After learning about how the Ancient Mayans developed and ate food such as corn, sweet potatoes and cocoa, we put our taste buds to the test and sampled it for ourselves.
We’ve made light work of our science unit. This week we looked for the spectrum of colours using prisms of glass and investigated how shadows are made and whether or not they change shape.
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.

Our year 5 and 6 children, alongside the choir, visited St Andrew’s church this week to deliver their Christmas performance. The singing and readings were wonderful and all the children showed such a respectful attitude being in a Christian building. Well done everyone!
