This week year one have been exploring different turns and having fun programming Bee-Bots to make 1/2, 1/4, 3/4 and whole turns. Take a look at some of the fun we have been having.
Year One have started to explore the language of capacity and experimented using different jugs and small items… take a look.
Year one enjoyed their visit from Simon, AKA the Dinosaur Man, from the Jurassic Classroom. They completed lots of activities relating to fossils and got to hold fossils that are over 65 million years old.
The children had lots of fun making dens to experiment and test the statement ‘Darkness is the absence of light’. The children made dens and tried to ensure there were no gaps for light to creep in. They then tested the effectiveness of their dens using torches.
The children have started the year looking at weighing using scales. They started by exploring the scales and comparing different objects using words such as heavier, lighter or balanced.
