This week’s whole homework involves completing the pupil health questionnaire sent home with your child/children.

 I can share my views about health.

Pupil voice is an important part of our school and this annual questionnaire provides pupil views on some of our key health issues.

Please support your child to complete the health questionnaire by discussing these issues.

Please note the questionnaire should be returned to your class teacher by Wednesday 18 July.

This week, our whole school homework is creative and should be returned to class by Thursday 12 July.

I can make healthy choices.

This is the chance for children to reflect on our Being Healthy themed week and consider what healthy choices they should make and encourage others to make.

This could be presented in any creative way:

  • a game
  • a poem
  • a song
  • a quiz
  • a letter
  • a comic strip
  • a script
  • a diary entry from the week

As part of our Being Healthy themed week, the homework this week is to complete a health diary.  The completed diary should be brought back to school on Thursday 05 July to ensure all the entries are made.

The diary covers diet, sleep and physical activity.

Once completed, you should reflect on your diary:

  • what surprised you about your diary?
  • what were you proud of?
  • what could you improve?
  • did you make any improvements throughout the week?
  • did you manage to achieve your five a day?
  • did you have five different portions of fruit and vegetables?
  • did you try to reduce your number of snacks and sweetened drinks?
  • did you find any alternative healthier snacks and drinks?

Physical activity guidelines state that children should do at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day (30 minutes at school and 30 minutes outside of school).  Is this something you have achieved?

Sleep guidelines state how much sleep children should have at different ages.  For example, a seven year old should have 10 hours 30 minutes sleep.  Sleep is especially important for children as it directly impacts mental and physical development.

We look forward to reviewing the diaries next Thursday in our homework review.

Our whole school homework this week is creative and should be returned to class by Thursday 24 May.

I am aware of my route to school.

Next week is Walk to School week.  To promote this and to encourage families to leave the car at home and explore their local area on foot, we are looking to produce a new, fun and exciting map of the routes our children take to school.  This will be produced in association with Dom Jacques, a parent who is a keen supporter of active travel, and Living Streets.
We hope the end product will be an official map available on our website – a great resource to inspire more families to use active travel for their everyday journeys to school and for children to increase awareness of their surroundings.  Over time, new features can be added such as the new local park.
At this initial stage, we would like children to look out for/draw/photograph some of the following features from their route to school to contribute to this map.
  • Points of interest – houses, buildings, gardens, street furniture, historical landmarks, street names and local amenities such as your favourite shops, doctors and cafes.
  • Nature – what trees, flowers, animals or birds do you see?
  • Points of improvement – spot things that make the walk unpleasant.  This may include obstacles on the routes (pavements blocked with cars & bins), litter (where are the bins and whether littering is a problem) and difficult crossings (is there anywhere where it feels unsafe to cross?).
  • Potential new features – what would you like to see on your route?

Children are invited, but not required, to use the initial version of the map below and add details of any of the above features in a creative way.
