Year 1 Mass

We were lucky enough to be invited to a mass at Ss Henry and Elizabeth Catholic Church. We enjoyed having time to look around the church and admire all the beautiful religious artefacts. 

Science - minibeasts

To start off our minibeast topic we went out to explore the garden and used magnifying glasses to spot as many minibeasts as we could. 

Trees

To finish off our topic on plants we looked closely at the different trees on our school field. We recorded there name, height, age, colour and collected some leaves from the trees. We had great fun doing tree rubbings and creating posters to show all of our findings. What do you think of our posters....

Measuring 

This week we have been learning all about measuring and comparing lengths. 

Science - Parts of a plant 

Today we explored the garden, we carefully dug up plants to look at the roots. The plants were brought back to class and put in pots of water, we observed the roots closely and drew them. 

Making bead strings

We made our own bead strings to help us with our addition and subtraction.

Term 5 Science - Plants

To start our topic, we had a visit from some botanists.
