On Tuesday mornings last term we had the opportunity to use the facilities at Water Orton Tennis Club. The children were coached by Paul who over the weeks taught them the basic tennis strokes. By the end of term the children's tennis skills had greatly improved. On the last day Paul presented the children with a certificate and medals were awarded to the three highest scorers.
During the Autumn term, we are taking part in a project organised by Solihull Active. Every Wednesday morning Julia has been working with us to find out about how we can stay active and eat healthily. On alternate weeks we are finding out about nutrition and how to have a healthy diet. Then, during the other weeks we are taking part in physical activities to help us learn how to become fit and work together to stay healthy. Hope you enjoy our pictures!
Today Julie from Solihull Active taught us about good and bad fats in our diet. She explained how the foods we eat contain different types of fats and how these fats can affect our bodies. She said it is better for our health to stay away from (solid) bad fats and replace it with (unsaturated) good fats to ensure blood cholesterol readings are at a level to avoid poor health.
Also, during this session we had to list foods that contained good fats and foods that contained bad fats. We then tasted foods that we could have towards giving us a good and healthy diet.
Here are some pictures...
