During the first week of Year One the children worked in small groups to look at a 'Talking Tub'. There was lots of clues inside all linking to the body. The children talked about each of the objects and shared ideas about what they already know about the body and what they would like to learn during our Science lessons this half term.
They came up with some fantastic ideas so throughout our topic we will now be looking at how we can use our bodies (exercise), parts of our body that have important jobs (the senses), people who help us look after our body (doctors, dentists, etc.) and other things such as x-rays.
This half term our Science topic is 'Everyday Materials'. The children will be identifying and sorting different materials, looking at objects to explore which materials they are made from and describing their properties.
We will be linking our learning to our English topic of 'Traditional Tales'. We will be looking at and testing materials that the Three Little Pigs could use to make a new house that is safe so the big, bad wolf can't blow it down.

"The paper towel wasn't waterproof. It had a hole in." - Kyle.
"We used a pipette to squirt 3 drops of water on each object. It was a fair test." - Lily.
