P.E and Games
On Shrove Tuesday we learned about the differences in pancakes around the UK and tasted some pancakes. We also enjoying having pancake races in the playground!
Year 1 have been on a walk around Bowdon, looking at the buildings and how they have changed over time. We learned about terraced and detached houses and used investigative skills to find out and record when the Co-op was built.
When the weather is too wet to use the running track, Year 1 find other ways to get moving! We enjoy using Five a Day to get some exercise. Here we are pretending to be builders!
We enjoyed sharing our favourite books with some of the older children in school!
British Science Week - Making DNA
British Science Week began with a visit from two scientists. They taught us about how DNA makes things different, we even had a go of making (and eating) some DNA of our own! Did you know we share 50% of our DNA with a banana?
British Science Week - Digging for Fossils!
Our love of all things Dinosaurs was greatly fuelled this week; we hunted for fossils and used brushes and magnifying glasses to closely inspect our findings.
British Science Week - Waterproofing Experiment!
The fun of British Science Week continues with a waterproofing experiment. We learnt how to use pipettes to make the experiment a fair test.
During Golden Time this week, Year 1 enjoying using their creativity and inventiveness to create a game of classroom bowling! We really enjoying capturing these action shots!
