Healthy Eating Week 11th-15th June

We are delighted to let you know that Lime Tree will be taking part in Healthy Eating Week from 11th to 15th June 2018. Launched by the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) in 2013, the aim of the week is to promote:

  • healthy eating
  • being active
  • learning about where food comes from
  • cooking

We will begin the week with an introduction assembly about what a balanced and healthy lifestyle is, and we will also share the BNF aims with the children and staff. As a school we will then take part in a range of activities throughout the week to promote the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Activities will include cooking*, exercising, designing, researching and completing surveys and questionnaires. The Healthy Eating Week aims and activities make important links with aspects of the children’s PSHE, PE and Design and Technology learning.

*All classes will be cooking during the week. Please speak to your child’s class teacher about any food allergies or concerns that you may have.*

In addition to our in-school learning, we will be hosting a Bike It Breakfast and an Extreme Exercise competition which will be open to all children, staff, parents and carers.

Bike It Breakfast

We would like to invite you to get in gear for our exciting, summer event, a FREE family Bike It Breakfast. On Tuesday 12th June, from 8:00 – 8:3oam, we will be offering a delicious breakfast and refreshments to all parents, pupils and staff who cycle or scoot to school that morning. There will be an additional letter to follow with further details about the event.

Extreme Exercise Competition

What is the most unique and extreme way that you can exercise? Perhaps its somewhere different and daring, like the beach or on a trampoline. What is the most extreme exercise that you can do? It might be rollerblading, sailing or even skiing!

Parents, children and staff will each have their own competition to find the most extreme exerciser. This competition will run from Monday 11th June to Friday 22nd June and winners will be announced in the Friday WOW assembly. To enter please take a photo of yourself exercising in an extreme way and hand it to your class teacher.
