Year 1 have had a great half term learning about old and new toys. We had a fantastic visit to Strangers Hall where we helped the toy-maker sort some toys by the material they were made from. We searched for specific items in the toy exhibition and made our own spinning toys. We have also written some fantastic riddles about different toys.
In Science we have had fun experimenting with different materials to find out what their properties are. We have tested materials to see if they are: bendy and stretchy, waterproof and non waterproof, and whether they sink or float. We have applied all our knowledge of materials to design a home for a pet.
What a busy half term, well done Year 1!
