Chartwells Healthy Eating Workshop
Lion Class had the opportunity to participate in a Healthy Eating workshop hosted by Chartwells. They focused on the importance of healthy eating, the eat well guide and the various food groups. The hands -on activity was based on the Hungry Caterpillar Book. After reading the story, pupils took part in a food art activity – creating their own hungry caterpillar or beautiful butterfly using sliced fruit and vegetables. Children were encouraged to then enjoy their creation - a healthy snack!
Week 2 - WB 13.6.2022
Author Visit at Chatham Library
This week the children visited the author Ian McDonald at Chatham Library. This was very exciting because it isn’t often that children get to meet the person who wrote the book and ask questions. Ian McDonald read one of his books called ‘Mrs Wrelton’s Dinosaur.’
Other books he has written include ‘Skateboard Gran,’ ‘Eyeball Soup,’ and ‘The Mummy’s Finger.’
This is what some of our class had to say about our visit:
“I was excited to visit the library because I had never been to a library before or even met a real author.” (Gabija)
“It was really fun to meet an author and have my book signed by him.” (Teddy)
“I liked listening to Ian McDonald's story called 'Mrs Wrelton's Dinosaur', we got to draw pictures from the story.” (Leoreda)
Week 1 - WB 6.6.2022
Our theme for this week was 'reimagine', so we decided to reimagine our classroom as different places linked to what we have learnt about this year. We imagined what we would see if our classroom was a rainforest, desert, space or even under the ocean. We collected all of our ideas and wrote a poem which we learnt and performed in groups. We decided to add some percussion music to the verses. We also made a collage to represent some of the 'reimaginings' of our classroom! We hope you enjoy looking at all of our learning from this week.
