Healthy living day
Healthy Living Day
We had a whole day devoted to aspects of healthy living.
In Class 3, our first session was about the benefits of exercise and we learnt all about a new sport that many of us hadn't tried before; lacrosse. Mr Parkin was very impressed with quickly we all picked up passing skills.
Our second activity was led by Heather and Lorraine from Spa-Dental in Plymouth. They told us all about how to keep our teeth healthy and how to brush properly. We chewed a disclosing tablet and then brushed our teeth really carefully for 2 minutes until they were clean again!
Our third activity was learning all about the heart and blood pressure. We learnt about what blood pressure is, why it is important in living healthily and then we research for and took part in an interactive quiz on the topic.
