In January we started our Change4Life Club afterschool on a Tuesday. The children started off by writing in their C4L booklets and discussing what targets we could set ourselves. We spoke about the importance of fluids to hydrate ourselves and the children predicted which of the drinks that were provided would have the most and least sugar in them. They predicted from least to most amount of sugar would be: water, orange juice, Ribena, Lucazade, Milkshake, Pepsi and Coke. Then we weighed out the sugar and put them in order, the results amazed us at how much sugar is in our drinks, even in orange juice! After looking at the sugar in drinks we then did some activities like dodgeball, cups and saucers and Treasure Island. We got really hot and sweaty but had a great time! Our targets for this week are to swap fizzy drinks for water and to do 15 minutes of extra activity every day.

Just Dance Fun - C4L Club
C4L - 02/11/17
Not even rain stops our Change for Life club! When the rain pours the children still came to club and took part in some Just Dance fun! The children chose all of their favourite songs and copied the dance moves, keeping them active and moving. Even Miss Littlewood and Miss Wells joined in! At the end the children spoke about the importance of staying active even when it's cold outside, they were then set some targets to eat a piece of fruit and do 10 minutes of exercise after school and all left with a piece of fruit and a smile on their faces.
