This year as part of being a 'Healthy School', we are continuing to focus on Oral Health.
We will have a whole school oral health themed day this term where all children will take part in cross curricular activities linked to looking after our teeth.
EYFS pupils are brushing their teeth every day as part of the 'Teeth Team' initiative, and we use a song which helps us to remember to brush for the full two minutes, click here for the link to the song to use it at home, too.
Take a look at the photos below...
Farmers Market Autumn 2018
It was great to see such a fantastic turnout at our Autumn Farmers Market and we are sure you will agree that the children have worked very hard! The children have worked hard in gardening groups to grow the produce that is then used in making the products for the farmers market, including; carrots, potatoes, rocket, cress, parsnips, onions, beetroot and lavender. We also have our chicken monitors who take great care of the school chickens and help gather the eggs which were also used. Some of the things on sale this year included:
- Potato Wedges
- Spick Parsnip soup
- Vegetable Soup
- Apple Crumble
- Beetroot cake
- Lavender bags
- Cress heads
We are looking at ways to develop the farmers market for the Summer term and are hoping to offer opportunities for parents and carer’s to sell their own produce and homemade items.
Packed Lunch policy;
A healthy packed lunch consists of;
We will not accept fizzy drinks, sweets of any kind or chocolate bars.
Within school, we like to promote a healthy lifestyle which includes fitness, too. Children enjoy a variety of exercise in school through taught sessions, after school clubs, brain breaks and also their play times.
If you would like to take part in some fitness challenges at home, visit Darebee which is a great resource!
Children also love GoNoodle which is suitable for all ages and includes a mixture of dance, coordination, stretching, motor skills, balance, mindfulness amongst others!
As a school we continually support children to develop healthy behaviours and last year, Rise Park was awarded a 'Health and Wellbeing' accreditation.
Below are just a few of the things that are have been in place within school which contributes to our health-promoting environment.
