Today was our second visit to the life education van. We got to look after puppets and talk to them about how to look after ourselves. Things we remembered and taught our puppets were: washing our hands, cleaning our teeth, eating food and breathing air. Look at the cool gift bags we got.

Today we went on our trip to Kelly Tarlton's. The penguins had new nests where they will soon have babies. We went into the education room and got to ask questions about fish. This was very helpful and we learnt a lot about fish. After the education room we went to look around and finally we got to see the stingrays being fed.

Today we went into the life education trust van. We learnt a song to sing when we clean our teeth: 'Brush, Brush, Brush your teeth, Brush them twice a day, Front and Back, and in between to keep the germs away.' (In the tune of Row, Row, Row your boat). We also meet Tam and learnt about our heart. Jess (Life Education Van Educator) gave us all a booklet to work on in class. We can't wait to go back on thursday and sing some more songs with Harold.

Today we walked to the new Lynn library. Rachel from the library talked to us about books and then took us on the tour to see all other places we can go. We were very quiet and enjoyed learning about fish. Rachel also gave us a library work booklet to help us learn about fish. What a cool treat.

Our big book this week was 'I go, go, go'... I go up. I go down. I go into town. I go fast. I go slow. I go, go, go ... Away. We made cars and then drew chalk race tracks on the concrete. The teachers numbered our race tracks 1-20. Then we had to make car noises and find the number the teacher called out. As a class we are learning to recognise numbers 1-20.
