Welcome to Year 1

Dear Parents,

During the school closure I will be updating this page with activities and work which can be completed at home. Please keep checking back regularly for any updates.

Thank you for your support during this time.

Mrs McVittie

Science Project

As part of our science topic ‘materials’, the children looked and sorted a range of everyday materials (plastic, wood, glass, etc). We then thought about the properties of these materials and designed and built houses for the Three Little Pigs.

To extend the children’s learning, they could build a house or den for a toy in their house. Ask them to think about what material would be good for a roof, how could we make a door, etc. It would be lovely to see your creations, so please send me a picture when it is completed. Have Fun!
