Healthy eating week

This week is healthy eating week and of course, in Willow and Ash, we wanted to raise awareness of healthy living. To begin, we discussed ways to encourage a healthy lifestyle, in which the children recognised that we need to engage in levels of physical activity. Therefore, we decided to head outside and compete in a game of dodgeball.
The game became very intense, with the children's heart rates racing and their truly competitive sides making an appearance. At one point, Godswill was left to represent Willow class, whilst Jack Dempsey was left to represent Ash class.
After taking part in sport, we also recognised that in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, we need to have a balanced diet. This includes a range of foods, from carbohydrates, fats, protein and fruit and vegetables, as long as the fats are eaten in moderation. As you can see, the children also realised that they needed to drink plenty of water in order to stay hydrated and control the temperature of their bodies.
