Sorting Everyday Materials

In RE this half term, we have been learning about how Christians celebrate Easter. Year 1 took part in a circle time all about their own Easter traditions whilst enjoying a hot cross bun!

Year 1 have been busy investigating different ways to measure length using resources around the classroom. We have also been comparing, adding and subtracting different lengths and learning how to use a ruler!

Year 1 enjoyed their Climate Change workshop during Science Week! Through drama they explored the ways clothing could be used to help protect our environment.

Year 1 exploring colour mixing and creating artwork in the style of Mark Rothko!
