World Book Day

Today we had fun dressing up as different book characters. Take a look at our fabulous costumes 🙂                    

Healthy Eating

This week the school nurse delivered a session about healthy eating. She helped us recognise the importance of making a healthy choice. We now know which snacks are healthy for us and which snacks are bad for us. We helped Sophia make a healthier choice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We then had a go at sorting the different types of food into two categories i.e healthy/unhealthy.

” Sophia should choose the carrot sticks because they are healthier than the chocolate sticks”.

” Hot chocolate, crisps and cake are bad because they have a lot of sugar and sugar is very bad because it makes our teeth hurt”.

At the end of the day the children received a mini tooth paste and toothbrush.

” I love this”.
