Year 5 had a visit from the Dental Nurse Mrs Kellett during our Health Week to revisit some very important messages about how to keep their teeth and gums healthy by brushing twice a day and avoiding sugary snacks and drinks apart from at meal times. They also enjoyed meeting Kanga, Mrs Kellet’s special Kangaroo who helps to deliver all the important healthy teeth messages in a fun way!
During Health Week Year 5 have been learning all about medicine safety. We discussed different types of drugs legal and illegal. We learnt about where it is safe to get prescribed medicines from and where they should be stored safely at home. Also in this session with our School Nurses we discussed what to do in an emergency if a friend became injured and you were waiting for help. We had a try and putting our friends in the recovery position and doing some bandaging.
We launched Health Week in our morning assembly and all this week the children will be learning all about healthy eating, exercise and making good choices in life. There will be lots going on including Sports Day (fingers crossed for good weather on Wednesday).
