As a member of the Healthy Schools scheme, we encourage children to enjoy healthy snack choices for their morning break. Early Years and Key Stage 1 children are provided with a free piece of fruit or vegetables for their mid morning snack, but may also choose to bring in their own fruit/veg portion from home if they wish. Key Stage 2 children need to bring in their own piece of fruit or vegetable from home. Rewards will be given to children spotted consistently making healthy choices.
We have received a special medal and 'Max'-imum Effort Stickers from the Daily Mile Essex support team.
The Medal will be shared between classes and each week a different class of children will be putting extra effort into their daily mile in order to be awarded the medal.
November News update: Each class has had the medal for a week now and it has now been passed back to Owl class. The medal had increased children's motivation to keep running and there has been a lot of healthy competitiveness in order to win the medal. Children awarded the medal wear it in class for the day and recieve a special sticker in our Friday Celebration Assembly.
