During the summer term we will be using all of our knowledge we have learnt so far to investigate further and work scientifically. We will be gathering and recording data from the strength of our bridges we build in DT to help us answer the question ‘which is the strongest bridge?’
During the spring term we will be looking at materials, with a focus on plastics and the environment. We will find out about how materials can be recycled and how they can be harmful to sea creatures and the ocean.
Our topic for Autumn is Animals including humans, we will look at different offspring's and how they grow into adults. We will find out about and describe the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival (water, food and air) and investigate the importance for humans of exercise, eating the right amounts of different types of food, and hygiene.
Year 1 have been exploring which ingredient would make ice melt the quickest to find the hidden sweet inside. The ingredients that were tested were salt, sugar and flour. We found that salt melted the ice quickest because salt has a lower freezing point than water.
