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.
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.
