Yesterday in school we launched the ‘Eat them to defeat them’ campaign in school. The campaign is run by Veg Power.

Over lunch this week, the children will be encouraged to try our weekly veg. This week is carrot! Carrots will be included with every meal this week and a carrot tasting table was set up yesterday in the dining hall for the children to come and taste carrots in a variety of ways. The carrot smoothie was so popular we could hardly keep up with the demand! Each child who tasted carrot yesterday received a sticker and all the children took home their very own pack and wall chart so they can continue the good work at home. Please help to support your child with this.
Next week is peas!

Following our Reduce, Reuse, Recycle event in school, the children have been busy creating posters to encourage less waste in school. One of the focuses is ‘composting’.
As we have started our lovely allotment, the children in Class Mars and Class Venus will be out collecting veg and fruit peelings at break times to add to our compost bins.
The staff have not got away with things either. After the children examined the staffroom bin, they decided that something had to be done about it! Mrs Herrington has provided the staffroom with a mini compost bin for any peelings and has found some plastic free teabags that can be composted for all the staff to enjoy.
The children have been learning how to keep themselves safe. Part of the work we do at BBS to safeguard our young children is to learn
PANTS: The Underwear Rule
As part of our PHSE work Keeping Ourselves Safe, all the children in school enjoyed a family day where they gathered with their school family group and created their very own ‘Trusted Adult’ hand print.
All the children know that if they have any worries they would like to chat about they have a number of trusted adults they can talk to. The children added an adult from home, an adult at school, someone else and the NSPCC helpline number.
All the work we did in school last year in PHSE thinking about our wellbeing is being continued in school. Look at our ‘Feeling Calm’ area in one of our classrooms.
The children are still thinking how they can not only improve their own wellbeing but also their peers, families and staff in school. Filling up each others buckets each day with acts of kindness is a great way to start.
Wellbeing Wednesday has started already. The Wellbeing Ambassadors introduced the first idea during an assembly and they have been greeting each and every child in a way they are most comfortable with as they arrive at school.
