Helen (Alex’s mum) came into the Reception Class to talk about her work as a radiographer. She showed the children pictures of the x-ray machines she uses in hospitals. The children viewed some x-rays on a light box and matched them to different parts of the body. Then they looked at x-rays of familiar objects such as a kettle, a toy digger and a hair drier. Helen showed us a giant picture of ‘Mr Spooky the Skeleton’ and the children labelled lots of different bones on his body. Since Helen’s visit, the children have been really keen to drink all their milk and have lots of exercise to keep their bones strong. Thank you, Helen, for teaching us so much about our bones.

EYFS had an exciting day today. The day started with the children coming in dressed up in their Halloween costume. They were keen to show their friends how scary they looked! They had a dance and a few games followed by a tasty party treat. We had a few tired skeletons, witches, ghosts and other spooky characters at the end of the day.
