Are we healthy?

Written by  on Friday, 13 February 2015.

This half term we have been finding out about what keeps us healthy.

We began to understand which food groups our favourite foods are part of and whether we are eating a balanced diet. We enjoyed designing a balanced packed lunch.

We learnt that keeping clean is a very important part of staying healthy and wrote instructions for washing our hands and cleaning our teeth. Thank you Colgate for our free toothbrush and toothpaste sample, so that we could follow our instructions at home!

We also know exercise is another important way to stay healthy, so in PE we mastered our throws, dodged and remembered our ‘sticky feet’ to play netball and got very out of breath dancing the Cumberland Reel!

Rest and reflection also help to keep us healthy and in RE we thought about places that are special to us; where we feel safe and can relax. Then we reflected on why the church is a special place for Christians.

In PSHCE we learnt that drugs can be helpful or harmful and how we should look after medicines to stay safe.

Do you know where your food comes from?

In geography we learnt the names of the seven continents and five oceans and where they are in the world. We invited Tesco’s to come and visit us. Zoey and Julie showed us how to make bread dough; the yeast smelled quite peculiar! They had brought samples of bread from the different continents for us to try; the Mediterranean (or pizza!) bread went down very well!

What is an algorithm?

In computing we made jam sandwiches! This helped us to understand an algorithm; a sequence of instructions or a set of rules that are followed to complete a task.  We realised when you write an algorithm you need to include clear and precise, step-by-step instructions or the task can get very messy! We spent a lot of time de-bugging our algorithms to make them perfect.
