Science - Sense Detectives

As part of the science topic 'animals including humans' Year 1 have been learning about different senses. On Friday  the children trained to become 'sense detectives'. They used their 5 senses to problem solve and perform tests. The children managed to identify the apple taste, the squeakiest sound, the 10cm paw print, the minty smell and the most fluffy feeling. They then gathered and recorded their data to help in solving the puzzle of the missing teddy before helping to return the teddy to it's owner. See more photos in our class gallery.


Year 1 have been having lots of fun in Art this week making their Cauliflower Christmas cards! We have been using our handprints to make a Christmas tree, fingerprints to make baubles and lots of sequins and glitter to make our trees sparkle!  See morephotos in our class gallery


Year 1 have enjoyed developing their ball skills during the last three weeks. They have been throwing, catching and bouncing the ball, kicking and controlling it.  This week they were assessing the effectiveness of different types of balls. After testing a range of balls, each child decided which one was best for throwing and catching and which was the easiest to kick.  See more photos in our class gallery
