The children are encouraged to drink water during the school day to keep them hydrated. Research has proved that remaining hydrated improves learning. In 5M the children have their water bottles on their tables throughout the day. Water bottles will be sent home each Friday for a wash and must be returned to school each Monday. The children can only have water in their bottles - no juice or flavoured water please. Water bottles can either be purchased from the school office or from any appropriate shop.
