Today we all got to make a sandwich! We had ham, cheese, chicken, lettuce, tomato, onion, cucumber and carrot to choose from. We all spread a little butter on our bread (some of us chose not too) and chose our fillings. They were delicious! After, we recorded what we had put in our sandwich and considered if we had used something from every area of the Eat-well plate. Some of us had so we decided to improve our sandwich we would add more vegetables. Some of us had not so we decided to add some cheese (diary) or some tuna/ham/egg (protein). We have had lots of discussions about how many portions of fruit and veg we should eat a day and how many glasses of water we should drink. I think we are ready to make some fantastic healthy swaps!
Today we had visitors into our class to talk about a balanced diet. We talk about the things we would usually have in our lunchbox and considered any healthy swaps we could make. For example instead of a chocolate bar we could have a piece of malt loaf or a rice cake, instead of a jam sandwich we could have a tuna pitta bread. The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and our visitors were very impressed with with our knowledge!
Today we explored how many syllables are in words by clapping them out as we said the name of different things such as bell, caterpillar, umbrella, tiger. The children worked in groups to sort the picture cards into those that had 1,2,3 or 4 syllables in their name. We are getting really good at it! Ask us to show you how many syllables their are in our name.
We headed outside as a Year group to complete our weekly mile. We enjoyed getting some fresh air and talking to our friends. It definitely blew the cobwebs away and burnt off some energy so we were ready to head back inside and continue our learning.
As part of our 'What Makes Me Special' topic we looked at the organs inside our body and where we think you might find them. The children explained their reasoning behind their choices. We then found out more about what each organ's job is, where in the body you will find it and, in the case of the vital organs, the bones which protect them.
The children thoroughly enjoyed their first music lesson with Mr Kirkland. They really impressed us with the amount they remembered from F2 and were fantastic and following the instructions they were given!
