Our walk to the park!

On Tuesday 16th September, the Year 5/6 children experienced a trip to our local park. We walked to the park to complete our Integrated Studies topic. We were able to locate some of the organisations that we can access in our area.

When we arrived at the park, we were amazed at how much there was to do. There was endless meters of grass for us to run around on. There was a MASSIVE adventure playground with numerous slides and…. a SANDPIT!!
We had fun playing on the adventure playground, swinging on the swings, flying on the flying fox, making things in the sandpit, playing football and soccer, flying vortex’s around and playing with a large parachute.

Mrs Medina also planned a cooperative activity for us to do in groups. We had to work together to get our groups of 6-8 our of being tangled. It wasn’t as easier and it sounded!!

Have a look at how much fun we had!

Think about…

What is a superhero?

Now imagine you are a superhero… answer the following questions to yourself.

What is your best quality?
What are your strengths?
How did you acquire your superhero quality?
Did someone teach you? Did you learn it yourself? What is difficult?
How do you maintain your superhero quality?

I, Pearl E. White, star Tooth City news reporter and local celebrity, am looking for a nightly news co-anchor, and you are going to audition for the role!
You need to write a story on the life of a Tooth Defender and how they became a superhero.

Think about…Who, What, When, Why, How things happened in your story..

Happy writing.
I look forward to reading your audition reports and announcing my co-anchor soon.

Kind Regards,

Oral/Dental Health

Last week, the 5/6 children were visited by two members of the local Health Centre.
These two visitors gave us lots of information about Oral/Dental Health and they spoke to us about how important it is to regularly brush our teeth.

They taught us the method in which we should use to clean our teeth morning (after breakfast) and night time (before going to bed). See the poster for the explanation.

Changing your eating habits to healthy ones!

Next term we will be looking at Healthy Eating and Healthy Habits. Here is something to get you thinking while you are still on  holidays.
Can you change the things you eat to ensure you are a healthier person?

You might think you eat well, but do you know how much of each food you should be eating? The Healthy Eating Plate is a way to easily remember/see how much protein, carbohydrate, and vegetables you need in a main meal.

Have a look at the short clip which shows the use of the ‘Healthy Plate’.

Here are a few healthy recipes you might like to try while you are still home.
