Health and Citizenship Week

We have been learning about health issues and citizenship this week. We learnt about earning money and how well known people have earnt money in the past. We thought about what we could do to earn money and if we would spend it or save it. We found out about Ben Fogle and what he spends his money on and what he has invested his money on. We talked about what we would like to invest our money on and what we think would be worth saving for.

We also learnt about healthy lifestyles. We have found out about the main food groups and portion sizes to keep a healthy and balanced diet. We have also learnt about safety and what are the important things to thing about when being near water, being out in the sunshine and playing inside and outside our homes.

We enjoyed listening to various visitors who helped us learn about health and safety. We found out about what to do if we have had an accident or are poorly and where to seek help from. We found out about the RNLI and learnt from our visitor from the RNLI what are the basic rules when having fun by the water or on the beach. Here are some of the examples of the follow-up activities we completed…..
