Although these last two weeks have been short ones, Room 1 routines are up and running.
Week 2 saw the start of our swimming for this year, much to the delight of all the children.
After missing swimming in term 4 last year, the children were keen to be back in the pool to cool off on these hot summer days.
We kicked off our topic this term (Healthy Bodies) by making a healthy salad. We had a taste of some of the produce we put in the salad.
Some children loved it...
Others were not so sure.....
However, everyone enjoyed helping chop, grate, rip and toss the ingredients together.
Grating carrot and beetroot. Shelling peas. Chopping tomatoes and cucumber.
Ripping the spinach. Chopping the beans.
Tossing the salad.
The children showed amazing knife skills and a good knowledge on how to prepare the different salad ingredients.
When the salad was finished, we took it outside to have a salad picnic under the tree. YUM!
