Change for life day

 

Oak class have been lucky enough to enjoy a fabulous Change for life day today! We spent the morning talking about healthy eating and diet, discussing the different food types and why they are all important for our bodies. We then made some yummy smoothies ensuring we mixed fruit and vegetables together! The favourite one was banana, carrots, pineapple, milk and lots of ice! 

All of Oak class were successful in walking/running a mile this morning, everyone enjoyed it and said they would like to do it every week! During PE we have been been testing different breath rates and how exercise gets our heart beating faster.  It has been a fantastic day and the children have been stars all day! 

Dry Ice Magic

 

Yesterday we had fun creating magic with the mysterious dry ice! Miss Hooper froze a daffodil and crushed it in a matter of seconds. We loved it!

Dentist 

 

Today we were visited by Nina the dentist she taught us about how to look after our teeth, what foods we should and shouldn't eat and how to brush our teeth. 

Experiment 

 

We learnt about a chemical reaction with popping candy and coke today. We learnt that when the popping candy and coke mix together they cause a reaction. Gas is released and it blows up the balloon!
