Mrs McGhie: July 2018
What a full week we have had this week! The children have really enjoyed our 'Healthy body and mind' week.
Every day we have been out doing our Wrenbury Walk and it was lovely to see parents joining in on Thursday. We will continue to do this going forward, as a short brisk walk is good for body and mind.
On Monday some children visited the doctors surgery and learnt a little more about the work of a GP. They got to listen to their own heart and lungs, learnt about taking blood pressure and got to look inside their ears! They learnt all about the job of the heart and how to keep it healthy. We also had an assembly taken by Mrs Rowlands all about self care.
On Tuesday we all enjoyed a yoga class. The children were very good at it and said it made them very relaxed. I was very impressed with some of their balancing skills!
More exercise on Wednesday with an exercise class outside where we learnt more about how the body works when exercising.
Dr Katherine (Miss Phillip's sister) joined us on Thursday and led a fantastic lesson teaching us basic first aid. The children learnt what to do if they found someone lying on the ground following DR. AB. — Danger Response Airways Breathing. Then they learnt how to put someone in the recovery position. Katherine is a doctor in a hospital and so it was good for the children to learn how her job differs from that of a GP. That leads us to our assembly on Friday where a GP from Wrenbury surgery led an assembly and answered lots of questions about her work.
All this alongside our classroom learning led to a very busy week! In class we learnt about fixed and growth mindsets and how we can all be successful in our learning when we keep a positive hard working attitude. We also spent time on our class science topic and learnt how to build electrical circuits. The children loved having time to experiment with connecting different components and learning how circuits work.
Also this Friday Mrs Pitchford (Miss Pitchford's mum) who works for the NHS spoke to us about the importance of hand washing. She showed us the germs still on our hands after hand washing using a blue light box. She taught the children how to wash their hands properly to the tune of Happy Birthday!
In Literacy we continued learning about poetry and the children wrote their own monster raps concentrating on rhyme and rhythm. In maths we have been playing maths games and consolidating work on place value.
In art/DT we have made clay nature prints which we will be making into key chains or necklaces.
In French the children were given a final vocabulary sheet for the year. Madam Sharpe would like the children to keep them safe and use for revising.
Have a good rest this weekend base 3!
