Spire Junior School

Healthy Schools

We are working towards a Healthy Community Award. We have been taking part in different activities to help us achieve the award.

Healthy Drinks

Mrs. Barnett has worked with the Y 5 / 6 classes on the importance of healthy drinks. Children completed a ‘drinks wheel’ for homework.


Children have learnt how much sugar can be hiding in foods using the sugar smart resources. Y4 have also looked at the effects of too much sugar on teeth.

Healthy Eating in Y 3/4

Children tried different healthy foods in practical sessions. Parents also joined in and helped to make pitta pizzas. Resources were available to support parents with recipes and portion sizes.

Cooking Club

Mrs. White has started cooking club. Each week the group will be making something healthy and sharing the recipe with parents.
