Month: May 2018
P2B have had a fantastic Health Week! We have loved learning about healthy food and Mrs Smith’s mum came in to chat to us about the importance of good food! We got to cook our own nutritious lentil soup and delicious cheese scones. Some of us were brave and tried some new fruit and veg and it was great fun making our own fruit craft creations 🙂
Our week in P3a has been jam-packed with healthy activities and we loved it!
We also learnt to play some Spanish playground games:”A pares y nones” and “1 2 3 momma es”
We also got the chance to learn about dental hygiene with some dental nurses. They taught us how much sugar we are supposed to eat each day and how to brush our teeth properly. They also showed us how much sugar is in some popular food and drinks.
On Wednesday, we got the chance to make some Mexican food with Ms Karam and some of our lovely parent helpers. We made guacamole and salsa to go in our tasty tacos. Lots of us tried new food and enjoyed it!
Emily, a ranger from Newhailes, came to visit us in the afternoon so we could do some outdoor learning. We went into the outdoor classroom to discuss insects and minibeasts before going off to hunt them ourselves. We found loads of interesting things!
Today three classes did cooking with Miss Karam.
P3a made tacos, guacamole and salsa
P2b made vegetable and lentil soup and cheese scones
P5b made macaroni cheese four ways. They ‘taste tested’ the results to see which they might try again in the future. Veggie sausage was popular.
Thank you to all the volunteers that made our cooking possible.
