Health and Hygiene

Health & Hygiene










What a clean, healthy week we had last week. We learnt all about the different ways to stay healthy and hygienic! Covering your mouth when you sneeze and cough (but not with your hand, with the inside of your elbow instead), how to wash our hands properly after playing outside and going to the toilet, how to properly your body properly in the bath and shower and the most fun activity this week… brushing our teeth! Our Bugs loved the practical, hands on lessons we had this week and are definitely a healthy bunch of kids!

We sang lots of health and hygiene songs and performed all the actions to them, and we also carried out all of the ways to stay clean. We washed our hands with soap and water every day before snack and lunch, we practiced brushing our hair in the mornings and of course on Thursday, we brushed our teeth after snack! This was a HUGE hit and the Bugs absolutely loved it! We are very proud to say that most of our Bugs can brush their teeth by themselves, some even taking it to the next level and brushing their tongues as well!

For art this week, we made a few things:

  1. We used paint blowing technique to create awesome colourful germs. We dripped blobs of paint onto our page, then used our own little straws to blow the paint all over (with a little help from Teacher Gemma).
  2. We used playdough, pipe cleaners and googly eyes to create a Reggio Emilia germ. The Bugs had so much fun squishing, poking and decorating these germs!

We hope you all have a lovely week!

Father’s Day and Sport

We spent lots of time this week asking our Bugs questions about their Dads; What their names are, if they know how old their Dads are, what work Dad does, whether he plays any sports… And we while didn’t always get answers to all of these questions, one thing we can say for certain, is that very clear that our Bugs just LOVE their Dads!

The Farm: Farm Animals

The Farm: Farm Animals

We learned all about the different noises these animals make, and the different names that the boy and girl animals have, such as hen and rooster or sheep and ram. We learned the names of the baby animals, like chick, lamb and piglet! It was such fun pretending to be these animals at ring time! Our children have very vivid imaginations and have a lot of existing knowledge about farm animals.
