Year One had a fire in the wildlife area as an introduction to our topic The Great Fire of London
To Introduce The Great Fire of London we went into our woodland area and built our own fire - it was AMAZING!!!
After we had learned how The Great Fire was Stopped we made houses out of 3d shapes (A cube and a square based pyramid). Then we took them to the woodland area and burned them to see that blowing up some houses created a space and the fire stopped spreading - wow!
In Science we have been learning about Materials and their Properties. Please watch our Photostory Presentation to see our learning.
We have been practicing our ball skills in PE this term - see how our catching skills are developing.
Look at our 3 dimensional (3d) shapes.

Books are changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. They are only changed if the reading comment in their diary shows that they have read the book. So please fill in your child's diary and send it into school. Children in Year 1 will get rewards for reading regularly, these include a bookmark, a badge and even a book to take home!
