Welcome to Class 1.
Our topic this term is ‘The Great Outdoors’. We will be spending lots of time exploring outside, learning about the differences between natural and man-made objects, and using these objects in our art work. We will also finding out about the properties of everyday materials, using specific vocabulary to describe them such as waterproof, opaque, hard, soft. We will be conducting scientific experiments to find out the best materials for specific objects, e.g. ‘what is the best material for an umbrella?’
