P1/2 had a great time at the Seabird Centre today! This morning, we had lots of fun exploring the rock pools and finding out about the creatures that lived in them. We went to three different areas of the beach to explore and we even got to collect some ‘marine minibeasts’ to put in a tray of water! We were then able to have a closer look at them moving around. We then had lunch outside on the grass as it was such a sunny day. After lunch we went back out to the beach to learn about food chains. Some of us got to wear fancy masks to act out a sea life food chain and then we sorted some food chain cards into the correct order in our groups. We finished off our day by making some of our own food chains in the sand, using our fingers to draw the shapes and stones, shells and seaweed to make them look more realistic! We had a super day in the fresh sea air and we were all very tired on the bus journey home! Well Done P1/2! What a lovely day!
P1/2 have been very busy this term! We have enjoyed learning all about how to keep our bodies healthy and we did a fantastic assembly on this too. Here are some of the things that we have learned!
We started off by learning all about what foods to eat and how to have a balanced diet. We even planned some balanced meals and lunches and carried out a survey to see what our favourite fruits and vegetables were. We now know that we need to try our best to eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
We then went onto find out how to brush our teeth properly and what things are good and bad for our teeth. We were very surprised at how long 2 minutes was when we were pretending to brush our teeth in class! We also learned about the importance of hand washing to stop us from getting ill. We did a fun activity using glitter to show how easily germs can be spread. We enjoyed practising our hand washing at the water tray and we tried our best to remember all the different steps. We then looked at how much sleep we need at our age and we thought about how we feel when we are tired. We finished off our healthy body work by looking at how medicines can help us to feel better when we are ill and we now know the importance of using these safely. We also thought about who can help us to feel better (dentists, doctors, nurses etc).
Last week, P1/2 also took part in a Tesco workshop. We got to make our own muesli by mixing together lots of different ingredients. We also found out how much sugar is in some cereals that we eat, as well as popular fizzy drinks. We had lots of fun eating our very own muesli afterwards!
Well Done for all your hard work this term P1/2. Keep it up!
