Health and Wellbeing at Eyam
We really value the wonderful gardens that the Community helped to build here at the school and so wanted to share just one of our activities with you.
We run a ‘Healthy me’ club which involves experiencing how to use some of our own vegetables and fruit to make a yummy snack and at the same time getting a chance to chat as a group with a member of staff and make links between using fresh veg, being active, eating a balanced diet and unpacking some ideas about food, keeping fit and what might have been in the news.
There are obvious skills to develop such a peeling, oven use, cutting and weighing – so lots of maths as well as washing up and turn taking, listening and sequencing instructions.
It gives the children a chance to ask questions about growing up and Mrs Perring, who has training in Special needs and Mindfulness, also makes sure every child gets involved in the conversation. The children work in small groups and this year thanks to a donation from the church we’re going to offer the club to Owls as well as Squirrels.
