Ko Au - Healthy Me

This term as part of our Ko Au focus, our team Te Whare Pono investigated what being healthy involves.

Over the last 6 weeks, The class have learnt about aerobic and anaerobic exercise and measured how well they could carry out a range of fitness activities. They will be revisiting regularly as part of our PE programme.

They learnt about our digestive system and what it involves, and cooked Island chop suey and a microwave steam pudding.

They also learnt about Healthy Eating - the food groups,and nutrients, you can see this on the slides Room 10 created below as part of their food inquiries. 

This year Tokoroa Intermediate is part of the Lunches in School programme, you can find out more about it here:

School Lunch Programme

The class used their learning  to analyse the food groups and nutrients in some of the lunches they've had:

                     They also found out how much sugar is in many common drinks

The class also took part in a shared Padlet on What We Eat with a class in the Marquesa Islands (North of Tahiti) and one in Ohio USA, it has been interesting to see similarities and differences.

We are currently doing another with our epals in France.
