Today the children learned what to do if their clothes catch fire. We practiced how to 'Stop -Drop- Roll', and talked about how it is very important to stay calm and never run if your clothing is alight . They have been taking our fire safety lessons very seriously and there were no complaints when we practiced our fire safety drills outside, in the scorching Summer heat. If you click on our Stop -Drop - Roll picture today, it will take you to a PDF sheet that you can colour in.
We also talked about water today. We watched a Video on Peep and the Big Wide World , about a duck called Quack, who wanted to prove that his pond was bigger and better than the pond next door. The video was a great combination of entertainment and mathematics. The children learned all of the different ways the size of a pond could be measured. It had a happy ending as all good stories do! I would encourage everyone to check out the site over the weekend as the video topic changes every day and the program is excellent.
All of the children had an art lesson today. One group spent time in the art room with Sheryl and Marg and the other worked with Lorraine and I in the classroom. As well as completing their art works,Sheryl's group had a fantastic time spraying each other with water bottles, which was a great activity for a 40 degree plus day!
