English

In English we are reading jack and the jelly beanstalk. As an introduction we examined jellybeans by touching and smelling them. We couldn’t eat them because they were magic and we didn’t know what would happen.

Science – Fruit and Vegetables

This week Year 1 have started their new science topic learning about plants. Today they were looking closely and examining some fruit and vegetables that grow on plants and trees. Magnifying glasses were used to help to really see up close the inside of the fruit and veg.

We have some great artists in Year 1. Some of the detailed paintings of the fruit were amazing.
