We’re busy getting fit and healthy
Youngsters at Gleniffer Nursery have leapt into spring with Health Week 2021.
The children aged three to five have been focusing on all aspects of healthy living such as eating good food and being active.
The tots were introduced to gardening and growing their own food with the launch of the nursery’s very own growing garden.
They had the opportunity to plant seeds which will hopefully produce an abundance of fresh vegetables to eat at meal times throughout the year.
They have also been learning what is good for their bodies through the eat well to play well plate.
And they had no shortage of activities to take part in with a sports day hosted every single day of the week-long project.
The young athletes took part in obstacle courses, running, races and football.
Also trying to make the best of the relentless hand washing under coronavirus restrictions, the children have also made up their own songs to help them with their hand-washing routines, demonstrating great knowledge of how to keep safe and healthy.
Louise Reilly from the nursery said: “I am very proud of each and every one of the children for all of their efforts this week and we will continue focusing on health and well-being based activities throughout the up and coming months.
“All the children were awarded certificates for their sports day participation and our parents are delighted with their confident little superstars.”
The Express is today featuring the first of two picture specials from the nursery, with the second to be included in tomorrow’s paper.
