 In Religion we will be talking about how special we are and that God knows and loves all of us.

God Says: 

You are precious to me. 

I love you.

I know you.

I know your name.

I call you by your name.

You are my child.

Healthy Teeth!

At Christ the King, we are promoting the importance of good oral hygiene. Please share this video with your child and talk about the importance of brushing their teeth in the morning and at night. Also, talk to your child about things that are good and things that are bad for their teeth. With this in mind, please make sure your child only brings water to school and healthy snacks in their packed lunch. Thank you

 

The Boy Who Hated Toothbrushes!

Please have a look at the story book below!

Billy hates toothbrushes until he finds a tooth sparkler...

 

Here is a presentation of 'Top Toothbrushing Tips'

We are currently using the resource "Staying safe with Sam" in Reception to promote safety around laundry and cleaning products. Each week we are reading a different story focusing on a scenario where children may encounter laundry and cleaning products such as looking under the sink or in a shopping bag. We have been learning a chant to help the children remember what to do:

We will be sending home a pack of resources for parents to use which contains a mini - story book, an activity sheet, a copy of the poster, a fact sheet and an 'I stayed safe with Sam' sticker.
