Today in Science we began to look at materials.
We identified and matched up materials to their correct name.
Then we looked around the classroom to see if we could find anything that was made from wood, metal or fabric.
Next we will be thinking about what sort of materials we have in our home. Can you think of any?
In Year 1 this week we have been planning our own story.
We are reading 'Man on the Moon' and decided to create our own story, but this time, with our very own alien as the main character!
But before we started writing, we retold our story to our partner using our special sentence starter prompts.
We are working so hard in Year 1 to be excellent communicators and we all did such a wonderful job retelling our stories.
On Thursday Year 1 visited the Science museum to learn more about how astronauts travel into space!
We are reading 'Man on the Moon' in English and learning about Neil Armstrong in History, so our trip to the museum was really interesting for us.
We learned about people going into space and how they get there. Maria even got to dress in a space sleeping bag!
Afterwards we looked around the museum and found some rockets!
