Building bridges not walls
Today in year 1 we combined our maths and DT skills in building bridges to see which would hold the most weight. We looked at how shape, thickness of paper, amount of sellotape and height could help support weight. Year 1 proved very successful in designing and making some fantastic bridges. ALL supported different weighted cars. Well done Year 1. Below are some photos from the afternoon.
Welcome back to term 6 I hope you have had a fantastic break and that your children are ready and raring to take on our LAST TERM TOGETHER!! Can you believe its the last term? We have lots of things to look forward to this term from creating our own James and the giant peach inspired stories to learning about the USA and Savannah. Please read our term 6 topic web to find out more about what we are up to. Remember if you have any questions, quires of concerns please don't hesitate to contact me or the school office.
Its not rocket science!
What an incredible day of learning! Year 1 have really embraced their cross curricular learning through our first STEM (Science, technology, engineering and maths) project this term. I was very impressed with their resilience and hard work.
The children were given the question "How high can my rocket fly?" The children designed a rocket making a list of materials and things they will need in order to make them. They estimated and measured distance and capacity. We predicted which combination of liquid and tablet would build up the most gas to make our rocket go and we tested that prediction.
Here are some of the photos showing the children's hard work and determination.
Well done Year 1 here is to the next project.
Welcome to Year 1,
A huge welcome back to school after our Easter break. I hope your children are feeling refreshed and ready to make even more progress in the new term. Please read our curriculum overview to see what we are up to this term.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and is to be returned the following Wednesday each week. It will follow the same rotation between Mathematics, reading comprehension and a writing task. However, spellings will be given out each week and tested on Wednesdays. Please ensure that you read regularly with your child as this has great benefits to their academic success.
Finally, thank you for your support and please if you would like to speak to me about anything concerning your child please do not hesitate to book an appointment with me through the school office.
