Year 1 - Starfish

Term 1

Starfish class put on their capes and became superheroes.

We learnt about about real-life heroes from the past and explored our senses of smell, touch, taste, hearing and sight. We investigated different foods and found out which ones were super! We created many superhero works of art which we shared at the end of our project in a super art exhibition.

Term 4

River Reptiles and Rodents visit

 

This term our topic is ‘Dinosaur Planet’.  We will be looking closely at ancient fossils and studying reptiles to understand how dinosaurs may have lived and eventually died out.  We have already had a visit from River Reptiles and seen some animals up close. We learnt that dinosaurs would have shed their skin just like snakes do now!
