Trip to the Museum of Science and Technology!

Trip to the Museum of Science and Technology!

Today Year 1 enjoyed a class outing to the Museum of Science and Technology. We saw some interesting household items from the past and talked about how life must have been different in times gone by. We saw some old toys and thought about how they compare with toys we have today. Then everyone enjoyed playing in the Children’s Science Centre. Our favourite part was the room which fools gravity and makes it really difficult to balance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving!

For Thanksgiving we decided to make turkey handprints. We talked about why we celebrate Thanksgiving and what we were thankful for.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We need to realise that all families are different and we all have different traditions that we do during Thanksgiving. Many of our families come from different parts of the world and have many languages to share. We are all unique families and that should be shared. We can be thankful for people in our families, for good health, for shelter, and for good food.

 

 

 

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

 

 

 

Year 1 Celebrate Bonfire Night!

Year 1 Celebrate Bonfire Night!

The children enjoyed learning all about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night. They were very interested in the story of the gunpowder plot and asked lots of fantastic questions about the story.

 

 

The children explored different ways of painting fireworks. First they tried painting a picture on the computer. Then the children also tried printing using straws to create lovely firework patterns.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We hope everyone had a fun and safe bonfire night!
