Health and Hygiene

Health & Hygiene










This week our theme was all about Health and Hygiene.  

We spoke about eating healthy food and what it means to be healthy. We took a look at a few healthy veggies and fruit that we found in the kitchen. We had fun washing our hands with soap. 

For art this week we created our own mouth and added some teeth. We also did an activity showing the difference between clean teeth and dirty teeth, they had to show us which teeth were dirty and which were clean. We did some free painting which was so much fun. The pictures are all so different and beautiful – just how we love our art to be! Some children love to mix colours, others keep the colours very separate. Some prefer only 2 or 3 colours while others wanted all of them! Amazing to see their creative processes.  

We learnt about the concept of an apology, and I am happy to see that all of our children say sorry with no problem if they need to. This is wonderful and makes classroom life a lot more pleasant and happy!  

We also did some messy play during the week and the Pups enjoyed it so much!  

I have loved spending time with your little busy bodies.  Enjoy looking at all the photos from the week! 



Have a wonderful weekend!
