Active Schools

Sports conditioning

 All classes are currently taking part in sports conditioning once a week. Here, we are learning and practicing the fundamental skills. We practice balancing, walking, jumping, running, and ball skills.

Rainy Days

In MQI, we even stay active during rainy days! We do rainy day workouts in our classroom if it is too wet to play in the yard.

Yard Time

We love to do a variety of activities during yard time. Some of the activities that we enjoy are football, basketball, skipping, hula hoops, dancing, and we even create our own games with chalk such as hopscotch and activity trails! 

Shake and Wake

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning we do shake and wake in our classroom to start the day. Our Active Schools Committee comes in to help all the rooms with this. We listen to music to help keep us motivated!


Hip Hop (December 2017)

All classes are doing Hip Hop dancing this month! it is so much fun. We get to practice splits, high kicks, and dances to all of our favourite songs. Keep a watch out for our special hip hop dance that we will perform at our Christmas Show on the 20th December!


Witches and Wizards Walk! (October 2017)

For our Halloween dress up day we all looked amazing! We went on a 'Witches and Wizards' walk around Rivermead to show off our costumes. The boys and girls also brought in a donation for this event, which will go towards buying some lovely new PE equipment for us to use during our PE lessons and in the yard at breaktime. You can see photos of our Witches and Wizards Walk in the gallery section of our website.

Fitness Week Workout (September 2017)

We were very busy during fitness week! The whole school participated in a special fitness week workout for schools, by Joe Wicks (the Body Coach). Everybody tried their best to keep going until the end! Check out our photos below.

We also had so much fun during the 'Take On Your Teacher's' Challenge! The students competed against the teachers in musical chairs, a burpee challenge, penalty shootouts and basketball shootouts. You can see photos from this in our school gallery section of the website.
