Forest School

The children of the first Forest Group had a fantastic experience at their forest school. Despite the unpredictable weather, they still had fun and created many unforgettable memories. They challenged themselves by climbing, swinging, and jumping, using tools safely, and exploring their creativity. The day always ended with a cup of hot chocolate and a delicious treat.

Popping Popcorn

The nursery children had a lot of fun participating in a science experiment. We made popcorn, just like the little mouse from our story ‘Bear Snores On’.

We used our five senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell to make popcorn.

First, we looked at the popcorn kernels and allowed the children to see, touch, smell, and hear them. Next, we put the kernels in the microwave and discussed the sounds we heard. While the popcorn was popping, we talked about what we saw, heard, and smelled. Once the popcorn was done, we noticed that each kernel had a different shape and that it was warm and fluffy. The most exciting part of our popcorn experiment was getting to eat the popcorn.

Forest School

We had a fantastic experience at Forest School. We went on a trip to ‘Narnia’, which is located in Blackley Forest. We worked collaboratively as a team to create dens for the animals mentioned in our new story, ‘Bear Snores On’. During our time there, we had the opportunity to explore the beautiful natural surroundings and learn about the forest during the winter season. Also, we enjoyed hugging trees.

Year 1 – Science – Everyday Materials – Knowledge Organiser

This term Year 1 are learning about Everyday Materials.

Take a look at the knowledge organiser to reinforce learning at home.

When you are at home or out and about talk about what things are made out of. Talk about why you think it has been made out of that. For example, a window is made out of glass because it is transparent and we can see through it. The sofa is made out of fabric because it is soft and comfy.
