FRUIT / Ffrwyth
Every morning, the children may buy a healthy snack for 30p. The Year 6 children wash and sell the fruit and count our earnings. We use any profit to buy some special extras for the children in their lessons.
WATER BOTTLES/ Poteli Dwr
We are trying to reduce the number of bottles we throw away so are
encouraging the children to bring a water bottle to school or buy a Greenway one for £1.50, available from the school office. They may fill it at the fresh water fountain. They can keep this in class and re hydrate throughout the day.
We will have our PE session on a Tuesday. As these sessions will be outdoors can the children please wear appropriate clothing. As the session is towards the end of the day, they can wear their kit home rather than changing back into their uniform.
‘Fun Fitness & Wellbeing’
We will do this every afternoon for 10 minutes a day. The children will get fit and feel good in a fun way!
