Before the holidays the Whole School were learning about how to stay fit, safe and healthy.
First Mrs Murch came and introduced us to Pantasaurus, he is a very special dinosaur who knows all about keeping himself safe. He taught us about good and bad touch and what to do if we feel uncomfortable or unsafe when someone touches us.
Can you remember what a good touch feels like?
Can you tell your grown up what a bad touch is? Can you remember where we should never be touched unless we are poorly?
Can you remember what he told us we should do if we get a funny feeling in our tummy?
Can you remember the song we learned to remind us? Parents can follow the link below for further information about what the children were taught.
We also talked about how to keep ourselves safe on the internet, we didn’t realise that when we talk to someone in a game that it is a real person.
We learned that we need to be careful not to tell strangers on the internet any information about ourselves.
We learned how to use hector if we see anything on a computer which we don’t like and know to tell a grown up in school.
Next we talked about how we needed to eat a balanced diet to be healthy. We decided to make a Vegetable Stir Fry to share with our friends. Everyone who wanted to, helped to prepare the vegetables but we decided that Miss Deighton would do the cooking because no one wanted to get burnt. We sat behind some tape while she was cooking because we didn’t want to get splashed or any hot food to fall on us. Once the vegetables were cooked, we all had a taste.
Can you remember some of the foods which are healthy?
Can you remember the foods which are unhealthy if we eat too much?
What was your favourite vegetable?
Were there any vegetables which you didn’t like?
Next we had the opportunity to get fit, we went to the hall and took part in lots of different exercises. This really made us hot and sweaty, it made us out of breath and made us really thirsty. Do you think exercising is worth the effort?
Yes, because it makes you big and strong – Israel
Yes, it makes your muscles grow like your dad – Markai
Yes, you can run fast as a rocket-Reece
Yes, because then you can grow fit and strong and be healthy, you might get fat if you don’t exercise -Effie
What is your favourite form of exercise?
The next day we talked about how to stop each other from getting poorly. We shared our ideas about why we get ill….
The germs go in your belly and make you sick -Maddie
Sometimes you eat food that makes you sick, when you don’t like it -Alfie
I been poorly when I was coughing so much -Harry
How do we get the germs in our body?
We carried out an experiment, we put glitter in hand sanitiser and pretended it was germs. We put it on our hands and went to do our independent learning. Later Mrs Murch stopped us and we looked around to see where the glitter germs had spread. They were everywhere!
We talked about what we could do to stop the germs from spreading and decided that washing our hands with soap and water is the best way to get remove the germs.
What have we been learning?
How to keep ourselves healthy and safe.
That it is not only the responsibility of adults to keep us healthy, that we can help to keep ourselves healthy and safe too.
