January was a busy month for us in Lomond and we enjoyed lots of different Scottish themed activities. Part of our Scottish theme included our Health Week, where we had a focus on fun-filled, healthy activities.
Lots of our healthy activities centred around preparing and cooking healthy Scottish foods. We tried our hand at making Scotch broth soup which some of us enjoyed eating at snack time and we also made a very yummy ‘Lomond Special’ healthy version of cranachan- this went down a treat! We had a Burns Supper in our classroom and tasted some haggis, neeps and tatties which was very tasty!
We really enjoyed taking part in some special activities during Health Week. We did some marching in our classroom to some very noisy Scottish bagpipe music and even got to try on some traditional dress! We all really enjoyed when Party Animals came to visit and every one of us (staff not included!) was very brave when it came to touching all of the different animals. It was also lots of fun learning some new ceilidh dances when Ceilidh Kids came to visit.
Health week gave us the opportunity to be part of lots of new activities and we all responded very well and had lots of fun!
