Healthy Eating Week at Exwick Heights

What a week we’ve all had taking part in Healthy Eating Week. Children have been learning about the importance of keeping hydrated, the need for fibre in our diets, looking at swapping snacks for healthier ones, finding out what a ‘portion’ of our 5-a-day actually is and debating lots of scenarios here across our school. Everyone has also taken part in ‘Keep Fit with Rick’ – a 10-minute walking aerobic activity – every morning. Year 6 led the ‘Keep Fit with Year 6’ on the field with year 1-6 and the Foundation years took part from their classrooms. We had pompoms and 80s music which gave everyone a buzz!

Wednesday saw the return of our fruit days. Funky Fruit Day saw copious funky designs and eaten at break time which is great to see the children bringing in a variety or fruit to talk about, look at and eat.

We’ve had a fabulous week and thank you to all parents who have encouraged their children to take part, talk about their days and supported them with their Funky Fruit designs!
