Year 4 has had the busiest of weeks so far participating in daily Healthy Eating activities as part of their Science learning.
They have looked at the health benefits of wholegrains and calculated the fibre content of different food items. They tasted wholegrain alternatives and also guessed the ingredients of different fruit and vegetable smoothies. They carried out a food survey, where they learned that the most disliked vegetable in Year 4 is broccoli, whilst the most liked one is carrot. They infused water with lemon, cucumber and mint and also looked at mindfulness and mental wellbeing.
The children had the opportunity to try karate on Wednesday, which they thoroughly enjoyed.
For the children who are celebrating their First Holy Communion this weekend, we wish them every blessing as they grow closer to Jesus through receiving this Sacrament.
As part of this celebration we are asking for all the children to bring in a photograph of them from their First Holy Communion for a class display.
Next week, it is Year 4’s assembly on the Rosary, and this will be posted on the blog. Please encourage your child to learn their words for this.
Wishing you a lovely weekend,
Ms Varga and Mrs McNamara
