Today Your Child Learned…

Dear Parent & Guardian, 
We are excited to share that your child has completed the following PSHE lesson. Check out our overview and top tips to support their development…

Today’s PSHE Lesson

Junk Food (What Is In Junk Food And What Is Type 2 Diabetes?)

We’ve learned how eating excessive amounts of junk food in our diet can affect our health and the diseases or conditions this can cause. The high level of fats, salt and sugars in these foods don’t give us the balanced diet that our bodies need. Type 2 diabetes is often linked to the types of food being eaten, being overweight and inactivity. It’s a condition that can affect your everyday life and we need to educate future generations if we’re to control this lifelong condition.

What We Covered In The PSHE Lesson

Here’s what we went through today…

  • How it’s our responsibility to choose and eat foods that are healthy to keep ourselves fit and well.
  • That eating junk food can lead to obesity which can lead to diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes.

How You Can Help From Home

Here’s what you can talk about during dinner…

  • Talk to your child about how junk food can make us ill if we eat too much of it.
  • Talk to your child about making healthier food choices when we eat out or choose food to buy.

Go Above & Beyond 

Here are some other ideas to support your childs PSHE lessons…

  • Remind your child about the nutrients that our bodies need to work properly.
  • Look at some of the foods that offer these nutrients and read packaging on fast food or processed items to note the amount of fat, sugars and salt that are inside.
  • Talk about what excessive amounts of fat, salt and sugar do to our bodies and, as a family, talk about planning healthier meals with maybe occasional meals that are from your less healthy choices.
  • Talk about Type 2 diabetes and its effects on the body and how you might manage this lifelong condition.
  • Talk about how this condition may be reversed if a diet is changed in time.

When it comes to your child’s development, teachers and parents are better together! By aligning our goals and education techniques, we can better realise our vision of positively preparing your child for their future.

The pupils at our school are really enjoying the lifewise scheme. The scheme is very staff-friendly and easy to monitor. More staff are now teaching lifewise as a consequence and all the DfE statutory guidance (+more) is covered. The staff at lifewise are extremely professional. As it is a digital platform, lessons are constantly being up-dated and improved.

Lifewise is a fantastic tool to use. It is easy and clear to navigate and as well as in class we have used Lifewise during remote learning sessions, whilst in lockdown. I would thoroughly recommend this 'wellbeing session' tool to any school. It is exceptional.

Lifewise was so helpful for my online ELSA sessions. The format gave the children the chance to express their emotions. They loved the quiz and enjoyed the conversation.
