At West Park we promote healthy eating. Our rainbow of healthy foods display in the dinner hall reminds children to eat a range of colours "Colour Fuel". Children are rewarded with stickers at lunch time if they choose and eat healthy options. Children with a healthy packed lunch are also rewarded.

Exciting News

Due to the changes in the Health and Relationships Education curriculum, as a school we have decided to buy into a new scheme of work which is called 1Decision. It's new and current with very engaging and interactive resources. We have been trialling some of these units in school and the staff and children seem to be enjoying it so far. The updated long term plan will be uploaded before September 2020 so look out for it!

Healthing Eating in School

I have been in the dinner hall at lunch times looking at the food the children are now served and it looks delicious, colourful and healthy.  This is what some of the children said about our new school lunches:

 

"I really like the choices, there is always something nice to choose". Year 3

 

"We get to go to the salad cart and choose what and how much we want, I think that's good" Year 5

 

"The water is nice and we get to pour our own, you can choose water that is flavoured with different fruit" Year 4

 

"It's yummy" Year 1

 

"We get to choose fruit for pudding so I sometime have that" Year 2

 

"There has been an improvement in the food we have and how we are served. I like that we get plates and cups that are nice and colourful, the food is tasty with lots of choice and it also seem very healthy" Year 6

Lunchtime

Today Mrs Clarke delivered an important assembly about how to have a fabulous lunchtime. She reminded the children about our key principle of Choose Kind. The children listened very carefully and have promised to follow the rules. If all classes follow the rules then they get to have lots more equipment to play. Come on kids you can do it!

Road Safety

Last week we had a road safety talk and it was very informative and lots of fun. The children got to pretend crossing the road safely and even got to dress up in different uniforms. We will remember to find a safe place with an adult, hold hands then STOP LOOK and LISTEN.

Visit from the school nurse

During this half term the school nurse Michelle has been in twice to deliver our assemblies. Our first assembly was about dental hygiene. She reminded the children about when we brush our teeth and how often. Also she said that children should be visiting the dentist every 6 months. If you are not signed up to a dentist come and speak to our staff in the office and they will be able to help signpost you to local dentists in the area.

Our second assembly was about healthy eating. It was a reminder to children about how many portions of fruit and veg they should be eating per day. We need your help to encourage this at home so maybe after school you could give the children a piece of fruit instead of chocolate or sweets! Save the treats to the weekend.

 

We have given out toothbrushes and toothpaste to the younger children in school and hope they are all using them!

Younger children might want to watch the clip below about brushing teeth.

Super Displays

Look at our super displays around school.

Tooth Brushing in 3SA

This half term, we have focused on the importance of brushing our teeth as a whole school. In our PSHE lessons, we have created instructions and tutorial videos to support others with how to brush their teeth. Take a look at one of our videos.

Dental Hygiene

This week in science the children have been roleplaying how to brush their teeth in preparation for writing instructions.

We have completed our instructions and written them up, we now need to make our class video.

Thank you to Oskar for creating his poster at home about how to brush your teeth.

Terrific Teeth!

Check out Year 5's video about keeping teeth clean.

Dental Hygiene

As part of the well-being curriculum at West Park, pupils are finding out about how to look after their teeth. We want 100% of children to be brushing their their twice a day! Find out how to help your child by looking at the assembly slides.

Brilliant Breakfast

  • Breakfast:
    helps our bodies to wake up in the morning;

  • provides us with energy;

  • stops us feeling hungry before lunch, to prevent us from unhealthy snacking;

  • helps us to concentrate at school or work;

  • stops us feeling tired and moody;

  • can help us maintain a healthy weight.

But... be careful of the amount of sugar in your breakfast cereal.  We found some cereals contain too much sugar and should only be eaten as a treat!  Take a look at our findings.

Road Safety

Year 1 had an exciting visitor today! A member of the lollypop team came to see us to talk to us about road safety. They showed us all of the special clothes that they had to wear, along with how to use the lolly pop stick. We got to dress up in some of the clothes and have a go at being a lollypop person, stopping all of the cars and letting people cross the road. We had great fun. 

E-Safety

In year 2 we have been learning how to stay safe online. We listened to a short story about Smartie the Penguin and then thought about rules that our class would sign to say we will follow. Some of the children made posters to put in our classroom for other children and parents to see. If you want more information and resources linked to our learning in class click here.

Anti - Bullying Week

This week we have been taking part in Anti-bullying Week in school. This year the theme for anti-bullying week is Choose Respect and to support this the children were asked to wear odd socks. To listen to the Odd Socks Song please click here.

By taking part in Anti-bullying week we aim to:

  • raise the awareness of what bullying is e.g. STOP- Several Times On Purpose

  • identify the different forms of bullying- verbal, physical, emotional and cyber online

  • understand that bullying is a behaviour choice

  • to inform children about what to do if they being bullied

  • to provide ideas about who to report bullying to

  • understand what respect is and how we show it

  • encourage all children to work together to tackle bullying by Choosing Kind

On Wednesday the school council delivered an informative and engaging assembly. We watched a short video clip about a young girl who was being bullied by her friend explains how eventually she found the courage to confide in a teacher and how the situation was dealt with. Since then the bully has seen the error of her ways and as a result is now a friendly, pleasant and polite person who everybody likes. To watch the clip please click here.

Take a look at some of the things that have been going on in school.
