Our Year fives have had a visit by representatives from Burnley FC, who are teaching the children a Healthy Eating Programme. The 6 week course, running every Thursday morning, teaches children awareness and understanding of healthy living and the choices they make. They spend 1 hour in class learn the six different topics:
The food groups, Sugar – where is it? The importance of breakfast, Hydration,Healthy food swaps, The right choices.
They then spend another hour doing a physical activity as the programme aims to link up the relationship between healthy choices and being active. As you can see the children are certainly being put through their paces!
