Youngsters take on pollution

Have your say

YOUNGSTERS and their parents were pampered, fed and took part in exercise to celebrate the topic of health and beauty.

Charles Dickens Infants in Buckland transformed into a health spa for the day as everyone took part in a range of activities.

In the morning, pupils who have been learning about the importance of exercise, took part in a sponsored bounce and raised £200 towards drama props for their outdoor play area.

They made tropical fruit kebabs and tucked into pieces of melon, strawberry, mango and pineapple.

Later, the school was visited by Highbury College students, who treated parents and carers to hand massages and nail painting.

To round things off, the youngsters entertained the adults with a song about eating five pieces of fruit a day.

Debbie Semple, Key Stage One manager, said: ‘It was a terrific way to round off the topic and we were pleased with how many parents came along.

‘The children had so much fun doing their sponsored bounce and they sang beautifully for the parents.

‘Health and beauty has been a really successful topic, especially as it involved a lot of eating of healthy foods and designing fruit salads.’

She added: ‘The money we raised for the outdoor play area will allow us to get some great resources for the children to enjoy role plays, as well as bats and balls and other equipment to enjoy.’
