‘As each one does their part, we grow in love’

Summer Term 2024

Year 1 Summer 1

The highlight of our half term has definitely been our fantastic trip to Beaulieu! The children had a wonderful day learning about life in a Victorian house and also about the history of travel through the  ages. The children got to experience what life was like for boys and girls during the Victorian times and also got to sit in an old-fashioned car and learn about how transport has changed. We have been learning about Plants in Science and have really enjoyed watching our broad bean seeds grow. The children have filled in weekly bean diaries to show the change over time of their plants. In Maths we have worked hard on Multiplication and Division, learning how to group and share objects and also count in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. We have focused a lot on the Jack and the Beanstalk text in English and written our own diary entries in role as Jack! We finished off the half term with an amazing science week focusing on Space! The children got to experience a planetarium in the Wonderdome and created their own straw-powered rockets, chalk art planets and carried out an investigation into moon craters! We also learnt how to be an astronaut and took part in ‘Astronaut Training Camp’ as well as creating information texts on how to become an astronaut! Overall a wonderful and exciting term for the children in Cherry Class!
