Super Rockets!

We had so much fun today creating rockets using different materials. The rockets we created had to protect an egg from cracking so we had to think about what materials we used and why! We used our knowledge of properties of materials to help us! We worked together in groups to plan, design and create. We brought all our ideas together and demonstrated excellent team work! We then went onto the playground and dropped our eggs from a certain height to see if it would crack the egg.

Thank you so much to the staff, children, parents and especially Miss Baldwin for giving me such a lovely last official day as ‘Miss Prescott’. I thought the parents would like to see this very emotional video that Miss Baldwin and the children made without me knowing (very sneaky!). Tissues at the ready!

 

Hoppy Easter!

The children have enjoyed a fun filled couple of days with Easter celebrations. After undertaking our first ‘big write’ about the Easter Story (just look at them independently writing!), we had lots of fun with an Easter egg hunt, a bonnet parade, making our Easter cards, and eating hot cross buns. Ask the children why the buns have a cross on them and why we eat chocolate eggs…do they know what they represent?

Hope you all have an eggsellent Easter!

Miss Prescott :o)

Happy Easter from Year 1!

Yesterday in year 1 we celebrated all the children’s hard work and achievements. They got to share their favourite piece of work from this term with their friends and talked about why they liked it. It was wonderful to see how proud the children were! I am equally as proud of the children and their achievements, they are all SUPERSTARS! Keep up the hard work. Enjoy the Easter break and I hope that the Easter bunny pays a visit!

What do plants need to grow?

During the science days we planted cress seeds.

We decided to do 2 different experiments!

For our first experiment we had 3 sets of planted seeds. The first set of seeds had no water,  the second set of seeds were watered once and the third set of seeds were watered everyday!

We found out that the seeds needed water daily to grow!

For our second experiment we watered 2 sets of planted seeds everyday but we put the first set of seeds in light and the second set of seeds in darkness.

We found out that seeds also need light to grow!

We had lots of fun exploring our  seeds and talking about what we had found out! 🙂
