Another busy and fun week for Healthy Eating Week. We began heathy eating with tasting different fruit infused water to encourage us to drink more. The children enjoyed the different tastes and voted for their favourite. The most popular water in Year 1 was lemon and the least popular was plain water. The children enjoyed moving more this week, with ball games, running, dancing and karate. They designed a poster to encourage people to move more to keep healthy. We had lots of fun making pictures from the vegetables in our playground and the children took home charts to encourage them to eat five portions of fruit and vegetables each day.
Thank you for the photos of eating together and being active together. If you have not sent a photo in, please send it so we can add to our display.
We learnt about the importance of eating whole grains and then made wholemeal blueberry muffins. They were yummy!
In Maths we have been subitising, knowing the number of objects without counting. The children have been using this knowledge to help them to solve problems.
Our whole school topic for the next few weeks is rivers. We started by reading a book call A River. The children painted their favourite setting and wrote a caption for their painting. They have made lists of the animals that might have been found in the jungle. They learnt to use commas when writing a list. We also made some boats out of clay.
In Religion we have learnt about the signs, symbols and actions used in the Eucharist. The children enjoyed acting out the Eucharist. They remembered many of the words that the priest says during mass.
