Little Miss Healthy's Quest
Over the last couple of days, Little Miss Healthy has been informing us of the importance of keeping our bodies healthy.
Today, she would like to ask you a question to think about and discuss with your families:
"Why are we always encouraged to drink lots of water?"
Our bodies are made of about 70 per cent water – it’s what makes up the majority of our blood, digestive juices and sweat, and it’s found in our organs and muscle cells.
Water is used to metabolise fuel, regulate body temperature and digest food. Water enables our bodies to carry out all of its functions in the day, it continually moves about and is lost in urine, sweat, tears, blood and the air we breathe. Children, in particular, need to make sure they re-hydrate, as water is the primary way they regulate their body temperature.
Little Miss Healthy would like you to listen to the information and advice on the link below:
So, keeping our bodies hydrated is vitally important to maintain good health - water makes us healthy. You know when your body is dehydrated when you start showing these signs:
Follow Little Miss Healthy's advice on drinking lots of water each day - our bodies NEED it! Keep healthy and hydrated and drink water!
Little Miss Healthy's Quest
Little Miss Healthy would like to talk to you about having a healthy mind which means that we feel good about ourselves. Having the 'feel good factor'!
To nourish our mind we need to: eat healthy, exercise regularly, stay hydrated and sleep well. This is our goal - to help us be in a positive state of well-being. By doing this, we will be able to reach our full potential, face the daily challenges life can bring and work productively.
'Meditation' and 'Yoga' can also help us to achieve a healthy mind and Little Miss Healthy thought you'd like to have a go today. If you enjoy doing them then you could make these forms of exercise part of your daily/weekly routine.
A calming technique used to help put our minds in a peaceful and relaxing place is called 'meditation'. It is an ancient practice which originated from India, several thousand years BCE.
Back in the Spring term, you all enjoyed taking part in many of the activities members of staff provided as part of our 'Healthy Journey Day'. The 'Meditation' session with Miss Rapley and Mrs Lowrie-Herz proved to be very popular with you all. Have a go at this session below this morning. Members of your family might like to join in too!

Yoga is an effective way to keep our minds healthy and our bodies physically fit. It is a form of meditation which helps us to make more responsible decisions, have better attention spans, self-awareness and self-control. It's also proven to make us happier and more flexible!

The Rift by Ben Corfield
Bob stared straight down the corridor, when he saw a door that wascovered in rust; it’s lock guarded by an old man holding a lantern, thekey hanging on an old fraying string round his neck. When heapproached him Bob asked him a question, but he didn't answer! Thenthe old man wrote quickly on a piece of paper, “I don't have a tongue”.So Bob went home to come back the next day. On returning the nextday, he barged into the old man, knocking him to the floor, whilst yankingthe key off the string. Quickly, he turned the key in the lock, rust felldown like autumn leaves as he turned the key and pushed the dooropen. He rushed into the room; suddenly the door closed behind him. Heheard a squawk coming from a mysterious rift and walked through it, butthen he realized he was surrounded by a huge pile of giant eggs.Suddenly, Bob realized he was in a giant nest of pterodactyl eggsperched in the canopy of a giant forest. He knew he should find a waydown and escape before the pterodactyl mum came back. Five hourslater he was still searching for the rift that brought him to this prehistoricland. He gazed around him took a deep breath and went to find water.Bob decided to climb a hill to see if he could see the rift, unsuccessful hefound a cave and gave up for the day. He would try again tomorrow. Thenext day whilst standing at the entrance to the cave he was losing hope;he looked to the right and couldn’t believe his eyes. There in thedistance he saw the rift as bright as the stars. Using a sharp rock, hecarved a note into the rough cave wall saying, ‘look to your right, you willget home!’. Swiftly, he left the cave and sprinted eagerly towards the riftand home.

Introducing...Little Miss Healthy
After having been inspired by your teachers at Trinity in their fitness video during lock down, our new School Value 'Little Miss Healthy' wanted a piece of the 'action'...and here she is!
Today, Little Miss Healthy would like you to put your trainers on and get moving!
Whatever you do, whether it's; dancing around in your front room, circuits in your back garden, following Joe Wicks' routines or being out in the fresh air on your daily walks - whatever the exercise - take a photograph and send it in to us at the Blog, to give us a snap-shot of what you've been up to during lock down.
It's as simple as that! Happy Monday to you all!
Mr Inquisitive's Quest
To end the week on inspirational figures, Mr Inquisitive would like to introduce you to a lady who was also very inquisitive and a great lover of Maths. Her name is Katherine Johnson.
Katherine Johnson was an American mathematician . She made important contributions to the United States space program during her career at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Her work helped send astronauts to the Moon. Katherine was known as a 'computer'; she was a human calculator and questioned mathematical theories to help spaceships reach their destinations and return to earth safely. She was different to the other human computers and this was because she asked a lot of questions.
Katherine's life story is told in the clip below. Click on the link;
Sending a rocket into space, is like throwing a ball into the air. At first, the force of the throw sends a ball up, up, up but as its energy runs out the ball starts to falls back down to the ground. Where the ball lands, depends on what angle the ball was thrown, how high and how fast it flew. Now, because Maths has its own language, Katherine could ask those questions; How high would the rocket ship go? How fast would it travel? She could answer these questions using numbers, which provided the all important answer to where would the spaceship land because it has to land in a specific spot - and safely because it has people inside.
Maths is pivotol when sending a spaceship into space and due to Katherine's inquisitiveness and curiosity of Maths, in 1969 she helped Apollo 11 to get to the moon and then in 1970 she worked on the Apollo 13 mission.
Being inquisitive is vitally important in our learning. We hope you remember the famous people Mr Inquisitive has introduced you to this week and let them be an inspiration to you. Like Albert Einstein said, "Question Everything!"
Mr Inquisitive's Quest
Mr Inquisitive would like to introduce you to Marie Curie who was a world-famous Scientist. She conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. Marie was very inquisitive and curious about Science.
Marie Curie (1867-1934)
Who was Marie Curie?

Being inquisitive is about exploring the world around you, building on your level of understanding and being curious about why things are the way they are.
Marie Curie adopted an inquisitive outlook that enabled her to build up knowledge and skills that helped her to progress.
What an incredible role model she is to us all! We hope you enjoyed learning about the life of Marie Curie.
