The boys and girls tasted different types of fruit and vegetables in school everyday for 16 days in a row. Children received stickers and a variety of rewards from their teachers for their efforts. Well done to parents for filling in the ‘home diary’ and keeping track of your child’s fruit and vegetables that they have eaten at home.
In January, children will be given fruit and vegetable lunch boxes. They are encouraged to bring in their own fruit and vegetable each day and their progress will be recorded in the classroom on wall charts. Children will receive a variety of certificates upon reaching certain goals. Please encourage your child to bring in fruit and vegetables in their lunchboxes so that they can reach their class targets.
Many thanks to all the parents, teachers and children who have made the Food Dude Initiative a success in St Kilians!
Active Schools Week 2017 took place from the 24th to the 28th of April.
The children were very active all week and received active homework every evening.
They began each morning with their wake up and shake up in the school hall and lots of parents joined in. We had sports visitors to the school, a penalty shoot out and had a danceathon on Friday and all classes were involved. See photos of active week below.
During Health and Wellbeing Week in September children engaged in yoga, mindfulness and drama activities. All children went on a walk to Newlands Park.
During Maths Week all children were actively involved in a maths trail around the school grounds.
During Biodiversity Week children went on a nature walk and discovered mini beasts and their habitats as well as identifying trees near the playground.
For Halloween children dressed up and danced to the ‘Monster Mash’ and did the ‘Skeleton Dance’.
In November, 1st and 2nd class children went on active schools walks to the park!
