Exciting Visitors Coming to Joydens Wood!

By Reception, Year 1, Year 2 No Comments

We are extremely lucky to have two Olympic athletes visiting our school.

During the morning of Tuesday 20 February, they will meet the children and lead an assembly where they will share their achievements and life experiences. They will talk about how they came to be athletes, what their training regime is like, how it felt to compete and win Olympic medals and what the children can do to follow their own sporting dreams! The rest of the day will involve each class having an exclusive PE lesson taught by the athletes. We are inviting all children to wear sportswear on this special day. This does not have to be the school PE kit.

We hope the children will really enjoy this exciting experience!

Fussy Eaters Workshop Coming Up!

By Reception, Year 1, Year 2 No Comments

Just a reminder that there is still time to book your place on the Fussy Eaters Workshop on Thursday February 8th 1.15pm.

As requested we will be making a Chocolate Beetroot Cake, and discussing different recipes for healthier desserts.

Your contributions and ideas for the launch of our new menu in March will also be greatly appreciated and this workshop will provide the time and opportunity to discuss these.

As you are aware I have been slightly out of commission for the last few weeks due to an operation on my arm; however I am happy to report that recovery is going well, and I am slowly getting back to normal, raring to go with new menu ideas, workshops and healthy eating inspiration for our children.

We experienced a new dish on the menu this week, Nandos Style Chicken with Mango Salsa; this proved to be a hit with the children really enjoying it!

I have attached the recipe for you to try at home if you so wish.

Please come along to the workshop, it will be great to see you. Remember spaces are limited.

Many thanks

Mrs Quinn
