In Science we have been continuing to learn all about different types of weather. Last week we made a cloud in a jar and a rainbow. We had lots of fun!

What a fun week we've had in Year 1! We had a virtual visit from St John's Museum in Warwick to tell us about living and working in the Victorian times. We then had a Victorian laundry afternoon where we grated soap, made soap jelly, did some ironing, washed collars for the Price family and hung out the washing using dolly pegs! It was so much fun!

We learnt about the History of teddy bears and as part of our Design Technology, we made sandwiches which we then enjoyed at our Teddy Bears Picnic!

As part of our learning this week we have been continuing to learn about volume and capacity. We worked with a partner to solve problems such as A is half full and C holds more than A and B. The children then had to pour the correct amount of water into each cup. We had lots of fun! We also looked at birds eye views of the continents from space and used atlases to work out which continent they were!

On Tuesday 23rd March we had a day of reflection to mark a year since lockdown. We made a suncatcher using different shades of yellow paper. We then wrote on our suncatchers the names of our friends and family we love, miss and care about.
