Eat Well

One of the best ways to support your children in having healthy attitudes towards food is to cook with them. Teach them how to create meals and design menus, allow them to have varied tastes, enjoy manipulating tools and support them in the sense of achievement this creativity leads to.

What fantastic fun!

Children love digging in the mud...why not give them some seeds, and make it even more worthwhile. Not only will they be learning about food and growing, but it is also really good for developing motor skills, for example, handwriting!

Water is Cool in School

This website shows why it is vital for children to have access to water throughout the school day - we recommend that our children attend school with a safe bottle filled with fresh water daily ('Healthy School' drinking bottles and replacement caps are available from Mrs. Whipp in the office).
