Welcome to Year 1

This half term, Year 1 have been learning about...

We began this year with a fantastic trip to the Royal Armouries as part of our Castles and Knights topic. We explored the museum, got to try on types of armour and watched a sword fight!

This half term we have been learning about The Three Little Pigs (including types of houses and homes in Geography) as well as learning all about different materials (in Science). We have been enjoying retelling the story of The Three Little Pigs and creating our own houses using different materials for World Book Day.

In Science we have been comparing properties of materials such as wood, metal, plastic, fabric and glass. We have tested which materials will sink or float and which materials are waterproof. At the end of this half term we will be testing which materials will work best to protect an egg when dropped from a height.
