Primary 4 have been learning all about eating a healthy, balanced diet and also about the nutritional value of food. We have been learning to read food labels and have been thinking about the content of sugar, fat and salt in the foods that we eat. As part of our learning, we have been thinking about how home made food is often healthier than ready made meals. In our class, pizza is defintiely a favourite food so we took a trip to Pizza Express at Victoria Terrace to find out how to make fresh, home cooked pizza. We learned about the importance of using fresh ingredients and herbs to make our food tasty. It was a great trip where we enjoyed going on the bus and eating our pizza when we got back to school!
Primary 1-7 enjoyed a fabulously sunny Sports Day at Meadowbank Stadium on Tuesday afternoon. Everyone enjoyed all the fun activities and then the younger classes cheered on the P4-7 pupils who braved the 100m and 400m competitive runs. Well done to everyone for taking part and a big thank you to Ms Rolland who organised it all for us, and to all the families who came along to support us.
What an active week we’ve had at Abbeyhill. As part of our Health Week we got limbered up to a whole school “Shake and Wake” session led by Karen from Dance Base on Tuesday morning, and this morning we were treated to an early morning Zumba class led by our own super fit P.E. teacher, Ms Rolland. We’re all tired out after all the exciting activities this week, but there’s no time to rest, as it’s the school Sports Day on Tuesday…we hope to see as many families as possible there to cheer us all on.
