Primary and Secondary Schools

I was commissioned by Ealing Council’s School Health Improvement Team to develop this talk for Ealing Council’s Great Weight Debate in October 2017, and it has been adapted to deliver a high impact assembly to primary school pupils.

Content of assembly: Key risks associated with over consumption of sugar, and easy, practical demonstrations of how pupils can BE SUGAR SMART. Pupils leave empowered and positive about steps they can take to help themselves consume a little less processed sugar.

Duration of assembly: 30 mns (set up 10 mns before)

Target audience: Appropriate and of benefit to Year 1 – Year 6, tailored to either KS1 or KS2

Technical requirements: Laptop/projector for power point slides (brought on a USB key or emailed in advance), and a table at the front of hall for demonstration resources/props

Pupil involvement: 3 or 4 pupil volunteers will be asked to help during the assembly. Pupil engagement throughout talk.

Parking:  Where no free parking is available schools are asked to arrange parking/cover the cost of parking.

Cost of assembly: £65

Prizes: A set of our unique Healthy Eating Top Trumps cards will be awarded to a pupil during the presentation.

FEEDBACK from teachers:

“Natasha spoke to us in such a fun and exciting way. We came away buzzing and full of facts and knowledge to share with our school, our friends and our families. We are now sugar smart ambassadors for our school and are so excited about making a real difference thanks to motivation and knowledge from Natasha. Thank you!” Head of Early Years, Mount Carmel Catholic School, Ealing “Thank you so much for your inspirational assembly on being ‘Sugar Smart’. The children were all engaged and you reinforced the messages taught in the PSHE health and wellbeing topic. Your assembly has helped refresh our ongoing efforts to encourage healthier choices, especially at lunchtimes. We hope to set up a breakfast challenge for the children to try to eat Wheetabix in the morning. The messages you gave about reading labels on food packaging are so important and we plan to organise a maths related activity linked to this, possibly linked to fitness too.. Also, the school council have suggested a healthy tuckshop at breaktimes to encourage children to eat more fruit. We really appreciate your visit and will highly recommend.” PSHE leader, Woodlands Academy, Ealing  

We look forward to visiting your school and helping you to convince your pupils of the need to BE SUGAR SMART.
