Earth Cookies

Year 1 have had a brilliant time baking Earth cookies. First we had to measure out the correct amount of ingredients and then give it all a good stir. After that we had to half the mixture and add the food colouring. Then it got messy!! We had to use our hands to mix the two cookies mixtures together to make an Earth. Shortly after it was time for cooking them. Unfortunately when they were cooked some of the colouring faded but they still tasted super yummy!

Fruit rocket lollies

Year 1 made fruit rocket lollies fit to travel into space!! We used a variety of fruit including strawberries, blueberries, banana, grapes,watermelon, pineapple and oranges. We had to think about which fruits would be good as the nose of the rocket and which ones would make a good body. Then we just had to taste them!! YUMMY!

Researching planets

Year 1 have been working very hard to research their own facts about planets and record their information in a book.

Trying astronaut food!

In Year 1 we have sampled some astronaut food, most of us enjoyed it but some of us really didn't like the texture.

Broad bean update

We've picked our beans!! Year 1 are so proud that we have grown our own food produce and picked our own beans to take home.

Magna

WOW! What an amazing day Year 1 had at MAGNA. We first took part in a fasinating workshop where we explored night and day. We had to pretend to be the Moon orbitting Earth and the Earth orbitting the sun. Then we began to investigate how rockets worked; looking at forces and experimenting. We discovered that using fuel was the best power for a rocket and that air wasnt that effective.

Soon after our workshop we explored the different pavilions: Water, Earth and Fire. We even had the chance to watch the big melt show. 

Broad bean plant update

Recently our beans have been growing brilliantly, it wont be long until we can pick them.

KS1 sports day

FS2, Year 1 and Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed their sports day! We had 11 different events and a rest station. Many skills were used throughout the day including running, throwing and jumping. Everybody tried their very best and as a school we are extremely proud of everyone! Well done to Green Galaxy team who managed to win the Mr Plant trophy.

RE

Year 1 had a lovely time learning about Shabbat with Mrs Fretwell.

Talk for eating - healthy snack

Year 1 and FS2 loved making their healthy snacks. In Year 1 we designed our own vegetable snack to look just like a tree from a rainforest. Then we had a go at making our creation with the real thing. FS2 were invited to our classroom to enjoy tasting our snacks as well as Year 1 trying what FS2 had made. We loved trying the different foods and even finding out which vegetables we like.
