Health Week in P2B

Posted on

P2B have had a fantastic Health Week! We have loved learning about healthy food and Mrs Smith’s mum came in to chat to us about the importance of good food! We got to cook our own nutritious lentil soup and delicious cheese scones. Some of us were brave and tried some new fruit and veg and it was great fun making our own fruit craft creations 🙂

Get Active – Building Resilience 

Posted on

Looking after the body and mind is important for our health. Taking part in regular excercise, or being active in other ways, brings many benefits to our physical health as well as our mental wellbeing. 

Through this unit, the children will learn that in order to help us feel resilient we need to live a well-balanced and healthy life. When we feel ‘down’, being active is sometimes the last thing on our mind. However when we adapt an active lifestyle, fuel our body with proper nutrition and respect our bodies by allowing time to rest and relax, it can lead to a longer, healthier and more fulfilling life.  

Family information will be sent out shortly.
