What a super first week back we have had in Year 1! First, we started off with a senses experiment in science where we looked at a couple of different items and thought about whether or not we thought the smell was good or bad. As a class, we agreed that vinegar was a bad smell but hot chocolate and fresh lemon were certainly more pleasant. We also discussed how some smells can sting our eyes a little and that the nose hair is used to keep dust from entering our lungs.
Later in the week, we had a competition to see who could build the best structure that could stand by itself. The children enjoyed using dominoes, cubes and Lego to try and build a strong structure. I was very impressed by the domino structure which could stand by itself and was built with such care and pride.
Lastly, we finished off our week by taking part in a dramatised retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. The children enjoyed performing as Little Red and The Big Bad Wolf and I was so impressed by the confidence and bravery of so many children.
