In Spring 1 Maple class worked for Olive Stein creating work for a new website she was creating. We became Digi pod 2. In our Digi pod we wrote stories for Olive’s site which were all about Roald Dahl’s characters The Twits. The children had a great time thinking about pranks which the horrible pair could play on each other. The stories were super and some are on the website as Olive loved them so much.
We also looked at a healthy body, diet and mind. The children made an exercise video which focused on short bursts of exercise over 15 minutes. They looked at all the factors which make up a healthy body such as exercise, diet, water, good mental health, weight, no smoking or drinking and plenty of sleep. They designed and made smoothies which would be a healthy alternative sweets. We discussed having vegetables in smoothies as well as fruit and they class came up with some good suggestions.
We also looked at pets and how to keep them healthy. We wrote health plans for rabbits and dogs. Some of these are also published on the website. The class worked well for Olive and she was really pleased with the work they produced. They all said they would love to work for Olive again in Year 3.
