What a brilliant first week we’ve had in Year 1! The children have adapted to the new routines brilliantly and have behaved impeccably.
In Science we have been learning to label the parts of our body then explored our senses. We made biscuits with scented icing, explored loud and quiet sounds with instruments, made a sensory collage with different materials, tasted different foods and tried to complete a series of tasks whilst blindfolded.
We used lots of vocabulary too such as bitter, sour, salty, soft, rough and smooth. Super work everybody!
In the beautiful sunshine, Year 1 had a fantastic day at Reaseheath Farm. We discovered how Cave Fish have evolved to be blind and watched the wild cats being fed. Thank you to our fantastic adults who came with us.
We have worked together to observe how easily the water drains away from each leaf or how it stays on the leaf for a longer period of time.
Using pipettes to mimic rainfall, we have investigated the shape and surface of the leaf to see if it would survive in a tropical environment – the rainforest.
