In UoI this week we learned about different food groups: energy givers (carbohydrates), body builders (proteins), body protectors (fruits/vegetables) and treats. We sorted pictures and looked at our snacks daily to see what we had in our boxes. We then looked back at our choices for the family-style lunch and discussed how balanced our plates were.
On Friday we talked about germs! Ask you child to tell you about the germ experiment!
In Maths this week we looked at a dot pattern. It was amazing how many different ways of seeing the “whole” there are. We went on to make number sentences (equations) for each dot pattern.
Thank you so much to Paula’s mum and grandparents, who were our first Mystery Readers. We noticed that there are some words in German which sound just like English words. Please sign up to read to the class. The kids love the surprise and hearing each others’ home-languages!
On Friday we enjoyed a “Nude Food” snack with our K2 friends. We talked a lot about how important it is to reduce the amount of plastic we use.
Miss Kris, the ES Counsellor, came to 1D this week to talk to us about feelings. She explained how we can choose to deal with problems positively.
