MINUTE TO WIN IT – GAMES and HEALTHY FOOD CHOICES

This week it is 

HEALTHY CHOICES WEEK

at our school.

Our Integrated Studies topics Healthy Living, Healthy People and Commonwealth Games have allowed us participate in many new and exciting activities.

As you can see from previous posts we have already completed many interesting activities on healthy eating, including dental and oral hygiene.

Today was no exception!

We had a fun afternoon playing five different “MINUTE TO WIN IT” games. We learnt that although some of the games looked easy, it wasn’t until we really tried them, that we discovered they were really quite difficult, and almost impossible! We also learnt about group co-operative skills, and that just playing games can help our fitness whilst having fun at the same time!

The rotation activities included, rolling marbles down a table, rolling a ping pong ball down a tape measure into a glass, maintaining a feather in the air without touching it, bouncing pencils into a cup and blowing a deck of cards off the top of a glass!

We hope you enjoy watching our short video!

BENEFITS OF HEALTHY EATING – A WELL BALANCED PLATE

As part of our healthy eating topic, we designed some plates for art.

We piled them full of proteins, carbohydrates, vegetables and salads.

We used crepe paper to design the food on our plates.

We enjoyed completing this art activity.

When we finished, we wrote our poetry, to reflect what we had learnt! 

We hope you enjoy reading our poetry, and viewing our art.

Don’t forget to watch the video on the benefits of eating fruit and vegetables

at the start of this slide show.

 

Dental Health and Oral Hygiene

Today, the 5/6’s had a special talk

from two visitors from the Dental Health Clinic.

This incursion was part of our Integrated Studies topic,

Healthy Living, Healthy People.

We learnt so much today and we know

we have to look after our teeth because we want them to last!

We were also very happy to each receive a toothbrush and toothpaste.

Thank you.

Another busy and exciting day at our school for the 5/6 students.

Today we took part in four fun activities

which took up all of the morning.

We were divided into four groups and

we rotated between each activity every half hour.

The activities included –

HIP HOP, ULTIMATE FRISBEE, JUGGLING, TAEKWONDO

Everyone had a wonderful time and it gave us

the opportunity of trying out some new sports.

Healthy Food Choices

Our first week of Term 3 has been a busy one.

We have spent a lot of time discussing healthy food choices.

What should we put on our plates?

How do I balance the types of foods I put on my plate?

We hope you enjoy watching our first Voki Presentation.

PLEASE BE PATIENT AS THE VOKI LOADS ON EACH PAGE. 

LISTEN CAREFULLY.

What’s on your plate? – Healthy Eating!

Hi everyone,

I hope you are still enjoying your holidays!

Now that you have looked at the fun ‘exercise’ video on the elephant doing his aerobics, let’s start to think about what goes into our mouths!

They say that you are what you eat.

So let’s get healthy and think about what we put on our plates!

Watch this video.

It will give you lots of tips on what to put on your plate.

Did you notice all the bright colours on the children’s plate?

Maybe you can try your own combination of a healthy plate.

Maybe you can take a photo of what’s on your plate

and bring it to school next term.

Here is a healthy recipe you can try.

Do you notice all the bright colours in this bowl?
