We looked at how to clean our teeth correctly. We improvised by covering some teeth in tippex and marmite. Using a toothbrush, we then had to use water to clean the teeth fully. We quickly realised that the tippex was hard to get rid of so we must clean our teeth properly 2x every day!
To finish our topic on Healthy Living, we tasted, designed and made our own healthy pasta salads. We used new cooking techniques such as dicing, slicing and cutting to prepare some of the food. We tasted and added in cucumber, tomatoes, carrot, pepper, olives, sweetcorn and beetroot. We really enjoyed making our meals and described them as “tasty”, “crunchy” and “really yummy”. The children commented on how they’d like to make the same again at home with their parents.
To begin Year 2 we went for a walk around the school grounds. We used our senses to see what we could see, hear, feel and smell. We walked to the top playground and to the field. When we got back we planned a recount and used this to help us with our first writing pieces.
