Our Science project ‘Healthy Living’ encourages positive lifestyle choices as well as promoting healthy eating and warning against the effects of drugs and alcohol. We talk about diet and that it is ok to eat unhealthy foods but only in moderation. We will also receive visits from PC Lisa and take part in a number of health related activities throughout the year, such as Red Nose Day. In year 5 we also participate in the Daily Mile programme to encourage exercise every day and a number of after school clubs are offered to children who wish to participate in active games.
In Year 5, our children are given regular opportunities to explore their own wellbeing and build a repertoire of mindfulness techniques including breathing, yoga and understanding their own emotional intelligence. We encourage our children to discuss their feelings and emotions and to build a personal tool kit to help them cope with challenging everyday situations.
