Today Year 1 hosted Mass at St Mary and St Joseph Rc Church. The children worked hard learning their lines for the Procession of Faith and the Intercessions. We enjoyed singing our school hymns that we have learnt, and reflecting on all the ‘shepherds’ in our lives who help us.
In science for our topic on ‘Plants’, we identified and classified different fruit and vegetables. We talked about their differences and learnt that they are all plants because of how they grow. We named different foods and then decided if they were a fruit or a vegetable. Finally we learnt that some foods we think are vegetables are actually fruit!
For ‘Toy Day’, we brought our favourite toy into school for our topic on ‘Toys’. We named and described our toy and shared the reasons why it is our favourite toy.
We talked about different toys we played with when we were younger and then thought about how we might find out about toys from the past. We wondered what our parents and grandparents played with when they were little!
We talked about the different materials the toys are made of and how they are made.
