Spring Term

1.1 had an amazing time visiting Hertfordshire Zoo. We attended a workshop and continued to learn about mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish. We loved getting to see all of these animal groups around the zoo.

1.1 had a great time celebrating World Book Day. We created our own monster and used adjectives to describe it, had a story swap with Year 4, wrote our own books and met the author Luke Temple in our workshop.

1.1 enjoyed creating their own hungry caterpillar using fruit and vegetables as part of our HCL workshop today.

1.1 enjoyed making cowboy caviar and tortilla cups as part of Food Festival Week. We continued to practice our cutting skills using the bridge method.

Autumn Term

In DT 1.1 worked in groups and applied their knowledge of ways to join cardboard to build their own structure.
