Year 1 have returned after the Easter break with plenty of new ideas and topics to be exploring. Healthy eating will be playing a major part in our topic work for the summer term. We asked all of the children to bring in from a home a selection of fruit. As you can see from the video above, we held a fruit tasting session to see which are our favourite. This work will then continue as we plan and prepare our own fruit kebabs.
We have also been continuing with our literacy work in Year 1 based around our current class-reading book of Where the Wild Things Are. All of the children have produced their own book re-telling the story. We have used role-play to help understand the feeling of the characters, as well as wearing our Wild Things masks to help us explore more about the characters.
Science work in Year 1 is all about different forces for this term. In particular we are interested in the difference between a push and a pull. We started off our experiments in the classroom, playing with our favourite toys and pushing and pulling them. We then treated Year 1 to a trip to the local park. We played on the many rides and activities in the park, and once again talked about the difference between a push and a pull.
