Staying Healthy - Sports Investigation
This term we have been learning about how to stay healthy. We set ourselves an investigation to see which sporting activity is the best for us. We tested out throwing and catching, running and skipping. We found running is the best for us.
Staying Healthy - Getting Rid of Germs
We looked at germs on hands using glittery water. We realised that germs spread really easily between people and objects around the room. We learnt how to wash our hands properly and remember this every day.
Music with Mr Cook
We have been lucky enough to have a music lesson with Mr Cook this term as a ‘special’. We love him visiting our class and having a sing song of some of our favourite songs.
Staying Healthy - Making a Salad
Mrs Belchem set us the challenging of tasting, designing, making and evaluating our own healthy pasta salad. We tried looks of different foods such as celery, beetroot, olives and cucumber. We had to decide which of these we liked and didn’t to put into our dish.
We used chopping, dicing and slicing techniques in groups to prepare the food ready for making our meals. We remembered to wash our hands and keep ourselves healthy around the food.
Using our taste test feedback we made and mixed our own pasta salads. We then had the opportunity to taste these before thinking about what we really liked and how we could improve them.
After we had finished our meals we made sure to wash up using hot soapy water.
In English we learnt the story of Why Dog Live with Man. We made our own puppets in groups to help retell the story.
We were very lucky to have a real nurse come into school to talk to us about her day job. We were able to ask her lots of questions about her job and have a look at some of the medical equipment she has. We even asked her to take Mrs Belchem’s blood pressure to show us how it works!
In maths we have been looking at numbers – writing in numerals and words; their size; number of 10s and 1s. We used a large 100 square and counters to test each other out by playing a fun game. We all got really good at using the correct vocabulary.
