Taking Care of Ourselves!

This week in Reception we will be learning about how to stay healthy through what we eat                      and how we exercise and how we can take care of ourselves.

The children have been learning lots of new songs about doing things by themselves                                            and love to sing and perform the actions.

Have a listen to their fantastic singing!

Keep Safe Online by Year 6 Digital Leaders Part 1

Welcome to our e-safety advice for you. We hope this will help your children/child be safe on the internet. From the digital leader academy we have chosen some top tips, which we think will be wise to listen to.

This week our focus is passwords

  • Always keep your password a secret.
  • The best place to keep your password is in your head.
  • Create strong passwords with 6-8 characters using upper case and lower case as well as numbers and punctuation marks
  • Never give out your password to anyone even your friends
  • No one should ever use your usernames and passwords except you

Thank you, Hashim, Bailey, Jack, Luke, Owain and Jake

Our 5 Senses – Touch

Today we thought about our sense of touch. The children took it in turns to feel an object in the ‘feely’ bag and try to describe the object and guess just from touch what it could be!

002

“It’s round, fluffy and squishy.”

003

005

“It’s long, hard and sharp.”

006

016

“It feels hard and it’s long.”

018

019

“It feels like a spoon.”

020

022

“It feels hard and soft and pointy and it’s bendy. I think it’s a feather.”

024

030

“It feels like the shape of an egg. It’s hard.”

033

034

“It feels squishy, it’s soft and it’s got fur on. I think it’s a pom pom.”

035

036

“It feels bumpy, straight at the bottom but it’s bumpy in the middle on the outside. It’s metal.”

037

043

“It’s hard and pointy and its got something around it.”

044

045

“It’s hard, I think it’s white and a circle shape. It could be a stone.”

047

049

“It’s a circle, it’s hard. It’s a penny.”

051

Healthy Eating Club – Pizza!

This week we made our own pizza.

First we prepared the toppings for our pizza by chopping the mushrooms, cutting the ham, pouring the passata, grating the cheese and opening the tin of sweetcorn!

051

054

We then put together the ingredients to create the topping for our pizza.

064

They looked and smelt truly scrumptious!!

Our 5 Senses – Hearing

In Reception we are continuing with our learning on the 5 senses. Today we concentrated on using our ears to really listen.

The children talked about the sounds they thought we would hear on a walk around school and if they would be different or the same outside.

070

We then went on our walk around school to find out if we were right or if we would hear any different sounds.

015

018

019

Back in class we looked at what we had found out. Some of our guesses were right but we heard lots of sounds we had not thought of too!

071

The children really had to use their listening skills to match the sound to the picture in our Soundtracks game.

023

027

034

036

039

043

049

Ask your child about sounds in the home. Are the sounds different or the same to the sounds at school?

Our 5 Senses – Smell

Today the children were learning all about our sense of smell.

We talked about some of our favourite smells.

“I like the smell of my house.” – Eli

“I like the smell of flowers.” – Eliza

“I like the smell of chocolate.” – Kierey

“I like the smell of bonfires.” – Phoebe C

And we talked about smells we don’t like!

“I don’t like the smell of pigs, they’re dirty!” – Evie

“I don’t like the smell of my cats when they eat food and feel a bit sick.” – Finlay

We then used our sense of smell to try and guess what was in the different containers.

260

“I love orange.”

263

“The onion is disgusting!”

264

“I don’t like this one – curry it’s horrible and smells horrible!”

284

“My favourite smells are strawberries and chocolate.”

287

“The curry stinks but I like the taste.”

I hope you have been singing along with the 5 senses song!!
