Year 1

Welcome to Year 1: Miss Appleyard, Mrs Schulz, Mrs Whitworth and Mrs Chadwick

In Science we have been learning about different materials and their properties. We have looked at materials such as tinfoil, cellophane, fabric and paper. We carried out an experiment to find out which material is waterproof and could be used for a hole in an umbrella. We found that cellophane or tinfoil would be a good waterproof material. 

Science Experiment

HT3 Timetable and Overview

In Design and Technology we have learnt how to make a pom pom. We designed and drew our Christmas Pom Pom and then used wool and a stencil to make it. We watched a grown up use warm glue to stick on some accessories for our pom poms. 

In Art we have been using clay to mould our own model of a minibeast. We used different tools to shape our model and then painted them. 

HT2 Timetable and Overview

In Science we have been learning all about different animals, what they like to eat and how they look after themselves. We were very lucky to have a visit from Miss Appleyard's tortoise, Charlie Brown! We asked some great questions and loved holding her and feeling the different parts of her shell.

Please see below the Powerpoint from the Meet the Teacher morning last Friday. As discussed in the meeting, if you have any questions or queries, please get in touch either via email or the school office.

Please see attached our Timetable and Weekly Overview for Half Term One. This Half Term we are identifying different types of animals in Science, and reading books by the same author in English, such as What the Ladybird Heard and A Squash and A Squeeze.
