‘Caring for Ourselves’ in Garden Room

This week the class topic in Garden Room has been ‘Caring for Ourselves’. The children have been learning how to look after themselves by discussing what our bodies need to stay healthy. They have been looking at healthy food, exercising with Spartacus from ‘Lazy Town’ and had dentist role play area.

The children especially enjoyed the hand washing science experiment which involved using glitter to represent how easily germs can spread. This also encouraged hand washing effectively as it was hard work getting getting their hands clean from those sparkly germs! Pupils have a local dentist coming to visit later in the week which they are really excited about.
