Our Body UTW 

Learning Objective: To make observations of people.

We explored what was inside our bodies. We drew around one of our friends in class and then talked about and had a feel of what was inside our own body. After that we watched a video on our body and explored some different body books. Finally we built a skeleton together and looked at and matched some x-ray photographs to the skeleton.

Our New Years Resolutions 

In class we celebrated our achievements from last year and then thought about and made some resolutions for this year. 

Epiphany

LO To recall a religious story

The Feast of Epiphany is celebrated in churches, usually on the 6th January. It is also known as the Three Kings Day and it marks the official end to the festive Christmas season for Christians. To celebrate Epiphany in class we talked about how and why the three kings went to see baby Jesus,  some of the different traditions around the world and made a special Mexican food tradition ‘3 kings bread’, it was very tasty!

Painting On Ice!

LO To Talk about similarities and differences and why things happen.

We painted on blocks of ice and rubbed a sheet of paper on top to make a picture. We also explored mixing colours and talked about what was happening as we were doing this. How does it feel? What is happening to the ice? Why is starting to melt? What colour will you try and make?

 Kid Safe

During Kidsafe this week Miss Messenger and KS talked about how to stay safe when playing on the computer and watching films or playing games.

 Making guacamole 

Learning Objective: To eat a healthy range of foodstuff and understand the need for variety.          

Making healthy guacamole. We used one of the fruits (avocado) from Handa's basket as a main ingredient to make guacamole. We used our senses and physical skills to squash, mash, feel, smell and if we were feeling adventurous even taste it. We then compared the guacamole we made to one bought in a shop.

Learning Objective : To observe the effects exercise has on our body. 

We explored our heart beats and tested out the three different stethoscopes (one we made, plastic one and a real metal stethoscope) to see which one worked the best to hear our heartbeat after our Phunky 15 exercises. We then cooled down with some balancing.

RE                                                                                                                                                                  In our RE we made and decorated a cross to remember that God loves everyone
