A Health Start 22 September

Today got off to a healthy start as we ran a mile round the school field before lessons.

Healthy Eating 4 July

As part of our Healthy  Places project we are moving towards earning the Silver award and, as part of this, we are keeping a close eye on Healthy Eating.  Next week, Mustard Class will be looking at lunchboxes and awarding stickers to those children who have a healthy and  balanced lunchbox.  This will begin on Tuesday the 12th July and will continue for the week.

Some of our children in Mustard Class led an Assembly today to remind the school of the importance of eating healthily.

Typeonesie day 18 November

Today Juniper Class came dressed in our onesies to support Typeonesie day.  We were given a talk by a class member with type 1 diabetes where we learnt all about the condition and how it affects people.  We looked at the equipment needed and got to cuddle the type1diabetes bear which shows all the places where people with diabetes can be injected/tested.

"I didn't realise how hard it must be for her"
"I hope they find a cure"
"I now understand all about type one diabetes and glad that we learnt about it so I know about it."
