ELM CLASS Year 1 and 2

The government has a responsibility to make sure your rights are protected. They must help your family to protect your rights and create an environment where you can grow and reach your potential.

MEXICO

Foods from around the World

 

The children in Elm class learnt about how there is a great deal of poverty in Mexico and that there are a great many children living in extreme poverty.  These children do not have the basic needs to live happy and healthy lives.  Their Rights are being ignored.  We also learnt about different foods from Mexico.  We made salsa and guacamole and had chilli beans in soft taco cups.  There was no food wastage at the end of that day!

More than 20 million Mexican children and adolescents live in poverty (more than 4 million in extreme poverty)

 

According to a study by the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef) in cooperation with the Mexican government and released last month during a media conference in Mexico City, more than 20 million Mexican children and adolescents – nearly 53 percent of the under-18 population – live in poverty, and more than 4 million of them in extreme poverty.

You have the right to the best health care possible, safe water to drink, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment, and information to help you stay well.

 

BIG DAY SCIENCE - HEALTHY EATING

 

The class looked at different foods and discussed what makes some food healthy and others not so healthy.  We then created our own healthy wrap for lunch.  It was yummy!

BIG DAY SCIENCE - KEEPING CLEAN

 

Germs! Germs! Germs!

We know that germs are harmful, but how are they spread?  We covered our hands in oil and then sprinkled different coloured glitters over them.  It was amazing how easily the different coloured glitter was transferred to different surfaces and each other.  We then investigated what method was best to wash our hands.  What do you think?  Warm water, warm water with a bar of soap or warm water with hand gel?
