Oh my goodness, what a week we have had! We have thoroughly enjoyed our 'Wellbeing week'. We began our week with a talk about what 'mental health' meant. With the help of 'The Blob Tree' we talked about how to identify our feelings and then how to help ourselves when we do find that our mind feels sad or overloaded. We had lots of suggestions as to how to calm ourselves and feel peaceful again but decided, above all, that talking was what would help us the most.
Our next activity was tag rugby- what fun we had! Everyone got well and truly stuck in — enjoying the fresh air and exercise. We also spotted a few rather talented rugby players. If this is something that you really enjoyed, why not go and look at our local teams an clubs? Following this we had a wonderful yoga session led by Shelly from The Ministry of Yoga. The children again really enjoyed this and did a great job, really focusing on what they needed to do. I think we may see a few budding yogis in our class! After this busy morning, we then had sports day. Year 6- your last one! You did a great job, helping to run the event and to support your peers in their races. Thank you to everyone who supported us.
On Wednesday, with Miss Lake at the helm, we shifted our focus to science, learning all about electricity and electrical circuits. The children learned some key information through discussion and models, then spent time applying their newfound knowledge through experiments. Finally, they created their own circuits and made goodbye cards (which lit up) for their buddies !
We have also been looking at healthy food and, in particular vegetarian food as this connects with our RE learning Cooking was the final piece of a topic on this. Today the children made some delicious dhal and chapattis — they had to weigh, measure and make their food which they then enjoyed ans shared with parents at the end of the day.
Another wonderful week Base 5 — lets enjoy every moment!
