We as a family have had a brilliant time with you move. We enjoyed a day out at Blenheim Palace making the most of all the Halloween activities put on. We really enjoyed to do the drumming exercise class after lunch. It was so much fun and the kids at different ages really enjoyed themselves! Now they have done it we would all love to do it again if the opportunity arose. We went not knowing what it was going to be and left with it being the best day if October half term!! We have really enjoyed taking part in the weekly sports activities put on at the local sports centre. Its so nice to have an activity after school that they can all do and as a family. All of the activities were brilliantly adapted so the youngest to the oldest could take part. We have really enjoyed it and its a fantastic positive way to start the week off! Such a fab after school free activity to do and to be healthy together.

A fun, free, smartphone app that offers rewards for exercise.
Get everyone in your community moving with Street Tag and convert walking into Street Tag points (tags).
Why not get your school to sign up? It's quick and easy, and you don't need to be a directly connected to the school. Anyone in the community can select the school and then contribute the points they win for walking to help the school reach the top of the leaderboard.
When playing Street Tag, you scan virtual tags with your smartphone while you are out and about. Every point you get for a tag adds to your chosen school's leaderboard. The app can run in the background, so it automatically collects tags in a 40-metre radius allowing you to focus on your journey and not your phone.
Each game season lasts 12 weeks. In that time, you'll be competing with other schools to hit the top of the leader board and become the winners.
Get ready to start your journey to a healthy lifestyle with Street Tag.
