Year 2 Geography

In Year 2, the children are learning that a compass is a navigational instrument which shows us directions (North, South, East and West). The children put their knowledge of compass directions to the test by exploring key landmarks in our playground. In addition, the children labelled the compass points using a word bank and used their knowledge of directional language to plan a route to Heaton Hall.

Healthy Lunchbox Workshop

We had another fantastic parent workshop this morning delivered by the Healthy Weighing Team. They offered so much advice on healthy eating and healthy lunchboxes.

One key piece of information that has stuck in my mind is portion size. See the below guide for the correct guidance we should be offering our children, this also applies to adults.

Eat well guides…

Key points to remember from the session…

•Offer 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day – eat the rainbow

•Provide 6-8 glasses of water or sugar free squash a day.

•Take notice of traffic light system on food packaging

•Be mindful of portion sizes

•Limit processed foods and try to offer foods as close to their natural state Consider frozen fruit and vegetables – these are much fresher and often cheaper!

Why not try one of the healthy lunchbox recipes.

Thank you to our parents for attending.
