Waka Paddle

Our whole school has a big waka in the library.  Every person in the school is designing their own waka paddle so we can work as a team.

This is my waka paddle.  It shows my mountain, river and family.  It also shows that I love blogging, my cats and reading.

How much sugar?

Liz the dietician came again and we looked at the nutritional guides on cereal packages.  We also looked at how much sugar is in drinks.

Which drink would you choose?
1. Water?
2. Milk?
3. Juice?
4. Flavoured milk?
5. Coke?
6. Powerade?
7. V?

What's in our lunches?

We took a close look at what is in our lunches.  I wonder if these will change as we learn more about healthy foods?
Have we covered all the food groups at the base of the pyramid - fruit, vegetables, bread and cereals?

Brain Break: Rock, paper scissors, maths!

We are learning about how brain breaks can help us maximise or learning time.  Here is one brain break activity we are going to try. 

Try to answer these questions:
How were you feeling before the activity?
What did you have to do with your body and brain during the activity?
How did your feel after the activity?
How did doing this activity make a difference to your thinking and learning?
