This week Year 1 went for our Autumn walk which was great fun. The children learnt to observe as scientists. We found chestnuts and mushrooms and learnt why leaves change colour in Autumn.

We used our drama skills to role play ‘The Gruffalo’s Child’. The children then performed in front of the class in their groups.

This half term we have been looking at 'Materials'. We investigated which material is best to make a spoon: paper, plastic or metal.
