For PSHE we have been talking about keeping ourselves healthy. We undertook an experiment using eggs, to look at how different levels of sugar affect our teeth. We left raw eggs in cups of water, Coca-Cola, vinegar and orange juice. The results were amazing and we learnt that too much sugar and not enough brushing can cause damage to your teeth. Have a try at home and see the results for yourself!
On Wednesday this week, we had a whole day thinking about our feelings and how we can help our minds remain healthy. We were lucky to be visited by a lady who took us on a yoga journey to help relax us.
In class we drew around our bodies, thinking about where we feel all our feelings and the impact it has on our bodies. We also made some glitter sensory bottle to use as an aid to help us calm down or relax. We had a very enjoyable day.
Bugs & Beasties Topic
This term we are learning all about Bugs and Beasties.
We have taken a habitat walk to the top field and to the bottom playground to search for Bugs and Beasties. We threw a hoop on the floor to see what we could see. We learnt that the smaller bugs like living near the playground, whereas some bugs like living amongst the long leaves and grass. We also received some caterpillars to look after.
At the end of term our caterpillars spun themselves into their chrysalides and slept for a whole ten days. On the last week of term they climbed out and emerged as beautiful butterflies! We said a fond farewell to them and released them to enjoy their new habitat in the top field.
To round up our learning we designed and built our own bug houses to put in our outside spaces at home, we considered what minibeasts need and what their natural habitats looked like before we started. Miss Bunyard says they all look GREAT! Do you agree?
