Safety week W/C 9th October.
This week we have been looking at Keeping safe.We started the week with a visit from a lady called Helen from the NSPCC. Helen introduced us to 'Buddy' the speech bubble. Buddy was a reminder to us that when things aren't going well or we feel like we need to talk we must let an adult know.
Monday - Relationships.
In 2H we talked about safe relationships and what makes a safe relationship. We listed the people in our lives that we can trust and that keep us safe. Using play dough we made models of these people.
Tuesday - World of drugs.
Today we spent time finding out about different drugs/ medicines and their uses. We recognised their dangers and discussed when and who might need to use them. Looking carefully at packets and bottles we read the different information and warnings provided.
Some us completed a group tally chart of information in which we discussed who has had broken bones, visited a doctor and had to take medicine. As a class we then shared our findings and conclusions.
Some of us used our new learning to read sentences of information and stick the correct images alongside.
Red table enjoyed creating a fact sheet about the safety of medicines and drugs. The fact sheets included information about where medicines should be kept, who should aminister them and the do's and don'ts.
In our English lessons we have just had our Entry point to Traditional Tales. It was lovely to see so many children make the effort to come to school dressed as a Traditional tale character. We enjoyed parading in our costumes and writing descriptions. Every day we are reading Traditional tales and building a good bank of stories. We are looking forward to writing our own traditional Tale with a twist.
This unit of Maths work is based on Number. We have been counting in 2's, 3's,5's and 10's. We are also looking at the value of numbers and odd and even numbers. Children in 2H are learning to write, read and record numbers as numerals and as words.
