Welcome to Year 1 at Tweseldown Infant School.
The last half term in Year 1 is upon us and it is sure to be a memorable one!
Our topic is called 'Wonderland'. There will be lots to learn based on the theme of 'Alice in Wonderland'.
We will be investigating existing tables and reviewing them before designing our own to support a teacup. We will make a table using different materials and strengthening techniques. Testing our tables will be the interesting part...will it hold the teacup without breaking?
The children will be making mini papier mache hats in the style of the Mad Hatter's top hat. They will also compare their explorations of the weather and local environment in spring with it now, in summer. 'Which of our senses is most accurate at identifying foods?' is our big question in science. We will investigate our predictions using jelly.
Following on from last half term's Platinum Jubilee topic, we will be diving into the past and learning about Queen Victoria and Queen ELizabeth I and comparing their reigns to our current Queen's.
We are looking forward to Sports Week, The Summer Stroll and Camo Day. Here's to a wonder-filled half term!
