Emotional health and well-being

The children have been learning how to keep their minds healthy. We talked about how our emotions might change and how that some things might happen in our lives that might affect our emotions. The children learned that by having a good diet, talking to other people about how they feel and by having some time to relax and be mindful, they can look after their emotions and feelings.

Each week, the children take part in Cosmic Yoga where they develop their strength and balance, concentrate on breathing and empty their minds.

The children join their peers once a week during a lunchtime Cosmic Yoga club.

The children have developed a new passion for ‘Doodling’. They learned that like Yoga, there are many benefits to Doodling.

The children enjoy a quick 5 minute Doodle in their free time and a longer session during the lunchtime Doodle Club with their peers.

Healthy Eating Experts

In Science, the children have been learning how to keep their bodies and minds healthy. They discussed the drinks that we have; our likes and dislikes and made predictions as to which drink contained the most sugar.

By learning how to read the nutritional values, the children discovered which drinks were the most and least healthy and how to make swaps to make sure they were not having too much sugar in their diets.

The children learned that animals and humans need to eat a balanced diet to stay healthy. We learned that each food groups has a different job to keep different parts of our body healthy.

We planned and made a healthy pizza to make sure the toppings we included were balanced to make it a healthy meal choice.

Super Scientists!

 

 

Over the last few weeks, we have been learning what animals and humans need eat to stay healthy.  We know that all animals and humans need a balanced diet to make sure they get all the food groups they need for energy, growth, vitamins and minerals.

We know that birds are omnivores which means they eat both meat and plants.  Using our knowledge, we designed and made bird feeders, then observed which birds were in our school gardens and collected some data.

We looked at the data we collected and discussed which birds were most and least common in our garden.  We learned how birds migrate to warmer countries in the Winter.
