A visit to the Life Education Trust Caravan

You will have all spotted the big caravan in the Broadgreen Intermediate carpark by now and the morning session was lucky to have a visit inside to meet Harold.
Check out Harold's website for some resources and the fit and healthy messages he happily gives out to children and families.

 We met Harold the friendly giraffe and Virginia who takes Harold on tour all around the South Island.  Harold couldn't come out of his house because he was too tall and he might bump the roof, so Virginia told us to look out for him eating leaves off the trees outside during the day.

 We learnt about what our body needs to be healthy and fit and the things we would need to take away if we went for a holiday to grannys.  We found out that our bodies need food, sunlight, water, exercise and oxygen to stay fit and healthy.  The children helped Virginia complete the puzzle body with all the bits that we would need.
Harold knows all about being fit and healthy so he has shared lots of his songs and special resources on his website.

We met Harold and he sang us a song and we sang him twinkle twinkle little star and then blew out all the lights on the roof of his caravan.

Thanks for letting us visit Harold, we look forward to bringing some more children over next year.
