We know it's important for all children to eat a healthy and balanced diet. To help keep healthy eating fun we will be giving you some great ideas and recipes below.
To help children feel comfortable with and work towards trying new fruit and vegetables why not try interacting with them through play. Fruit race cars can be a great activity. Click to watch the video tutorial.

Five Fruity Water Ideas
Children aged 4-8 need around 1.2 litres of water a day (that's around 5 full glasses), while children aged 9 and up will need 1.5 litres (around 6 glasses).
To help make water more exciting, why not try adding fresh slices of fruit over squash and other drinks. Fresh fruit will only contain natural sugars and children a boost of vitamins. Here's some we would recommend to help give your child's water some flavour.
1. Orange slices
2. Apple slices
4. Cucumber slices and fresh mint
5. Lime and lemon slices
It's important for all children to keep active.
In school we offer regular PE lessons, our Daily Mile challenge and active playtimes, as well as a number of school clubs and active journey to school challenges.
It is also important to keep active at home, as well as over the school holidays.

Walk to School
We want to encourage more of our families to walk to school and are part of the Bristol City Council "School Streets" Scheme. this means Ellfield Close is shut to traffic between 8.30am - 9.00am and 3.00pm - 3.30pm.
A reminder that we have permission for pedestrian access only via the church entrance, not for vehicles, so we ask you to be mindful and either park elsewhere, or walk to school.
Below is a google map image which shows the areas which are only 5-10 minutes walk from school, so you can plan your journeys accordingly.
Thank you for working with us to keep our school community safe and healthy.
