Guide Dog Visit
On Thursday (17/10) in Panthers we had a fantastic visit from Jackie & Bruce! Bruce is Jackie's Guide Dog from the Guide Dogs Trust UK.
The children loved having Bruce in class, he was so wonderful with them.
They asked Jackie lots of fantastic questions about how having a guide dog has changed her life. We learnt about how Bruce guides Jackie safely in busy areas, on buses and trains. Jackie showed us the food Bruce eats and some of us even gave him some treats.
Panthers now know it's really important not to distract a guide dog when they have their uniform on because they are busy working.
As part of our learning in Topic on 'People who help us' Panthers looked at the role of a Dentist.
We learnt all about Dentists and the different jobs they do and then created our own funny face smiles.
We had to count how many teeth we have in our mouth (so learnt some Science too!) and use precise cutting skills to create our fabulous pieces of art.
Visit to the Co-Op for baking ingredients
This week some of Panthers helped Amy on a trip to the co-op.
In Literacy this week, we created a recipe and method for making Banana & Oat Cookies.
We then used our Numeracy skills to estimate the amount of money the ingredients would cost and practiced expanding money at the co-op.
On our return we followed our methods to make our cookies, there were 6 steps to complete. They tasted great!
Fire Station Visit
We had an amazing morning learning all about Fire Engines and Firefighters with our visit from the team up at Rastrick Fire Station. Panthers class asked some fantastic questions about the equipment they use and loved exploring the Fire Engine.
PE - Health & Fitness
It's the start of the new year and in PE we are focusing on 'Health & Fitness' to go with our topic 'People who help us'. Take a look at the Panthers class in action...
People Who Help Us - Artwork
This week Panthers have learnt lots about the Fire Service and how they help people.
We read a story about Charlie, a Firefighter and created some fantastic artwork using handprints.
Panthers loved learning about 'hazards' in the home (electric cables, candles, gas hobs etc) and why they can be dangerous.
Take a look at our amazing artwork...
