Healthy Lifestyle Week
This week has been Healthy Lifestyle Week throughout the school. We have been taking part in different activities. Every day we did Wake Up Shake Up. It is when we dance to music to be active.
On Monday we had a class discussion on what it meant to be healthy. We said that we had to eat healthy, exercise and have a healthy mind.
On Tuesday, in the front playground, there were two boxes; one a praise box and the other a worry box. We could write down a praise or a worry. Later on in the day, our class teacher read a book to us called ‘The Huge bag of worries’. We talked about if we told someone about our worries, they would soon go away. Year 4, 5 & 6 also had there mindfulness session. We did breathing exercises and it helped us de-stress.
On Wednesday we walked to school and got a sticker. So many people walked to school, we ran out of stickers!
On Thursday, in the front playground, we had an 80’s workout were we all had to join in. Year 1, 2 and 3 had their mindfulness session. We learnt all about healthy foods and a balanced diet.
On Friday we had our Healthy Lifestyle week reflection. We were asked questions about this week and were allowed time to reflect and relax.
This week has been a great week at St. Cecilia’s!
