British Science Week in Y1 - Time for Healthy Eating

We had a special visitor today - nutritionist who taught us about healthy eating.  We learnt how important time is for our bodies to grow healthy and strong. We learnt that eating colourful fruits and veggies helps us stay strong over time. We even made pretty posters showing all the yummy foods we should eat every day! It was really fun and interesting!

Celebrating World Book Day in Merton Abbey!

Y1 made an extraordinary effort by going above and beyond in dressing up as book characters. The day was packed with activities, including designing the perfect reading place, dropping everything to read with Y5 children and an assembly featuring special guests Dorothy, Toto, and Mr Wonka, who sold out all his chocolates. But who is the golden ticket winner?

Mercury Moments: The Science of Seasons

During the science lesson, Y1 children had fun discovering the wonders of fall. They used thermometers to check that it was chilly at 15 degrees. They made a happy 'leaf man' with leaves and twigs. The playground was wet with colourful leaves. Even though the sky was blue, it felt cold and windy.

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice - Year 1's Sweet Journey at Sainsbury's

As part of our Literacy learning (writing a recount), Year 1 went to Sainsbury’s in Collier’s Wood to buy ingredients to make Gingerbread Men. During our visit to Sainsbury's, the children were excited to pick out ingredients for making Gingerbread Men.

Seasonal Changes: Where Science Meets Art

As part of the Y1 autumn-themed science lessons, the children have been learning about the reasons behind these seasonal changes. In Year 1, learning is a dynamic experience that encourages pupils to connect with nature. To further enhance their understanding, the young scientists were tasked with a creative project. Their posters showcase the vibrant colours of autumn leaves, capturing the beauty of the season and the science behind it.
