Today we decorated biscuits following two-step instructions such as 'Put the sprinkles on top of your biscuit and the strawberry laces at the bottom of your biscuit.'
The children really enjoyed this activity and there were lots of sticky fingers (some 'accidentally' licked!). We enjoyed eating our creations at snack time!
People Who Help Us: Nurses
Today Anita, from the school nurse team, came to talk to us about how she helps keep people healthy and how we can help ourselves. We thought about how germs can spread around our classroom to make us unwell. Anita brought her magic light box that showed the children if they were washing their hands properly.
We also learned about the flu vaccine that will be offered to children next week. Anita explained this will feel like a tickle and help protect us from being poorly in the winter.
Today we made strawberry and orange jellies with fruit at the bottom. We talked about how our jellies were changing states throughout the day from 'watery' to 'wibbly wobbly' and finally to 'firm'. We enjoyed eating them during snack time.
People Who Help Us: Mrs Ball
Thank you to our cleaning lady, Mrs Ball, who came in to class on Friday afternoon to talk to the children about her job and how she keeps the school clean for us all. The children helped Mrs Ball to tidy the classroom and thought about what they can do to keep it nice.
People Who Help Us: Mr Lowe
Today Mr. Lowe, our school caretaker, came in to class to talk to the children about his job and all the things he does to help look after our school and keep it nice. Everyone really enjoyed helping Mr. Lowe to sweep the leaves in our garden, especially squashing them down into the bin.
