We started the session by reminding ourselves of some of the common garden birds. We regularly see Blue Tits, Great Tits, Sparrows and Blackbirds by Bluebells Class. We have a resident Buzzard that hangs out in the oak tree in the field next to class. We loved listening to the Long Tailed Tit's chatterbox song. It reminded us of Beegu - the alien we have been reading about.
Next we made some Cheerio Treats to feed the garden birds at home. We were engrossed in threading cheerios onto pipe cleaners - great for our fine motor skills.
We had a HOT CHOCOLATE TREAT ourselves, before tackling the obstacle courses that we made last week.
We had a great afternoon! Brilliant Bluebells!
We talked about feeling safe in school. In Bluebells we feel safe.
We decided to talk about reasons why someone might not feel safe.
The children said:
- We might not feel safe if our Mum's and Dad's aren't with us.
- We might not feel safe if we hear unkind words or someone hurts our feelings.
- We might not feel safe if someone grabs or pushes us.
We thought about what we should do if we or someone else wasn't feeling safe:
- Find a friend or a member of staff - they will keep you safe.
To make sure our friends feel safe, we said we:
- Should think before we do something.
- Follow our class rules.
- Should use kind hands and kind feet.
- Should only say something if it is nice.
We drew pictures and wrote our advise for others.
We talked about which pets we had at home. Some of us had pets and some didn't so we talked about which pets we would like when we were grown ups. We drew a picture of the pet we wanted and talked about all the different things pets needed.
We talked about why we needed to have rules. We looked at our class rules and discussed why we had each rule - to keep us safe.
We talked about rules in other places - in a shop, at a playground. Some of the rules were the same but some were different and we decided rules change depending on the situation.
