Pupils fo­cus on healthy eat­ing and fit­ness

Rutherglen Reformer - - Loch Primary -

Pupils at a Ruther­glen pri­mary school took part in sev­eral ex­cit­ing ac­tiv­i­ties to cel­e­brate Health Week.

Loch Pri­mary School chil­dren learned about keep­ing their bod­ies healthy by par­tak­ing in a va­ri­ety of ex­er­cises in­clud­ing mak­ing a sand­wich with fresh food and a sprint chal­lenge.

Pri­maries two, three and four had fun mak­ing their own healthy recipes for the sand­wich with fresh juices and gua­camole when War­bur­ton’s vis­ited the school.

Each class was also vis­ited by the school’s den­tal nurse and were given ad­vice on which foods were good and bad for main­tain­ing a high stan­dard of oral health. Classes then par­tic­i­pated in lessons about an­tibul­ly­ing, friend­ship and pos­i­tive men­tal health.

Pupils were asked to de­sign a mas­cot to rep­re­sent the newly formed sports coun­cil and a pri­mary seven stu­dent was cho­sen as the win­ner.

The Ac­tive Schools’ co­or­di­na­tor or­gan­ised a sprint chal­lenge which in­volved ev­ery child in the school be­ing timed run­ning a cer­tain dis­tance. The win­ners were both pupils from pri­mary two.

Dur­ing Health Week the whole school par­tic­i­pated in a sports day. The pupils worked in mixed teams with chil­dren and took part in a range of ac­tiv­i­ties such as net­ball, foot­ball and hockey.

Par­ents were also in­vited into the school to join their child in a Zum­bat­omic fit­ness class taken by a qual­i­fied Zumba in­struc­tor. This was thor­oughly en­joyed by pupils, par­ents and staff alike.
