They are 'penniless', they have nothing of their own.
Borrowers are 'resourceful', they recycle rubbish.
The little people are 'optimistic creatures'.
They are as sneaky as mice and as hard working as ants.
Our Science focus for this half term is 'How did animals and humans evolve over time?'. So far we have looked at the work of Charles Darwin and how animals on the Galapogas Islands have adapted to their surroundings. Today we discussed characteristics that we have inherited or acquired from our parents and the difference between the two. It was a lively discussion which covered everything from inherited eye colour, height and even crooked toes!
Our PSHE (Personal,Social, Health and Emotional) focus for this week is all about making ourselves happy. We have thought about what makes us happy and made a list of our 'happy things'. The idea is that we will use this list and refer back to it if ever we need a happiness reminder.
In keeping with our PSHE focus, we have a designated display board in class to encourage mental well being. The board is themed on the children's film 'Inside Out'. We're trying to promote the idea of looking after our mental health and the steps we can take to give ourselves a boost or a 'charge'. We have a self care poster for the children to look at and some self love activities for them to use. Anybody for a yoga pose? How about a positive mantra?
