To finish our ‘Healthy Living’ topic, we had fun baking healthy flapjacks! The recipe is detailed in the ‘Class News’ page.
This week we have been learning about keeping our teeth healthy. We practised brushing our teeth correctly for two minutes and we carried out an experiment looking at the effect of acid on our teeth. We used hard boiled eggs to demonstrate the effect of acid on the shell of an egg which is similar to the effect it would have on our teeth. We found out that vinegar, fruit juices and fizzy drinks have a bad effect on our teeth.
Over the Christmas period, we enjoyed lots of activities.
We created an Advent calendar to count down the days to Christmas. Each day we were required to carry out an act of kindness. We each had an Advent friend who we were especially kind to over the Advent period!
We made candle holders and decorations from clay as Christmas gifts to our loved ones.
We made abstract Christmas tree cards from scraps of leftover paper.
Jessica wrote a fabulous Christmas shape poem.
