We’ve started the year by looking at our Topic ‘Healthy Me’. We have learnt about the different ways of keeping healthy, including how we can ensure we eat a balanced diet, why it’s important to exercise and how sleep effects our health. We are completing a DT project where we design, make and evaluate a healthy and balanced 3 course meal, although it is clear that the children’s favourite part is the eating!
In English, we have been looking at ‘Stories with Familiar Settings ’and focussed on ‘Voices in the Park’ and ‘The Hodgeheg’ which both take place in the Park. One of our favourite lessons was when we made a mini world for Max to live in. We had to think about how to keep him cosy and sheltered as well as thinking about how he could get water and food. We then moved onto looking at poetry and we wrote a poem together using some phrases that we collected about Autumn. You can find a copy of our poem just under the pictures!
In P.S.H.E. we thought about the different connections that we have with other members of the class. Some were as simple as having the same coloured eyes or hair, but we also had connections such as enjoying the same hobbies, going to the same clubs, having the same family situation etc. We used a ball of wool to show all of our connections!
