Wk ending 18.10.18

It was healthy and active schools week this week.  The children have had a fantastic time completing loads of different physical activities, tasks in the classroom to help them think about being healthy as well as meeting a Paralympic athlete!
 
The week started with a visit from Melissa, a paralympian who got a bronze medal at Rio Paralympics.  She was hugely inspirational and told the children about what she does.  The children felt inspired by her and came away thinking that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
 
On Monday the children took part in tri-golf whereby they had a taster of the basics.  They learnt to hold the club and hit a ball to a target.  On Tuesday they busted out their best dance moves in a dance session.  They loved their skateboarding session on Thursday, showing them that there are so many different things they can do to be active.
 
They became food detectives in science designing their amazing healthy lunch boxes.  On Wednesday's open afternoon the children carried out an investigation to find out how much sugar is in popular drinks.  They couldn't believe there is 26g of sugar in flavoured milk, which is more then the amount of sugar they should have in one day!  As well as exploring physical health we talked about the importance of mental health and carried out some self-esteem boosting and mindfulness activities.  
 
They finished the week outside with an outdoor learning session lead by Miss Small in our forest school.
 
All in all, a busy and exciting week of activities.
 
Have a great weekend and half term,
