Year 4 & 5 Feel Good Ambassador Training - 10th March 2017

Written on: Thursday 16 March 2017

The day started with an announcement from Councillor Grace Williams (Cabinet Member for Children and Young People in Waltham Forest). Holding the training at the Waltham Forest Feel Good Centre supported the day’s ethos: to feel good!

The children experienced three different sessions all based around ambassador training and how to plant the seed about changing other people's life for the better.  At the end of the day, the children would be the first ever ‘Feel Good Ambassador’s’ for Waltham Forest. 

The three sessions were: Supporting the Sports Council,  Supporting Change4Life and Healthy Schools and finally, Being a Feel Good Ambassador.

Before the sessions began, the children, as a group, chose the top three skills which they thought were the reasons they were chosen to be a Sports Leader. The kids chose teamwork, inclusion & passion.

Sports Council
The children looked into the roles of the Sports Council and how they can use their leadership skills to support South Grove in its development.  The children have each selected roles for themselves.   

Health and Well-Being 
Did you know that 1/100 packed lunches meet the national nutrition guidance?  This is something that the Feel Good Ambassadors have decided to focus on and will be making it their mission to improve the packed lunches at SG. So, how healthy is your lunch? The Ambassadors will be looking at lunches and giving ideas on what could be improved. You've been warned! They'll also be showing children how to use the Change4Life Sugar APP to support them. 

If you’ve not downloaded the APP ‘Food Smart’, do so.  It’s eye-opening and it’s free! 

Quiz Time- True or false?  (answers are at the bottom left)
Question 1: A can of Coco-Cola has twice as much sugar than you're allowed in a day? 
Question 2: The average child in England spends four hours a day in front of a screen? 
Question 3: 30% of Year 6 pupils are overweight. 
Question 4: There are 8,000 fried chicken shops in London. 

Becoming Feel Good Ambassadors 
Did you know there are over 100 clubs in and around WF for children? If you've ever wanted to join a club, speak to a Feel Good Ambassador who can give you all the information you need.  

Councillor Ahsan Khan (cabinet member for Health and Well-Being) concluded the day and praised the children for their behaviour and passion shown throughout the day. The children were then given their Feel Good Ambassador badges and information to support them on their journey to improve health and well-being in our school and borough.  Keep an eye out for our new ambassadors!
