Change4Life Lunchtime Club

This term, children from KS2 are taking part in a lunchtime Change 4 Life club. The Change 4 Life Programme is a healthy lifestyle programme to support primary school children. It involves lots of fun and practical activities for children, including healthy eating tips, making healthy snacks and participating in team games to encourage a healthy lifestyle.

This week, the children enjoyed participating in team games which enabled them to build up their relationships with the other children, get their bodies moving and to develop their skills in a particular sport. The children who attend the club will be Change 4 Life ambassadors for our school.
