This page will keep you well informed of what Year 1 are learning each term as well as important pieces of information.
What have we been learning?
We have had a very busy half term in Hedgehogs. We have been learning about Toys. In Geography we looked at toys from different countries and played games from another country.
In History we have been looking at how toys have changed over time and looking at the materials they were made of when our grandparents were younger compared to the toys we play with now.
In Science we have been looking closely at different materials: their properties, what objects are made from them and whether they are absorbent or not.
In Design and Technology we have been designing our own toys. We used our learning in Science to decide on the material and Art to decide on a theme.
In Computing we have been exploring the terms Algorithms and Program codes. We became robots and had to follow a set of instructions (algorithms) which we changed into a program code so we could understand it and follow them as robots.
