Fen Ditton Primary School

Year 1

Term 1

The autumn term has been busy for the Peacocks. They have been learning about animals (including humans) and everyday materials in science.  They learned about the five senses and how we use these and grouped animals based on their features or what they eat.   We then moved on to everyday materials; investigating different types of materials, what materials different objects were made from and the properties of different materials. We conducted an experiment to see which materials would make a good umbrella for Ted.

As part of our Superhero topic, the children undertook challenges in their learning to free Super Sparkle who had been captured by Evil Ernie.  In addition, they created superhero city sky scenes in art.  During the first part of the term they also enjoyed Forest School with Toni.
