The children in Year 6 have attended sessions this week based upon gang crime. The children thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. They thought about choices, responsibility and the impact of their actions.
The children in Year 6 attended a work shop based upon knife crime ‘No More knives’. They learnt about the consequences of knife crime and who can help them if they are concerned about knife related crimes.
The Health Champions have rewarded children with stickers for those with healthy lunch boxes and raffle tickets were awarded to children for making healthy swaps, for example swapping a cake for a piece of fruit or sugary drinks for water. Children having hot dinners have were also rewarded for having fruit or salad with their meal.
Alistair Gill from Knowsley Schools for Health, trained the Health Champions to become Junior Chefs. The children: learned to chop and cut fruit and vegetables safely using the claw and bridge methods, studied the sugar content of various sweets and drinks (which shocked us all) and looked at the benefits to our hearts of taking regular exercise.
We made healthy strawberry and banana smoothies with Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. The children cut the fruit using the bridge and claw safety methods for chopping. We all all tasted the smoothies and most enjoyed them!
