Juniper - Year 1

Healthy lifestyles activities

Year 1 children took part in Healthy Lifestyles activities for 6 weeks with Mr Kennard from SASP.


The children talked about their emotions and played emotions bingo.


We did 5 different activities linked to our senses - smelling shampoo (smell); tasting squash (taste); guessing objects in feely bags(touch); Chinese whisper games  (listening) and a body puzzle (sight).


We kept active diaries for a week, noting down how often we moved and all the different activities we took part in throughout the week to keep our bodies healthy and active.


The children were surprised to learn how much sugar is in their favourite drinks, realising that water is the best drink to keep our teeth and bodies healthy. 


The egg experiment was very exciting. We were learning how to brush and care for our teeth. We put 3 eggs in different liquids for a week - water, vinegar and cola. The egg in the water stayed hard and strong, the other eggs were soft and changed colour; helping us to learn how important water is for our bodies. 


Washing hands is excellent to keep germs away and we all had a go at following the instructions and washing our hands properly  - this will help us to stay clean and healthy.

All About Letters! We have been learning how to write letters this week. Today, we had a visitor from the Post Office. She kindly brought us some pre-paid envelopes which we used to write a letter to ourselves to see if we get it back tomorrow. We walked to the post box before the last collection to post our letter and we can't wait to see if it arrives back tomorrow!
