Curriculum Overview

What have we been doing in Year 1?

Great Fire of London

We have been learning about the Great Fire of London and Year 1 have created some fantastic work using Purple Mash. 

Science Week

Year 1 have been exploring the strength of different materials to help us to create a marble run. We conducted an experiment to test the materials with the question “Which Material is Strongest?” where we made a prediction and tested a variety of materials. We then chose the best materials (wood and cardboard) to create our marble runs. We used our STEM skills to sketch our marble runs and then used a glue gun to create it.

In teams the children then designed their marble runs, made them, tested them, altered them then played with them.  This used the knowledge the children had gained from our unit of work on Everyday materials.

After we tested our marble runs and evaluated them. We thought about how we could ‘innovate for the future’ and how we could make them better.
