Health for Life
Welcome to our Health for Life Page!
This will keep you updated on the exciting developments that will be happening in school in relation this this project. Our aim is to encourage our pupils to:
- grow their own fruit and vegetables
- cook healthy food
- make healthy choices when choosing what they eat
- engage in a range of physical activity to help keep them fit and healthy.
It was lovely to share our progress with other school and to see what they have being doing for Health for Life.
Parent and child healthy eating club
Potato Growing Competition
Each year group has started to grow some potatoes in a bag as part of our growing aspect of 'Health for Life', I wonder who will win?
Year 2 enjoyed making healthy smoothies at snack time today! They used strawberries, bananas, grapes, milk and even a bit of carrot! They talked about how dairy and fruit/veg are 2 key areas of the eat well plate.
Last aerobics of the year! Well done to everyone that has attended this year. I hope to see even more of you in September!
Setting up the Allotment
It was a great team effort sorting out all of the donated items to go in our new sheds. We also filled our raised beds with soil so they are ready to go. Well done staff!
Year 3 & 4 Health Workshops
Year 5 Bikeability Training
The whole school got active today! They participated in a range of activities including aerobics, a mile run and sporty games.
Bread in a Bag
Year 2 were first to use some of our new cooking equipment to bake some bread for their Great Fire of London topic. They had the option of adding cheese, pumpkin seeds or currents to their bread which are all considered part of a balance diet on the 'Eat Well Guide'.
In early December (on a very cold day) our 'Allotment Task Force' went down to Hatchford Brook Allotment to disassemble a variety of garden equipment that were kindly donated by a family at a school. Keep your eyes peeled for the progress of our own allotment that will be on our school field over the Spring/Summer terms!
Dress as a Gardener Day
Thank you to all of the children that came dressed as a gardener and donated items for our upcoming allotment.
