Last week Devon had a very interesting snack for brainfood - an apple spiral! After getting lots of comments from the rest of the class, he decided to bring his apple peeler into class. What a great learning experience! Devon helped everyone in the class peel an apple and turn it into a spiral. This was a great opportunity to talk about what constitutes a brainfood snack at Reremoana School:
"All schools, as part of the health curriculum, teach students about the importance of healthy eating and nutrition. At Reremoana School this is a year round focus. We encourage children to eat health snacks and drink water during class time to ensure optimum brain functioning and learning. We encourage children to come to school with "Healthy Snacks" and a bottle that can be filled with water. Ultimately, the decision about whether children bring "brain food" to school to eat during class time and what is included in school lunches is up to each family" - excerpt from "Information for Families", Reremoana School Website.
This week Room 15 has been presented with a challenge - pack your own brainfood snack every day this week. Take a photo of yourself preparing or packing your brainfood snack and email it to Miss Chalmers (firstname.lastname@example.org). Include a short description or explanation of what you are choosing for brainfood. Photos will then be put up on our blog - you'll be famous!!
Here are the links to the blogs of Room 9 and 10 - okay, okay, so we stole their challenge! ;)
