Autumn 1 - The Body
During our first week in Year 1 we talked about our Science topic for this half term. The children discussed lots of super ideas about the body and shared information that they already know and also what they would like to find out.
We started by labelling the body. Lacie volunteered and laid very still on the carpet so the other children could label her body parts. Afterwards, the children wanted to find out how tall they were so we measured some people using unifix cubes.
Autumn 2 - Everyday Materials
This half term our Science topic is all about materials. So far the children have identified and sorted different materials. They have also explored a wide variety of objects to identify the materials they are made from and to describe their properties.
