Spring Term 2 'Why is Spring the season of new beginnings?"

This half term the children were finding out about the season of Spring and learning about changes in the weather, plants, trees and animals they see.  They created their own Spring Art and also learned about the Easter story.

On Thursday 24th March, Year 1 children visited Roves Farm, near Swindon to experience first-hand life on a farm in the Spring.  They saw goats, piglets, lambs and llamas and had a tour of the farm on a trailor.  The children were lucky to witness a ewe give birth to 5 lambs which is a one in a milion chance!

Spring Term 1 - How do we know that dinosaurs existed?

During the autumn term, the Year 1 children were learning about dinosaurs, when they lived, how they lived and why they became extinct.  They created a timeline signposting the different eras of dinosaur evoluntion and creating a museum style exhibiton of their work and discoveries.

Y1 Dinosaur Workshop

Dinosaur Workshop

On Monday 24th January, the Year 1 children had some very special visitors....including a baby dinosaur called Mia, a toddler velociraptor called Bella and a T-Rex called Sophie!  Luckily, all the dinosaurs had been fed before they arrived, so no children were harmed during their learning.  As well as being extremely exciting, we all know a lot more about herbivores, carnivores and omnivore dinosaurs.  Later, we were able to discover how fossils were made and all had a go at being a paleontologist, using paintbrushes to discover and identify fossils.  The children have written up their knowledge in literacy lessons, just like real scientists and have created some great factual writing.

Spring Walk

Year 1 children went for a walk down to Hungerford Marsh to see the Whirly pool and look for signs of Spring.  They were also looking out for animals and birds who live in a marsh habitat and seeing which sort of plants thrive in that environment.
