Healthy Living Week 2018
What an exciting week we have had learning about how we can be more active and healthy!
Healthy Living Week started on Monday when Chef Darren from Roots to Food visited the school and hosted a workshop to teach the children about the nutritional values of food and the importance of maintaining a healthy diet. During the workshop two teams consisting of a teacher and small group of children all cooked a healthy and delicious meal.
The red team lead by Mrs Taylor made a sensational dish of Pesto Salmon Fishcakes with Spinach, Parmesan Pasta Shells and Red Devil Chutney.
The green team lead by Miss Scannell created an esquisite dish of Pan Fried Coronation Chicken, Coriander Rice and Aloo Bombay. The smells around the school were out of this world!
In the style of Ready, Steady, Cook! Each team had 15 minutes to prepare their dish for members of the audience to try. There was lots of excitement in the hall for both teams as the clock ticked down! Footage from the cook off can be seen below;
Congratuations to both teams for their fantastic dishes and a huge thank you to Chef Darren from Roots to Food and ISS for arranging this event! All recipes can be accessed by clicking the links at the end of this article. Photos from the event can be seen in our photo gallery by CLICKING HERE!
On Wednesday and Thursday we welcomed a Bhangra workshop into school to demonstrate the art of this traditional indian dance. Both staff and children took part in the workshops and throughly enjoyed learning all the moves!
Daily Warm Up
Every morning this week the children took part in a daily warm up excercise on the front playground lead by Mrs Redmond and a motivating group of Year 6 children. The song of choice for the workout was Dimelo by 2017 X-Factor champions Rak-Su . The children had lots of fun re-enacting the dance moves as seen on the show (our staff also had a little boogie too!).
