World Braille Day
On Wednesday 4th January 2017 we celebrated World Braille Day. In 4E we watched a video about Louis Braille a young boy who created Braille.
We then learnt the alphabet in braille and used it to write our names using small pieces of circular card for the dots. We played a game where we had to work out which numbered name belonged to who! It was an extraordinary experience since we got experience how blind people read!
This is what we thought of Healthy Eating Week 2017:
Healthy Eating week has given all of us many opportunities to see what Healthy Eating is all about. At the beginning of this week we had the chance to make healthy smoothies by riding a bike which powered a blender. The smoothie we made included strawberries, bananas, yogurt and milk. We also got into groups of three so one of us could ride the exercise bike whilst someone else was pumping the smoothie machine that was connected to the bike. The third person was preparing the fruit for the next group to speed up the process. The method took around 5-10 minutes for each group.
The next day, one of our healthy eating activities was making a leaflet that gave information about healthy eating. We all got into groups of four and shared an iPad between each other for research. We all found very interesting information which helped us produce amazing leaflets.
For the whole week all of the school spent most of our lunches and breaks doing laps on the field to try and beat the marathon distance of 42.2 kilometres to become Marathon Kids champions.
On Wednesday we made a healthy snack called a ‘Pitta Pocket’’ which included: tomatoes, cucumber, spinach, chicken and pitta bread. It was delicious!
Healthy Eating week was an amazing experience with lots of fun activities and very interesting information. It has reminded us how important healthy lifestyles are.
