebabs and Early Years pupils ate coloured yogurt and fruit. Wellness Wednesday was an opportunity for pupils to learn about having a healthy mind and body. Students participated in yoga in the atrium with Mrs Maines and enjoyed an informative talk with RGS school nurse Odessa.
A fantastic, fun, healthy week for students at the RGSGQ.
