A wonderful forest school donation from Zephie, Cooper and her parents. We are very grateful for the new bug hunting and den building equipment. We cant wait to make use of them!
Thank you SO much for your kindness
Last week we had a visit from a health practitioner who helped us understand the importance of keeping our teeth and mouths clean and healthy. We learnt to brush twice a day for two minutes. We also learnt which foods are good for our teeth and which ones have more sugar in to cause decay.
We have bought the children in Bluebells a new bamboo toothbrush which will be coming home with your child along with a new teeth brushing chart. Fill this in and bring it back to show us!
Well Done Brilliant Bluebells
This afternoon we were learning how to program a Beebot around a grid. The children were challenged to get the Beebot to a different under water animal. There was lots of discussion about what moves were needed, everyone was helping each other! Then it got even tricker...there were obstacles put in the way, so the Beetbot had to avoid certain squares. Bluebells were a super team, solving the problems together.
This afternoon we continued practicing our programming skills, we recapped our knowledge of giving instructions and talked about how we can get the Beebot to move forwards, backwards and turn.
In pairs the children then had a go at programming the Beebot on the iPads. Some great teamwork!
Your child may have already told you we have welcomed Miss Warmisham (Miss W) to Bluebells class this week.
Miss W is at Chester University studying Teacher Training. She will be an extra teacher in Bluebells until July supported closely by Miss Butler and Mrs Lunt.
We are really pleased to be hosting Miss W. Bluebells Children have been brilliant as usual in welcoming her.
We watched the following clip to pick up tips of what to do if approached by a stranger. Look what they are wearing, how they have their hair and what car they are driving. Try to remember carefully what is said.
Bluebells children were very clear on what to do when out to keep safe such as staying close to our grown ups or a friend. If we feel uncomfortable or get lost we must find someone we could trust, like someone who works at the shop or a police officer.
