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?.............

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!
