Healthy Lifestyles

Preventing Unintentional Injuries

Many accidental injuries and emergencies can be prevented by taking another look at your family's environment, lifestyles, and risks. Finding problems early and responding quickly is vital. This can help keep situations manageable, and stop them from becoming an emergency.

It's important to be alert and to follow a program designed to help you and your family stay safe.

Each year in England, an average of 60 children under five years die from injuries in and around the home. Seven children died on the roads in 2014 and there are also approximately 40,000 emergency hospital admissions and 450,000 visits to A&E departments.

Keep a list of emergency numbers in your home. This list should include the police, fire, poison control center, local emergency service (if different than 999), local hospital, and your healthcare providers.

Design a Healthy Lunch Box Competition!

We have been trying really hard here at The Willows to promote healthier eating and lifestyles. With this in mind, we would love it if everyone in school had healthier snacks in their packed lunches! Over the next ____________ weeks, we shall be holding a competition to design a healthy packed lunches poster. Below, you will find a copy of the Eatwell Guide which shows you the different elements of a healthy meal. This will help you to create a fantastic, informative poster promoting healthier lunches, and…. don’t forget the .drink!

It’s up to you how you present your poster. Here are some suggestions:

  • A colourful poster with some catch phrases to promote the healthy message, along with ideas for what to put inside
  • A labelled drawing of a healthy lunch box
  • A lunch box collage with labels/packaging/ magazine pictures of the contents
  • A 3D lunch box with 3D contents made from foam, fabric, card etc.

There will be 4 winners from each phase - EYFS, Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2, whose posters will be displayed around the building. The closing date is:

Make sure you put your name on your poster!  Good luck everyone!
