Year 1 Learning Examples

Science

Year 1 had a great day learning all about Space. We went off in our rockets to learn a song all about the 8 planets in our solar system. We then coloured, cut out and ordered them correctly (the song really helped us with this!) Next we learnt about the relative sizes of planets, with Mercury being the size of a peppercorn, Earth a cherry tomato and Jupiter the size of a grapefruit! In the afternoon we learnt about how day and night are made using torches and pretending to be Earth and the moon orbiting around the sun. Finally we made our own model with split pins to recreate the Earth and moon’s orbit. Come and ask us more about our learning as we learnt so many interesting and out of this world facts.

Materials

Year 1 had a great time investigating which materials would be suitable for a helmet for the character in our class book, Traction Man. They had to use their scientific skills to predict which material would be best and investigated the properties of them. They had a great time while applying their knowledge practically.  

Toys

Year 1 have been learning all about old and new toys in their History lessons. This week, the children were allowed to bring in their favourite toy and explain why they loved it so much. They then had a chance to share their toys with their friends.

7 Habits

Seahorse Class have been learning all about the 7 Habits and created our amazing Habit Tree.
