Over the year in science we follow the National Curriculum which states Year 1 children are required to learn about; 'Everyday Materials', 'Seasons', 'Animals Including Humans' and 'Identifying Plants'. 

Animals Including Humans

We're still working hard in science to learn about animals, here are some of the things we've been up to! Some are adult activities are some are independent and provision based activities. 

Tristan from Zoo Lab visited us with some of his animals to teach us about animal classes.

Everyday Materials


We were testing objects to see if they could float. 

We had a letter off Traction Man! He wanted us to test materials to see if they were waterproof.

We played on a fun game on the computer that asked us to sort objects based on their material.
