Today we learnt the Green Cross Code! Mrs Kinderman, our crossing patrol officer helped us to cross the road safely. We know that we must STOP, LOOK and LISTEN and cross the road holding an adult’s hand.
We also discussed the importance of wearing our viz jackets everyday to school. Thank you to The Finlay Foundation for the free donation of high viz jackets.
We are learning all about ourselves and how to keep ourselves healthy and safe. As part of this topic, we looked at dental hygiene. We were lucky to have Mrs Bradly, a dental hygienist in Oak Class today. She talked about healthy and unhealthy foods and explained why a sugary snack should be eaten after a meal. The children practised the correct method for brushing teeth on a variety of fun models. They all received a goody bag to take home today.
We listened to the story of The Gruffalo and talked about different animal homes and habitats. We felt quite sorry for the Gruffalo as he did not have a home of his own. So, we decided to build him a den! Our dens had a fire, to keep him warm, a soft bed made out of leaves, a bathroom, footpath and garden.
