To launch our new enquiry, 'Who helps who?', Year 1 had three visitors who came in to talk to them about the people they help in their jobs. We had a visit from Alexei's Dad, James, who told us all about his role as a nurse. He showed us some of the equipment that he uses to help people and we were able to ask him some really well-thought out questions. We also enjoyed hearing about how Mr Hopkins and Mrs Riddell help look after us and our school every day.
Now that we have had photo permission slips returned, we will start posting lots more photographs of our learning on our year group webpage. Here are some photos from our hat-tastic fashion show today (18.10.19). The children have been busy this term answering their first enquiry question, 'what is my hat made of?' The children became engineers as they had to design and create a hat for a specific purpose. Don't they all look fantastic?!
During our first enquiry, 'what is my hat made of?', the children showed such creativity and innovation whilst being engineers, scientists and artistic designers. The children each designed and made a hat for a specific purpose and they thought carefully about their design and which materials they would need to use. They had a go at testing materials and designing a prototype before making the finished product. I am sure you'll agree they all look fantastic!
