Our topic this half term is ‘Healthy Me.’ We have looked at our bodies and learned the names and purposes of the main parts. We have been learning how to keep our bodies healthy by exercising and eating a balanced diet. We have even tried many new foods! We have also learned how to keep ourselves and others healthy by washing our hands correctly. As well as having a visit from St. Johns Ambulance to teach us some basic first aid.
Language, Literacy and Communication:
We have had many opportunities to practice holding pencils this term and are beginning to write different sounds. We have read the story ‘Maisy goes to hospital’ to find out what happens to us when we are ill and created our own story maps. We have also read the book ‘You are healthy’ to learn about the many other ways to keep ourselves healthy. Look out for our healthy advert we will be creating to share our knowledge!
Mathematics and Numeracy:
So far this term we have practiced many maths skills. We have counted items in the hospital and a variety of fruits and vegetables as well as finding ‘one more’ and ‘one less’ of numbers to ten. We have also learned about 2D and 3D shapes and used them to make pictures and models.
