This morning, Year 2/1 learnt all about the importance of eating a rainbow of colour! We investigated the different benefits of eating different coloured foods. We learnt that red foods help to protect our heart and memory and green foods help to strengthen our hair, finger nails and bones. Using our new knowledge, we had great fun making our own colourful fruit faces and then eating them. Yum!
The children in Reception would like to say a big thank you to Mr Wardle for our ice lollies this week. They have really cooled us down!
In PSHE Year 5 have been thinking about how we should and shouldn’t treat people. We wrote ideas for each on paper slips then shared our thoughts. Finally we decided that nobody deserves to be treated badly so we scrunched those ideas up and threw them away! We are going to keep thinking about the message – treat people with kindness all the time.
Year One have had a fantastic afternoon in the hall learning all about Stoke on Trent, the world, different religions and cultures. The children behaved so wonderfully and asked some amazing questions. Thank you to all of the very knowledgeable children and adults in the hall that shared their amazing information with us! Take a look at our blog to find out more.
We are celebrating British culture and diversity in the week beginning 18th June. We have put together a short video that showcases some of the great aspects of British culture. How many famous faces can you recognise from the clip?
We have been thinking about the people we care for in SEAL over the past couple of weeks. First we thought about relatives we care for and how we can show them we love them by giving them cuddles or helping them around the house. Then we read a lovely story about how our family make us feel valued and special. This afternoon we discussed how we also care for our friends and talked about why our friends are our friends e.g. They make us smile, they play games with us and they have similar interests.
Also a big thank you to the children who have been reading at home 4 times a week.
For ‘Golden Time’ this week, the children in Year 5/1 chose to play football and make slime. Here are some of the children having fun with the stretchy, sticky, slimy, messy…non-Newtonian fluid.
Well done to Leila on obtaining her promise certificate from Rainbows. We all know that Leila must make an amazing Rainbow because she always works so hard and listens so beautifully. Well done Leila, we are very proud of you.
In Year Three, we have been thinking about what we want to be when we grow up! We have used a website to help us to work out what we need to achieve our dream jobs! We have looked at how much we will earn and what we need to do to get there. Today we started drawing a map to show the path we need to take to reach our goal destination. Then we thought about what would happen if we didn’t try our best and how the path might look slightly different. We’ve got lots of future doctors and teachers and chefs and other wonderful professions in our classroom so let’s make sure that we all work hard to follow the right path!
Year 5 have done a wonderful job of making their memory boxes. They look great and will hopefully help them to keep lots of lovely things in as memories. Children want to put in their boxes: tickets, cards, objects, photos, coins and items from when they were babies.
