In year 1 we have been exploring the human body and our 5 senses. We became ‘sense detectives’ and were given clues to help us to find the missing teddy bear. We completed lots of different experiments where we had to taste, hear, see, touch and smell things. We have also used our learning about senses to help us in Literacy. We are looking at the poem ‘That’s What I Like’ by Janice Johnston and having a go at writing our own poems based on things we like to see, smell, hear, taste and touch.
Making Stuart Houses – Parent Activity
This half term we have been learning about The Great Fire of London in history. We have explored where and how the fire started and compared houses from 1666 to the houses we live in today. With the help of our parents, we made our own Stuart houses and then recreated The Great Fire of London to help us understand why and how the fire spread so quickly. We had lots of fun creating the houses and were all amazed by how quickly they were destroyed by the fire.
