We are embracing “Healthy Eating Week ” next week at Philpots. We have lots of fun and exciting things for our students to be part of.
A Selection of weird and wonderful fruit will be delivered to classrooms on Monday morning for the students to try and will have a sensory tasting sheet to fill in for this activity.
On Tuesday we will be encouraging the students to engage for 30 minutes in a new activity. The activities on offer will be “Boostfit” (dance to modern music with mental wellbeing and positive vibes encorporated. Students will be offered hand massages, further dance activities and Yoga. Both staff and students will be running a “Philpots Mile” around site during lunchtime.
On Wednesday we will be having a whole school picnic and providing healthy options to all. These include things like fruit kebabs, salads, noodles and a wide variety of options for all. Our Cookery Students will be making some lovely dishes to add to the picnic.
Thursday is our “Get Active Day” – This will include a penalty shoot out and football sessions, Balloon tennis for our younger students, and some bleep tests with Stuart.
Friday our focus is around “Drink Plenty” – One of our students will be doing a higher/lower sugar in assembly and this will then be followed by a celebration of the involvement and achievement of the Students over the week. We will be giving out water bottles to those students taking part in healthy eating week and encouraging them to always stay hydrated.
