Hydration Races - 17th May 2018
We started as always demolishing lots of delightful fruit and chatting about our new foods we had tried this week.
After clearing the plates and cups we gathered outside on the playground. Mr McKenzie did a little talk about how much water is a healthy amount to intake during our school day, and this varies on our age. We measured how many water bottles fit into a 2 litre bottle and then counted how many second it took to tip 2 litres of water out of a bottle – more than 30 seconds! Then came the best bit of the afternoon – Hydration races!! 3 teams 3 buckets 2 tubs and 6 bottles, how much water could we transport and negotiate the course without spilling any?! Team 1 and 3 drew 23cm each first race then the second race team 1 got 22cm and won the tye breaker.
We had fun filling, running, guiding ,encouraging ,learning and drinking to refuel our brains.
Another successful health club session!
Light Diffuser Sleep Session - 22nd March 2018
What a start to our session on a Thursday - we all felt and smelt a passion fruit, then came the fun bit where we cut through the middle to show what the children described as "Snozcumber" from the BFG. The texture wasn't a hit but the smell was delightful!
The group talked about our sleep habits and routines from bathing to warm drinks to bed time stories. Ipads and tablets were mentioned and this is where we talked about the blue ignition light from the screens and that our brains buzz off it.
We made our brilliant personalised light diffuser frames and couldn't wait to tell our adults who collected us all about how to use them. Some great understanding of what a good nights sleep does for us and how we function everyday!

Thursday 23rd November 2017
Ravensmere Health Club was alive with chopping fruit and chatting about the new things we had tasted this week.
Today we were looking at sleep, we filled in a sleep sheet so we could see what time we went to bed and what time we got up. We talked about how many hours is a healthy amount to have per night.
We discussed the blue light in our brains that turns on when we look at ipads/tv/computers so our brains blue light doesn't switch on so much!
"It was like looking through sunglasses".
We were all very tired after a busy Health Club and challenged ourselves to see how many hours sleep we could get that night.
Health Club Seaside Trip
On Wednesday 24th May, Health Club finished our sessions with a fun afternoon.
We boarded the mini bus and headed to Pakefield beach. Here we set up camp, windbreaks secure, kites made and buckets ready for use We had a brilliant afternoon building sandcastles and flying kites in the strong wind. We finished playing rounders, Mr McKenzie’s team vs Mrs Chambers team…….we think it was a draw!
Fun, laughter, sea, sand and exercise, cannot wait to do it again soon!
