Year 1

Theme – Indian Spice – We had an exciting visit from In2Culture to learn about Indian culture. We looked at an Indian Dohl drum. We also learned about Bhangra dancing and how it is a celebration of Harvest time. We all enjoyed doing a Bhangra dance. Later we listened to a traditional Indian tale and looked at some Indian clothes too.

        

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

Science – Everyday Materials – We went for a walk around the outside of the school and looked at the different materials used to build it. After reading the story of The Little Pigs, the children got into small groups to design and build houses made from art straws, lollipop sticks and Lego bricks. They predicted that the brick houses would be the strongest! We tested each house using a hair dryer and a timer. We discussed the importance of a fair test.
