  • develop awareness, self-confidence and self-esteem and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues

In PSHE this week, the children have been discussing all the things our families do to help us and thinking of things we can do to help them. They came up with some wonderful ideas, such as helping with cleaning, giving our grown ups a cuddle, bringing them a drink when they are poorly and even helping to look after family pets. The children learnt a new word ‘appreciate’ they all shared something that they appreciate about someone in their family.

We have been learning about measures - tall, taller, short, shorter, big, small, long, longer.

We have been exploring our super senses. This week we made jam sandwiches, we used our sense of touch to make the sandwich and used our sense of taste to taste them.

The children used some fantastic adjectives to describe them:

*Sticky*               *Sweet*                    *Fruity*                 * Sour* 


We went on an Autumn walk to compare things in nature.

In class 1 we have been learning all about our senses. Today we were using our super sense of smell to find out what was inside the mystery cups. The cups were covered up so we couldn't use our sense of sight, touch, or taste. The children worked out that if we shook the cups we were also able to use our sense of hearing to give us a clue. The children used some fantastic adjectives to describe what they could smell.

Lunch time at St Barts!
