Term 5 Highlights
DT - Healthy Smoothies
In DT this term we learnt all about how to keep our bodies healthy. We explored different fruits and vegetables, and found out where and how they grow. We then got to taste three different smoothies without knowing what was in them. There was a mix of carrots, cucumber, strawberries, banana, pineapple, spinach, apple juice or orange juice. We enjoyed some, others we weren't so keen. We then chose which one we liked best and got to make our own. We then linked this to computing a videoed our friends making their smoothies, pretending to be TV chefs.
Science - Senses
In Science this term we have been learning all about the five senses. We have had fun investigating each one including trying to guess the flavour of jelly beans using only our sense of taste and trying to identify different smells which included peppermint and lemon. We also learnt how one sense can trick another. We smelt red rice pudding, some of thought it smelt of strawberries, raspberries and chili. It actually smelt of vanilla.
Year 1 School Trip
This term we visited Singleton Environmental Centre where we continued to investigate senses. We learnt how different animals see by wearing special glasses and changing the lenses in them. We smelt lots of lovely herbs and plants such as rosemary and lavender and went on a nature hunt around the centre.
