hot air balloons
As part of our ‘Up, up and away’ topic we made papier-mâché hot air balloons. We used (lots!) of layers of newspaper and tissue paper. We were most pleased with the results!
This half term, we have been learning about Australia. We have looked at aboriginal art and listened to aboriginal music. We all had the chance to play a digeridoo – it was very tricky to make a sound and it was very heavy!
Senses in science
Year 1 have been learning about their senses in Science. We have been making string telephones and trying different foods and drinks to help us understand about our senses hearing and taste.
We have been finding out facts about owls in our topic this term and were able to "meet" some lovely animals when the owl man came. Did you know they are so silent when flying because their feathers are so fluffy and soft? Or that they can't actually turn their heads all the way around?
