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.
