We are pleased to be able to continue to offer a portion of a nutritionally fortified bagel to every single child.
We have observed many benefits since introducing the bagels to the classroom.
The introduction of the bagels alongside quiet time in the mornings have helped to create a safe, calm and positive environment where the children look forward to receiving their bagel. It has also helped the schools work to provide wider support to children as we help them to know how to keep physically and mentally healthy. The children are more confident to discuss the impact of having breakfast on their day at school such as improved concentration.
When you are preparing food it is important to do so safely. Watch the clip to see how the bridge hold is used to cut ingredients safely. This is a technique we we use in class.

The whole school enjoyed participating in BNF Healthy Eating week where we took part in numerous activities in order to complete the 5 challenges.
Some of the exciting activities included: cooking in our classrooms, a 5 a day lunch provided by pabulum, drinking infused water, participating in a break dancing lesson and coming to school in our pjs! We all had a fantastic week learning more about health and wellbeing. Take a look at some of the things we got up to below.
We have introduced the option of a bagel for breakfast to every child in the school. The bagels are provided by the National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), which is funded by the government and delivered by the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast. The bagels are made to a special recipe, containing 25% whole wheat and fortified with Vitamin D. They are also free from any artificial flavourings or preservatives. Each child receives a portion of a bagel depending on their year group. Nursery - Year 3 receive a quarter of a bagel and years 4-6 receive half of a bagel. The aim of the magic breakfast is to ensure that no child starts the school day feeling hungry.
