Children from Wilton and Barford Primary School enjoyed fun and healthy activities during their Healthy Schools Week recently.

A healthy week of fun

Wilton & Barford pupils enjoy a workout with the 'Dance Lady'

Children, parents and staff were encouraged to join in a Zumba ‘wake and shake’ session before school in the summer sunshine, with Caroline ‘the dance lady’.

The day continued with Caroline teaching Zumba and Olympic Dance to each class, including the pre-school.  This involved Olympic torch and flames movements, and sporting actions. All the children joined in with enthusiasm.

Children from KS2 took part in learning about emergency first aid with Gilly Boote from St John’s Ambulance.  They learned how to make an emergency phone call, to help someone who is choking and how to stop bleeding using wound dressings.  Two of the children were made up with a black eye and a  realistic open wound.

Other activities completed in class included looking at a balanced diet and planning healthy meals.  Some children made healthy lunchbox snacks such as pasta salad, pitta, wraps and fruit pots.  The school nurse worked with children from KS1 sorting healthy and unhealthy foods.

Children also took part in fun sports activities with Saints in the Community with an Olympic theme.  For the majority of the week, all children were able to swim daily in the school swimming pool.  However, rain stopped play on Friday and the Sports Day had to be postponed.
