We had lots of fun ‘guessing the baby’ when looking at the children’s baby photographs and looked at how much we have grown and changed over time. There was also a lot of laughter as the children guessed their teachers’ baby photographs, too!

We have also looked at how we need to look after our bodies, helping them to grow strong by eating a healthy diet and, just like plants, we too need fresh air, sunlight and water to help us develop.  Additionally, we have looked at teeth, learning how to keep them strong and healthy – for example, drinking milk to keep both teeth and bones strong and making sure to brush them twice a day, especially after a sweet treat. We looked carefully at how we need to brush our teeth, starting with a pea sized amount of toothpaste on our toothbrush before the cleaning begins.

After listening to a lovely story about some children who wanted to do lots of different jobs when they are adults, we had here interesting discussions about what the children in Kindergarten thought they might like to be when they are all grown up. There are many aspiring scientists, astronauts, builders and members of the emergency services in our class. We also talked about our dreams and goals and that we can be anything that we want to, if we continue to work hard and remember to be a ‘Stickosarus’ when things get tricky – remembering that practice makes progress!

On another note, we have also had plenty of discussion around the fact that ‘what is in our pants is private’ – Pantosaurus from the NSPCC told us about the 5 PANTS rules to keep ourselves safe. We enjoyed listening to this catchy song to help us remember – here’s the link for you to revisit the concept should you wish.
