This term, we have been learning how important it is to stay active and eat a balanced diet.
We have been having a healthy week so far with our Fruit and Veg Day, yoghurt making and the Cross Country fun run.
THE CROSS COUNTRY
Today was the Leopold Primary School Cross Country. It was held on the oval and all the students from Prep to Grade Six were involved. The Grade Twos had to run a challenging course around the school grounds.
The boys ran first and then the girls. Everyone tried their very best!
There are some special efforts that need to be mentioned..
Liam (2KM) came third out of all the Grade Two boys.
Alana (2KM) came second out of all the Grade Two girls.
Millie (2KM) came third out of all the Grade Two girls.
Next year, when the students are in Grade Three, they will have the chance to go on to compete against students from other schools if they do well in the Cross Country.
Here are some photos of the Cross Country fun (tip: click on the picture to make it bigger)
Yoghurt is an excellent dairy food. Yoghurt is good for us because it contains
calcium for strong teeth and bones,
good bacteria to help our stomachs work properly,
protein to keep us feeling full and to make our muscles strong.
Mrs Morris makes her own yoghurt with an Easiyo Yoghurt maker so she brought it to school to show 2KM and 2KJ how to make yoghurt.
Mrs Morris enjoys making her own yoghurt because it is cheaper than buying yoghurt and has more good bacteria in it than store bought yoghurt.
2KM and 2KJ loved making and tasting some strawberry yoghurt.
It takes just three steps to make yoghurt.
1. Dissolve the yoghurt powder into a jar of water.
2. Add boiling water to the yoghurt maker.
3. Leave the yoghurt for 8 to 24 hours. Chill it and enjoy!
