Year 1 Voyagers and Discoverers have been very lucky this week to spend the afternoon with Mrs Hood, the school nurse, to learn about how to keep our bodies healthy!
Firstly, they learnt the importance of hand-washing and how to do it thoroughly for spotlessly clean hands after going to the toilet, before eating, after touching pets and if they sneeze or blow their noses. They don’t want to spread any germs! Each child was given paint spots on their hands and sent to practise hand washing themselves, ensuring all the spots had disappeared before they returned to the classroom!
Year 1 also got the opportunity to meet ‘The Veggie Gang’ and enjoyed tasting a variety of healthy fruits including strawberries, sultanas, pineapple, grapes and the ‘super fruit’ blue berries. The children know we need 5 portions of fruit & veg to eat-healthily and that a ‘portion’ means a handful.
We finished the session by getting our bodies moving and hearts beating completing our daily mile.
A very enjoyable afternoon…take a look!
