Year 5 was visited by Maria, the nurse, today and learnt about keeping healthy in different ways. We learnt about the importance of sleep, exercise and a healthy diet. We also learnt about some things that can effect our health, such as head lice, asthma, eczema, colds and athletes foot. Maria taught us some ways to take care of ourselves when these things happen. Year 5 asked lots of thoughtful questions and learnt a lot today.
Maria our school nurse came into class this week to talk to us more about keeping our bodies healthy from our heads to our toes. Year 3 worked collaboratively to identify how we can keep our bodies healthy.
Maria told us that headaches can be caused by not drinking enough water in class so we must make sure we drink enough water to stay hydrated. Another possible reason for a headache is that we may need to visit the optician, especially if we are finding it difficult to see the board or our reading books.
Head Lice can spread very quickly in a classroom. Head Lice often called nits. Nits are the empty egg sacs that often look like dandruff in our hair. Egg sacs can look like brown dots on each strand of hair. Maria advised that each week we should check our hair. Head Lice are small wingless insects and are spread by close contact between our heads. Sign of HeadLice are if an itchy scalp which stop us learning or keep us awake, white flakes in hair or brothers or sisters with . Get an adult check by combing through hair with a comb and conditioner.
Coughs and colds spread germs so it is vital to catch the cough or sneeze in a tissue , throw it away and wash our hands properly.
Well done to Year 6 for another busy half term. This half term in Jigsaw we have looked at having and maintaining a positive self image. We began by setting goals and looking at how we could in a positive way, achieve these.
We finished off this week by making positive reward certificates for our peers.We rewarded their attitude in positive ways, Some of the class found it hard to accept positive praise from their peers. We worked on that and as a class we decided that positive praise and a positive image was a good feeling
On Tuesday morning, the nurse came into visit and taught us how easily germs can spread. We used a special hand gel that showed all the dirty on our hands. When the nurse shone a UV light over our hands we could see all the invisible germs. Then she taught us how to wash our hands properly.
This term in Jigsaw Year 6 are looking at setting dreams and goals. We ,as a class,, discussed what led to success and how we could set realistic goals in order to succeed. In our circle we discussed individual successes and moments we felt proud of achieving success.
We shared the video ‘Wonder Goal’ by Michael Foreman. This is a story of a boy who wanted to become a world class footballer. We discussed what he might need to do to achieve this.
The School Council and Year 6 Pupils have created a ‘child speak’ Anti-Bullying Policy. The policy is currently being checked and agreed by the Academy Governors, but will soon be available to all children.
