What a fun day we have had today! The children have all been superstars and settled into class well. The children had many compliments on how well they have settled at Etwall Primary School.
Well Done Woodpeckers
Friday 21st September
Today we had our first PE session and all the children got changed with little help required. Well done. Then we went into the hall and began our REAL PE  session and were moving around the hall on our pretend bikes. We used different movements for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th gear. Afterwards the children changed back into their uniform although there was some confusion on what belonged to who.

Being Healthy Day
Today the children experienced lots of activities on how to be healthy. We exercised outside, decided what goes into a healthy lunch box, learned how to wash our hands and sorted food. Also we talked about how we brush our teeth. The children took home a toothbrush and toothpaste so they can have a go.
Tomorrow they will be tasting different fruits.
