Year 1 – Science – Animals including Humans – Senses

This half term in Science, Year 1 will be learning about their senses. The children will be identifying body parts and which body part helps for each of the five senses.

We will be exploring each sense by going on senses walks, looking at and feeling different objects, listening to different sounds and even smelling and tasting different foods.

Here is the senses knowledge organiser to support with your child’s learning at home. Perhaps you could explore with your senses at home too. Have fun!

Year 1 – History – Old and New Toys

In our History lessons this half term the children will be learning about old and new toys.

Our topic title is “Whose toys are more exciting, ours or our great grandparents?”

The children will explore both olden day and modern day toys, they will discover what the toys are made out of, what features they have and similarities and differences between old and new toys.

Here is a knowledge organiser – you can use this to ask your child questions about the topic and even teach them or ask them about the different vocabulary that is being used throughout our topic.
