We are the Health Council!
We are looking forward to restarting our Health Council meetings for the New Year! We will be finishing off our ‘Food and Fitness’ theme and collecting evidence in the hope of securing our next Healthy Schools Award. We will be working very hard to make sure that Wats Dyke is as healthy as can be!
Today we had our first health council meeting. We appointed our chair and vice chair. Well done to our chair Jake, and our vice chair Lucas!
Wats Dyke’s new health and sports captains have been elected!
Congratulations to Joseph Robinson, Jake Barlow, Kory Weston Jones, Mitchell Clare, Ted Dillon, Lucas Cupit, Marley Jones and Kiyan McKenzie Moore!
We are looking forward to continuing our progress towards our food and fitness theme this year.
What a busy year we have had as Health Captains! We have been working hard on our focus of ‘Attitudes Towards Healthy Eating’. We wanted to find out the children’s current views and the standard of healthy eating throughout Wats Dyke. We spent a few meetings working hard to create a survey to send out to the children. We made separate surveys for nursery and reception, years 1 and 2 and Key Stage 2. We then collected our findings and looked at the results. We found out that Wats Dyke children generally have a very positive attitude towards healthy eating! The main areas to focus upon were: a wider selection of fruits available for healthy snack in upper foundation phase, and the possibility of introducing a healthy tuck shop into Key Stage 2.
We wrote out these findings and passed them onto the staff in these departments. We were so pleased to have such positive results! Well done Wats Dyke!
The health council have been chosen! Ruby, Justin, Calum, George,Jackson, Tomos, harry and Lucia are looking forward to working hard on your behalf, to improve the health and well being of children and staff at Wat’s Dyke!
This year our focus is ‘Attitudes Towards Healthy Eating’. We will begin by establishing what the children’s current attitudes towards healthy foods are.
We held a vote to decide our roles within the health council:
chair person: Ruby
Vice chair person: Jackson
We decided to rotate the duty of secretary each meeting to give all members a chance to take the minutes.
2015 – 2016
Our Healthy Schools focus for this year is Personal Development and Relationships.
We have taken part in the first of 3 special ‘Personal Development and Relationships’ weeks in school. Each year group focussed on a different aspect of the theme and completed activities! We are looking forward to working on the next 2 ‘Personal Development and Relationship’ weeks during the summer term. Keep on eye out for more information on what your class will be learning on the ‘news’ tab.
We have also been busy celebrating Sports Relief and reporting to governors on our progress – see below!

Take a look at the PowerPoint that Health Council delivered to our governors in their recent Spring term meeting.
It was fantastic to see all the children and teachers dressed as famous sports people or in their sports wear for Sport Relief today. Thank you very much for all your donations, we will let you know the total raised for Sport Relief soon.
Healthy Schools Celebration Event on Friday 27th November at the Catrin Finch Centre, Glyndwr University
Well done to the Health Captains for all your hard work; Wat’s Dyke School are now the proud owners of a ‘Healthy Schools Award’. This is the fourth award we have received and focusses on hygiene.
Here we are at the celebration event, receiving the award from the Mayor.
We had a great time at the event which was attended by many local schools. We enjoyed the entertainment at the end which was led by Matt Baker, a musical entertainer. We all had fun singing and dancing!
