What a busy MADD Week we have had this week! The theme was, Being Healthy Inside and Out. All of the children have been involved in lots of activities both in class and with their friends in other classes. These activities linked to, healthy eating, being happy and having healthy bodies.

On Monday, we had a go a Belly Dancing with our friends in Bay Tree Class. We had the chance to try on different belly dancing costumes and were shown some different dance moves that we could do to the music.We enjoyed a sensory swimming session with Greg and Karen which we all loved.

On Tuesday, we took part in a lovely session where we sent a ball of wool around the group and said nice things about each other. This was part of our keeping our mind happy and healthy work. We had a great time doing PE with Paula, learning how to Maypole dance. For our lunch today we had Papa John’s Pizza as part of our work on fractions. In the afternoon we made veggie people and tasty smoothies that we all enjoyed trying. To finish off the day, we had a lovely Yoga session with out friends in Pine Tree class lead by Anna our music teacher.

Wednesday started with a very exciting Zumba session with the rest of Lower School. A lovely man from the YMCA came and we had so much fun dancing with our friends. In the afternoon we had a healthy snack competition which was judged by our governors. We prepared tasty crackers with star shaped salami and cheese topped off with an olive. Yummy!

On Thursday we were treated to a visit from John Morrow who bought lots of fantastic instruments for us to explore and listen to. All of the children were mesmerised  by the interesting sounds that they could hear. After this we had another music session with Anna which was lots of fun. In the afternoon we created self portraits that we were going to display in the hall for the pop up gallery.

The final day of MADD week has been just as busy as the rest. This morning we have had the pop up gallery displaying our work in the hall for parents and carers to see. We were very proud of all that we did this week. We shared a movie and massage time with Pine Tree class to finish off the morning ready for our PARTY!!!

Have a great weekend everyone, see you in Monday!
