What a busy term we have had so far in Class Simmonds with our enquiry into what makes a good home. In Science we have looked at building materials and at which makes them most suitable for their purpose. We then had an opportunity to visit Broughton Manor building site to have a closer look at the building process and ask lots of questions to the kind site manager. In Geography we have compared physical and natural features of South Africa and England and In History we’ve identified how homes have changed through the years. More recently we have been lucky enough to have a visitor speak to us about the celebration of Holi. The class enjoyed trying on some traditional outfits, celebration snacks and dance moves.
In Numeracy Year One have been introduced to the two, five- and ten-times tables and are enjoying learning some catching tunes in their daily practice of them. We have been learning how to write number sentences and use pictorial representations of problems.
