Council Meeting Minutes Autumn Term 2021
Friday 24th September 2021
Today was the first time that we met as a group so the first thing we did was introduce ourselves. We are looking forward to working together and learning about keeping ourselves healthy. We hope that we can help to keep our school a healthy one!
We talked about the different ways in which we can be healthy.
We decided to look at healthy lunches and what would be best to have in our school lunch boxes.
We did a cutting and sticking activity to help us decide. We think we made the right choices, have a look at the photos in the ‘Our Activities Autumn Term’ section to see what you think!

Today we distributed Healthy Lunch Box stickers to Reception, Yr1, Yr1/2 and Yr2. These will be awarded to the pupil who has the healthiest lunch box on a Friday each week. Yrs 3,4,5,6 will use dojos as rewards.
We then used our chrome books to research about food nutrition.
We learned about carbohydrates, protein, dairy, oils, sugar, fruit and vegetables and that a balanced diet is best for us.
We played a game to help us decide the content of certain foods.
Please see the photos of us having fun playing the game in the ‘Our Activities Autumn Term’ section of the website.

Today we were very happy to welcome a new member to our group. We will add his photo to ‘Meet the Healthy Schools Council’ section very soon.
We made our own healthy lunches.
We started by washing our hands and cleaning the table ready to prepare the food.
We buttered whole meal bread and chopped salad and fruit to add to our lunch boxes.
Mrs Jabin brought in some lentil dahl and rice as an example of something different that we could have as a healthy lunch.
We finished by eating our lunch which we really enjoyed!
Please see the photos of us preparing and eating our healthy food in the ‘Our Activities Autumn Term’ section of the website.

We discussed the sugar content of drinks.
We used our chrome books to research how much sugar is in certain drinks.
We made a chart with drawings of the drinks.
We worked out how many grammes of sugar are in the drinks and added this to the chart. We also worked out how many tablespoons of sugar are in each drink and added this to the chart.
We found out that water has no sugar in it.
We decided that next week we will weigh out the amounts of sugar in each drink and add this to the chart.
