Being Healthy Week

Friday 14 July 2023

What a fun-filled, healthy week we have had! Despite the rain, the children enjoyed taking part in their first sports day.

On Tuesday, we took part in a yoga session.

Throughout the week, we have focused on a personal best challenge. This involved timing ourselves while running laps and counting how many star jumps we could do in 1 minute to see if we could improve over time.


This week, we read The fish Who Could Wish.

The children thought about their own wishes for year one.

Poetry Picnic

Each week we will be learning a new poem. We will recite this poem each day. By saying the poem out loud, we can focus on the sounds and rhythm of each word or line. We talk to the children about how this can help us become better readers.

This week’s poem is Dance.


A huge thank you for sending videos of your child reciting the poem at home.

Poetry Picnic Superstars!


We have continued exploring floating and sinking by making our own boats and testing how many coins they could hold before they sank.
