This week pupils in our school have been taking part the British Nutrition Foundation’s Healthy Eating Week. This involved us trying some of the BNF Healthy Eating Week challenges.
Pupils had the opportunity to take part in activities within school, including games and cooking to promote key health messages and habits.
Key Stage Three pupils are pictured making healthy snacks which we later got to enjoy at our Praise Service.
On 8th June Key Stage Three pupils took part in the British Heart Foundation’s Mission: CPR, which aims to create a nation of life savers. In the CPR training sessions, the pupils learned child and adult CPR, how to put a casualty in the recovery position and how to use a defibrillator.
Currently only 1 in 10 people survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest but our pupils, and others who also took part across the country, aim to change that! Their CPR training could mean the difference between life and death for any of the 30,000 people who have a cardiac arrest every year.
With great excitement, BICS pupils headed to The Reformation Room at Martyrs’ FPC on 26th May. ‘Katherine Von Bora’ took us from the 95 Theses doors at the front of the building, upstairs to various sections representing parts of Martin Luther’s life. There was much to see and do, such as trying various costumes and Luther’s ‘monastery’ bed, watching a video of Luther’s life, solving puzzles and getting hands on experience with a printing press. Thanks to Alana and James, who did an excellent job so that alongside the fun the important Reformation truths were being taught to young minds. Thanks also to Bryan for driving the bus.
