This week has been Safety week, we have talked about things that are too hot, washing our hands properly and crossing the road safely.
On Wednesday it was Rainbow day, we did lots of rainbow activities including rainbow cakes, face painting, making rainbow streamers,planting rainbow coloured flowers all in aid of the Butterwick Hospice in Bishop Auckland. We had a great day and managed to raise £93.40, a very big thank you to all who donated!
We also had a visitor on Wednesday to help us to wash our hands properly, she brought with her a special machine that shows us the germs on our hands. First we looked at our hands in the machine and then we went to wash our hands very carefully using soap and water, we then put our hands back in the machine to see if we did a good job of washing them. The children were very good!
Thursday we focused on crossing the road safely, we looked at one of our Non-fiction books about crossing the road, it told us all the rules of crossing the road: always hold an adults hand, stop, look and listen before crossing and to look for the green man if using a Pelican crossing. We then went out for a walk to practise all of the skills we had learned about. On the way we called in at the Butterwick Hospice to give them the money we had raised. We met a lovely lady called Dionne who was very grateful for our Donation, she took some of the children to meet a few of the patients and then came outside to see all of the children.
Nursery children also went out to the road outside school and practise crossing the road. Nursery then went on to talk about not talking to strangers, they read Little Red Riding hood and decided that Little Red Riding Hood should not have talked to the Big Bad Wolf as he was stranger to her.
Nursery Children have also been learning about number 3, they heard the story of the naughtiest number in the town, Thieving Three from Ten Town and made some delicious Jam tarts, thankfully Thieving Three was not at St Wilfrid’s and did not steal our tarts, instead we ate them and they were delicious.
