Eating the Alphabet – Literacy ENG 0-12a/LIT 0-13a/LIT 0-21a

Successful Learners 

For our topic this term, the Sunflower’s have enjoyed exploring lots of healthy foods.  Each child has actively participated by matching the initial sounds to the correct foods.  Everyone enjoyed overwriting the letters and food names  and decorated their food afterwards.  We are currently making an eating the alphabet wall as a class as we go which looks fab! All children have engaged in our phonics songs and hard work tasks during literacy topic time.  Well done Sunflowers!

 

Eco/ Sustainable Development Global Goal 2 – Zero Hunger

Successful Learners 

The Sunflower’s all took part in our Global Goal activity as we focused on the difference between and empty and full plate.  All children were able to add foods of their choice to their plate and watch it go from empty to full.  We then looked at the difference! Most pupils were able to point to and name the food on their plate too.  Some pupils  were able to show understanding of  a hungry and full tummy using our board visuals.

Afterwards, each child engaged in water play and sand play and danced to beach party music.  In the afternoon, the sun was shining  and the Sunflower’s enjoyed outdoor play in the sunshine.  Each child cooled down with a tasty ice lolly. What a brilliant day – we are almost summer holiday ready!
