In year 5 this week we had fun with corn flour and water.
We were trying to decide if it was solid or liquid
‘Happy Healthy Kids’ came into Year 5 today to speak to us about some of the dangers involved in smoking.
We looked at a list of dangerous chemicals and had to decide as a group which may be in each cigarette. Some of The chemicals were rocket fuel, cyanide and even rat poison!!
We then look at the effect that cigarettes can have on our bodies…
…and saw a demonstration of how tar can cover your lungs!
We then worked out the cost of smoking could have on your wallet in pounds and pence. Did you know smoking a packet of cigarettes every day for a year could cost around £3102.50?!
At the end of the lesson the children came up with lots a facts and reasons not to smoke!
