Science in Year One

This week Year One have been experimenting with different materials. They had to make a house using bricks, sticks, straws or paper and joining methods such as tape, string, rubber bands and glue. They had lots of fun and had to work carefully as a group, listening to each other, using Growth Mindset methods (especially perseverance) to make the structures better. They then tested the strength of their houses by pretending to be the big bad wolf (using a hairdryer). They made predictions, carried out the experiment and evaluated our findings. Well Done Year One!


Here are some websites to help your child with their phonics.
