Living and Learning: physical activity

Posted on Monday 19 July 2021 by Mr Wilks

During health week, we talked about the benefits of physical activity on our health. We learned that there is a link between physical health and academic success.

We then talked about how we can make sure we get 60 minutes of physical activity everyday. We split it into 30minutes at home and 30 minutes at school. We had lots of different ideas and made a poster showing how we can achieve the 60 goal.

At home, talk to your child about physical activity and help them to get their 30minutes each day!

DT: design process

Posted on Friday 25 June 2021 by Mr Wilks

In our DT lessons this week, we’ve been evaluating existing products to gain some inspiration and ideas for our own designs.

We’ve also begun to explore our ideas using TechCard and next we’ll be drawing our final designs.

The design criteria for our go kart prototypes:

– move by rolling on wheels
– have a steering system
– a platform to sit on and not fall out of
– a braking system (extra, aspirational challenge)


Living and Learning: body image

Posted on Friday 25 June 2021 by Mr Wilks

In our lesson this week, we talked about beauty and the perception of it.

We discussed how the media push an idea of what beautiful is and that images you see in the media aren’t always what they seem. We looked at some images that had been edited before they were published and spotted the differences from the original photos. The differences were quite scary!

Writing: editing, improving and presenting

Posted on Friday 28 May 2021 by Mr Wilks

We’ve been busy writing a story inspired by Michael Rosen’s poem, Chocolate Cake.

The children have worked really hard and produced some of their best writing this year.

In today’s lesson, they edited their writing for mistakes and improved it. They then chose whether to present it by writing it up on paper with illustrations or typing it using a word processing app on an iPad.

L&L: drugs

Posted on Friday 28 May 2021 by Mr Wilks

In our living and Learning lessons we’ve been learning about medicine and drugs.

We learned that it can be very dangerous if you take medicine that isn’t for you. We also learned that it’s really important that you take the correct amount (dose) of your medicine. Because, if you don’t, it may make you ill. We also talked about how and where to store medicines safely so that they’re out of reach of small children.

We learned about all the information that you can find on a medicine label:

  • name and type of medicine
  • possible side effects
  • where and how to store it
  • who the medicine is for
  • how much to take
  • safety warnings
  • ingredients
  • expiry date

Finally, we looked at some medicine safety scenarios and considered what the person should do in that scenario and how they should stay safe.

Things to do at home: 

When you have some medicine for your child, look at the label and talk about the information on there.

  • Can they find their name?
  • Can they find the dosage details?
  • Where do you keep medicines in your home?
