Thank you for helping us launch our Monster Phonics programme with your amazing support for our MONSTER DAY on Thursday 5th October. Children (and staff) came to school dressed as their favourite monster and we of course had a MONSTER LUNCH. . Our fun Monster Lunch included special Miss Oh No's doughnuts (she lives in one apparently) and chocolate sauce served from Tricky Witch's magic cauldron, with children's favourites plus our daily healthy baked potatoes and choice of salad and fruit. All children having our monster lunch will also get a FREE monster sticker and, if they are infants, also a FREE monster book. We promote our school meals with special fun lunches at least once a term. Sometimes this is when numbers are counted which is why many schools do it but our main reason at Woodside is because we know our lunches are healthy and sustainable and much better for children than the Ultra Processed Food (UPF) which are often part of children's lunch boxes. Scientists have proved that Ultra Processed Food is not only bad for children's bodies, often leading to obesity and the danger later of diabetes and cardiac disease but can also affect their brains making learning more difficult and mental issues more likely.
