Healthy Eating, Etiquette & Manners









Ff – Food

Moral conscious theme: Manners and not interrupting – We explained to the Squad what manners are, why they are important as well as that interrupting is unfair on others.

Writing and Phonics: This week the Squad worked hard on remembering and reading their new sight word for the week “here”. We also played a fun game where the Squad had to go hunt for their sight words around the school. We are very impressed by how the Squad have remembered their sight words, please keep practicing sight words at home too. We also practiced letter formations “m”,” n”, and “o” in our workbooks, followed by writing their name using the “cat method”. –  Great work Squad!

Mathematics: This week the Squad did a dot to dot worksheet where they had to trace the dots to the correct numbers, they were impressed with the end result which turned into a fish. They then coloured the fish in.

Cooking: For our cooking class this week, the Squad sat around the table to eat their lunch and learnt etiquette and manners around the table such as chew with your mouth closed, do not speak while you have food in your mouth, how to hold utensils properly, ask to be excused from the table and do not play with your food or waste your food.

Creative Art: The Squad enjoyed making a ginormous food pyramid, they cut out different food from magazines and newspapers. They the stuck the different foods in the correct food group, such as carbohydrates, fats and oils, fruits and vegetables, proteins and Dairy products.

 Have a wonderful weekend!
