Pupils at Burn­side Pri­mary School proved this week that they are smooth-ie op­er­a­tors.

The young­sters held a Smoothie Day with sup­port from their com­mu­nity part­ner Tesco.

The event took place as part of the school’s health and well- be­ing cur­ricu­lum.

“The chil­dren re­ally en­joyed it,” said P5/6 teacher Ar­lene Tees.

“Karen Jarvie, the com­mu­nity cham­pion at Tesco, brought along fresh fruit, yo­ghurt and juice for the Smoothie in­gre­di­ents.

“The pupils also learned other skills – like how im­por­tant it is to be care­ful when chop­ping up things,” the teacher added.

The P5 and P5/6 pupils in­volved also found out more about Scot­tish pro­duce as part of Na­tional Food in Schools Day on Septem­ber 23.

On the day be­fore the Smoothie event young­sters through­out the school took part in the Big Crunch.

At noon, that day, ev­ery­one ate an ap­ple – or some other form of crunchy health food.

“The whole ex­pe­ri­ence was re­ally pos­ti­tive for the pupils,” added Miss Tees. “They had a ball and a learned a lot too, so it was an all-round suc­cess.”

Pri­mary five pupils and their teacher Louise Aitken also took part in all that was go­ing on.

The school wish to thank Tesco for con­tin­ued sup­port.
