Banbury Family Inclusion Day 2

On Thursday 24th April, students from the Banbury family took part in the second of three inclusion days.

The focus of the day was educating students on the importance of leading healthy and active lifestyles, as well as developing their confidence, self-esteem and sense of belonging.

The day involved many team building activities to develop confidence and trust amongst the group. The students also took part in Benchball, Table Tennis, Badminton, Orienteering, Team Combat and Trampolining, all activities where designed and delivered in a way to promote self-worth, engagement and confidence to take action.

Following on from the previous inclusion day where students learnt about different food groups, and what constitutes a balanced diet. Students were given the task of making a healthy pizza showing they have considered all food groups and created a balanced meal. Each student made their own pizza which involved making the dough and preparing their own toppings. A very successful cooking session with all students eating one of their pizzas for lunch and taking the rest home to give to share with their parents.

Comments from students;

“Can I come back next Friday?”

“I’m going to teach my mum how to make pizza”

“I love trampolining; I’m going to get one for my birthday”

“I can wait until the next inclusion day”

The aim of the inclusion days is to use PE as a tool to develop confidence, self-worth as well as educate students on the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle.
