Science

In year one, we learn about the seasons. Use the attached template to draw your favourite thing about each season. Challenge yourself by naming which months are in each season. 
This continues the science work on the 5 senses. Recap the 5 senses - what are they and why are they useful? Then have a go at this scavenger hunt! 

If you finish, perhaps you could write your own scavenger hunt for someone else to complete. 

A plant scavenger hunt! 

 

If you are lucky enough to have a garden or some outdoor space near you use the sheet below to go on a scavenger hunt to see how many different types of plant you can spot. What is the same about them? What is different about them? Which do you like the best? 

 

Maybe you could pick up some leaves or petals from the ground and use them to create a collage of a plant? I would love to see what you do! 

(Parents - I have attached a document with all the year 1 terminology for plants!) 

Plants 

 

This half term, our Science topic was going to be all about plants. Talk to your child about the structure of a plant and what each part is called. If you are lucky enough to have a garden, you could observe how plants grow and what they look like at each part of the process. I have attached a powerpoint which names and identifies the different parts of a plant. 

Maybe you could ask your child to draw a picture of a plant and label the key parts? I would love to see them!

Senses

 

Can you name the 5 senses? Talk about what they are and which part of the body we use for each one. Then have a go completing this senses grid. You can use your own ideas or you can use the picture cards to help you. 

Trees trees trees! 

 

In Science, we have been looking at the ways in which trees change over a year. If you have a garden or an open space near you, go and have a look at what the trees look like in Spring. Perhaps you could create a piece of art to show me the colours and textures you see? Enjoy!

Floating and Sinking

Listen to this story and discuss why things might float or sink. Can you find some materials around your house which float in a sink of water? Remember to take some photos to email me!
