Smoothies - 28th March 2018
Wow what a way to finish this groups health club time with us......smoothie making!
First we made the recipes of what we were going to add into our shakes, then one by one we collected our fruit and juice and some even used yoghurt to place in our magic bullet blender.
We tasted and rated our own smoothies and even had enough left for a takeaway one to share at home with others.
It was agreed that not all smoothies turned out the way we thought but most tasted and looked inviting. Maybe we could hold a smoothie sale in the summer months and share some of our recipes with you all.
Glitter Germs - 14th March 2018
On Wednesday 14th March the fruit was scrumptious as always and not a morsel was left on a plate.
Our topic was germs and how we spread them, where they come from and how we get rid of them. We had a brilliant glitter chain going on outside. We covered our hand in paint and handled objects covered in glitter (glitter representing germs) and passed them to one another.
We were amazed by how many germs we had on our hands in such a short time. We continued to put our hand prints onto sheets of sugar paper. We then thoroughly washed our hands free of the germs, which took some doing with some good soap suds.
We were so enthused about spreading the good news to others that we made some posters to place around the school.
What will next week bring to our fun health club!!
Sugar Scanning - 7th March 2018
Wowee this week was a real eye opener to how much sugar we are eating. This leads on from our teeth session and how much we have to clean off our teeth.
We split into pairs and prepped our Ipads and off we went sugar hunting around the tables full of empty packages. A large tub of celebrations was our highest sugar hit, measuring a whopping 236 sugar cubes.
As we scanned the fruit a green man appeared saying natural fruit only - big thumbs up for Health Club.
The children measured out the sugar cubes representing against the packages we were scanning. The children were surprised about some of the packed lunch bars in many lunchboxes and how many cubes they contained.
The children left Health Club wondering what excitement next week will bring!

We made some fun bacteria bugs!
Wednesday 22nd November 2017
We started the fruit eating during a game of would you rather, this was with much amusement as we discussed our answers and reasons. Would you rather have bananas as toes or fingers?
The persimmon fruit was unusual to taste and to the eye, but a new try for us all! The emotion board was discussed and we talked about the different things and experiences that bring out different emotions inside us.
We painted emotion pebbles to reflect one of our strong emotions we see in others or feel ourselves.
We finished the session with a game of emotion corner dash, burning some of our fruit energy as we participated.
What will next week bring?.............
Wednesday 15th November 2017
This weeks health club saw us making hands without bones, it was so funny trying to shake hands with each other! We talked about how many bones we have in our whole body and where they are.
We tried something different in our fruit platter too..............pomula! Look out for one and try it yourselves and let Mr McKenzie and Mrs Chambers know what you think!
Wednesday 8th November 2017
In Health Club this week we learnt about sugar content in food and the effects of sugar in our bodies.
We used our sugar scan app on our Ipads to see how many sugar cubes were in the food packets scattered on the tables.
The children were amazed by some o the results. The Health Club children have reported to Mr McKenzie and Mrs Chambers that they are using the sugar scanning app around tescos.
Health Club Seaside Trip
On Wednesday 24th May, Health Club finished our sessions with a fun afternoon.
We boarded the mini bus and headed to Pakefield beach. Here we set up camp, windbreaks secure, kites made and buckets ready for use We had a brilliant afternoon building sandcastles and flying kites in the strong wind. We finished playing rounders, Mr McKenzie’s team vs Mrs Chambers team…….we think it was a draw!
Fun, laughter, sea, sand and exercise, cannot wait to do it again soon!
