IDL – Health and Wellbeing

Our theme is Oliver’s vegetables. We have been learning about the different vegetables and some of the children are able to identify what each vegetable is using their words or symbols.  We explored the vegetables, put them in basin, washed them and then carefully with physical support from staff were able to cut some of the vegetables. We enjoyed smelling, feeling and on occasion tasting some of them.

The children were able to confidently hold the knife with support from the staff to cut up the vegetables from the story.  We then used the cut up vegetables to make some artwork in the afternoon. We printed using them. We looked at the different patterns and textures it created on the page. It was great fun.

Effective Contributors – Scotland’s Food and Healthy Eating

The Transition class were Effective Contributors when they started to explore Scotland’s food. They all worked together to match well-known Scottish food to it’s area of production. They then looked at eggs and discussed different ways of cooking with them and which is considered healthy and which is considered unhealthy. They all had a cracking time and eggcelled at the task.

Art and HE Activities in the Stars Class

We have had a happy week in the Stars class. We enjoyed time in the garden where we had a colour hunt and checked how our garden produce was growing. We also made scones which we ate for snack with jam and printed handprints and flowers for our ‘Friendship Garden’ wall display.

A Warm Welcome for the New Stars Class

The Stars class have settled in well to their new classroom and routine and have enjoyed doing activities together after the summer break. We learnt ‘All About Me’ and told our likes and dislikes, made friendship potions, discussed kind and unkind behaviours, read Rainbow Fish and made personalised flowers for our ‘Friendship Garden’ wall display. In the sensory garden we weeded and tidied our planters where we discovered potatoes, onions, carrots, nasturtiums and sweet peas which were planted by Mrs Gardner’s class last year.

 

POLO Day Activities

*Confident Individuals    *Effective Contributors

We did some activities this week ahead of POLO Day. We painted patterns with water and watered our planter where we are growing onions, potatoes, carrots, strawberries, nasturtiums and sweet peas. Our gladioli bulbs are starting to grow too. We made symmetrical butterfly pictures in anticipation of making a large symmetrical floor pattern today. Today we also made a water wheel (which worked really well!) and created nature’s crowns.
