Year 1 observed their seeds to identify any changes. We saw a root, stem and leaves. 

To begin our new Science topic, Plants, we looked at the question what are the parts of a plant? We planted our own sees so we can observe them grow into plants and identify the 3 main parts. 

Everyday Materials 

This half term we are learning about everyday materials. 


To begin our unit, the magic toy maker sent us one of his friends. Humpty Dumpty wrote us a letter to ask if we could help him. He was fed up of always hurting himself when he fell off the wall. Our task was to find the best and worst everyday material to protect him. 

Ask your child what we found out from the investigation. 

Year 1 tested different materials to find out whether they are absorbent, transparent, opaque, soft, hard or bendy. 

Seasonal Changes 

Year 1 have been looking at the signs of autumn.
