Year 1 and 2

In Science we have been learning about light and dark as part of the IPC unit: Seeing the Light. We planned fair tests to find out what seeds need to grow into healthy plants and to investigate how important light is for plant growth. We loved seeing how our seeds grew and found out that the seeds did grow without light, but they did not look very healthy. We have also been finding out the difference a light source and reflection and testing different materials for their reflective qualities. In IPC we practised our mapping skills, drawing maps of the school grounds where we will record the light sources we have discovered in this area.

Our fractions learning in maths became a feast as we ‘shared’ cakes and investigated halves and wholes using cookies!

We worked in pairs to plan our own stories based on the Three Little Pigs and then we wrote our creative versions in Big Writing, Our characters included a range of animals including elephants, mice and even a rhinoceros.
