On Thursday 28th March 2019, EYFS celebrated ‘Healthy Summer Stall Festival’. Each class designed a stall which represented selling one kind of healthy food (fruits, vegetables, sandwiches, ice-cream etc.). This was a great opportunity for the children to role-play buying and selling from the stalls while they enjoyed lots of lovely and colourful healthy foods to eat and drink. Children previously had discussions in their classrooms about healthy eating, how to avoid wasting food, and way of proper waste disposal. Our approach to educating the students on the value of the Qatari riyal using fake money was also a smart way to get the children to understand the value of our currency (QAR). It was a successful event and a very fun day for the students. Our students also had the opportunity to reflect on children around the world that may not have access to good food and water. In the end, we focussed on sharing of resources and the students have learned how to share with others.
On 15th October 2018, the Early Years Foundation Stage celebrated ‘World Food Day’ in the school. The children had discussions about healthy eating, avoid wasting food, and proper waste disposal.

The children also know how to clean up their lunch boxes nicely and put the waste in the bin properly.
