An Academy Council inspired project in school

A big thank you to our academy council members who have been working hard to promote healthy choices in school. The team began by researching what we have in our lunch boxes and following this research invited in Faye from Asda to work with small groups. Today Fay worked with pupils in Reception and Year 5 and practically supported them by showing how to cut fruit safely and encouraged them to think about the healthy life style choices they can make on a daily basis. In the afternoon session Year 5 made healthy wraps with cheese and grated carrots.

"The wraps tasted yummy and the session was really helpful because we didn't realise just how much sugar is in various types of food e.g. chocolate and crisps." 

"We will definitely be thinking carefully about our food choices in the future." commented Libby, Ilsa, Jessica and Lottie
