Our Senses

Year One have been learning about ourselves in Science.  This week we looked at the five senses; touch, sight, taste, hearing and smelling.  We worked in groups to try and guess what items were using only one sense.  It was great fun but was also quite hard to do.  We wore blindfolds to try and Continue reading

World Book Day

Everyone in Owls class had fantastic fun coming dressed as some of their favourite book characters for World Book Day. We had a special assembly where we got to see and hear about everyone’s costumes and then we all walked out to Waterstones to choose a new book each. We were surrounded by super heroes, princesses, animals and Continue reading

Body Parts

Our Science topic for this term is body parts. We worked together to name body parts and place labels on a body, and we have been thinking about which body parts rhyme so we can make up our own version of heads, shoulders, knees and toes!

Narnia workshop

In teams of 10 we took part in curling, sitting volleyball and pulled ourselves along on wheeled boards with just Continue reading

Plants

Our Science topic last term was plants. We planted lots of different plants, so we could watch them grow and look at all of the different parts of a plant. We ate different plant parts – the flower, the stem, the leaves and the roots, and we planted, harvested and ate our very own cress. We will carry Continue reading
