Eat Smart Sheffield and Food for Life

At Watercliffe Meadow we are committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle and we pride ourselves on providing our children with healthy school meals every day.

We are part of the Eat Smart Sheffield and Food for Life initiative and we want to promote healthy eating in our community too, so every week we are going to blog a healthy recipe for you to try at home!
We want to hear about any healthy recipes you enjoy cooking at home too as we would like to collect a bank of these recipes to produce our very own Watercliffe Meadow Recipe Book!

When you try one of our recipes or cook your own, please take a photo of your finished dish and a photo of you and your family enjoying the food too if you like, plus your recipe. We
hope to have a collection of lots of lovely healthy dishes by the end of the summer 2021.
Here is a recipe for a filling cottage pie to start off our cooking adventure! Happy cooking!

Make your own board game!

Challenge – make all of the accessories to go with your board game. Do need challenge cards? Dice? A spinner? Maybe a box to keep it in? Plus you need instructions for how to play the game and more importantly, how to win!

We’ve got some templates below for you to use or make your own!

Wednesday’s Learning

It’s been a bit of a mathstastic day today with excellent Flashback 4s and conversion of units. We’ve also had some lovely writing and our first board game!

Wednesday 1st July

Good morning, let’s start with some PE with Joe to get us moving!

Guided reading –

Writing – Plan your own advert for space travel!

Spellings – how many new words can you make from the letters in your spelling words? For example, from Wednesday, you can make say, day, dense, dew and lots more!

Maths – flashback 4 and a puzzle

Make your own board game!

Challenge – start making your board game! Use your design from yesterday to help you and check out the examples below again for ideas. You are just designing the board today, tomorrow you will have time to make all of your accessories, like dice, challenge cards, spinners etc.

It’s a good idea to use cardboard for the board as it’s strong. You could cut and stick paper on top or draw straight onto it. Make sure your design is clear to follow and decorate it according to your theme (pirates, supermarket, whatever you’re doing!)

We can’t wait to see what you create – make sure you send your learning to us!
