We have had a busy couple of weeks in Class One! Last week saw the school take part in Wellbeing week where we thought about ways to keep us happy and healthy. We did lots of wellbeing activities including making our own jigsaw puzzle pieces which helped to make a whole school jigsaw, we designed our own Elmer the elephants when thinking about how we are all unique and we also thought about ways of staying healthy by eating lots of fruit and vegetables.
This week we took part in the Harvest Experience day on Tuesday which was such good fun! We started the day by looking at lots of different stations on the playground which taught us about different types of harvesting; harvesting of fields, gardens, oceans, grain and flock. Then in class, we did lots of activities linked to these ideas. Today we are bringing home our amazing ‘harvest of the Earth’ pots where we learnt about clay and rocks from underground and gave thanks for gifts from the Earth, We hope they come in useful for storing lots of trinkets around your homes!
In other learning, we have been continuing with our theme of ‘people who help us stay safe and healthy’. We have been learning about fire-fighters and hospital workers this week and the children have had great fun dressing up as doctors and conducting assessments on ‘poorly patients’! We have been thinking about what we might do in the event of an emergency and you can test us on this at home to see if we can remember the special emergency numbers we can ring (999 or 112) if we encounter an emergency. We have also been looking at X-ray images and bones and we loved having a visit from our school skeleton Mr Bony! We have been busy labelling his body parts with lots of post-it notes and have loved singing the ‘funny bones song’ which you can find at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MleP_40Bpg
We are now missing 4 of our class badges which are given out on a Friday (values, achievement and effort badges), Without these returned to us, we are unable to award them to new children each Friday which is obviously very sad for the children who have been chosen. If you are yet to return a badge to class, please can we have them back ASAP! Thank you!
