Year 1 have enjoyed further work on the story Handa Surprise. Children adapted the story by changing some of the animals and creating flow maps to help them write their own story.
This week in Topic we focused on healthy eating and looked at the food pyramid. We learnt that foods belong to different food groups and each group provides different elements in our diet. Children had an exciting challenge of creating their own ‘healthy plate’, where they had to make sure they had an item from each food group as part of their meal.
In Science, we were busy exploring nature and identifying the important parts and properties of various trees. We enjoyed going down to the field and identifying the range of trees we have in school and describing all their similarities and differences.
