This term in Year 1 our topic has been ‘Memory Box’ we have found out lots about each others memories and looked back at how school life has changed and our local area. To help us talk about the past and how we have grown and changed we brought in items from when we were younger and talked about why we don’t need or use them anymore. In Geography we went on a walk around the local area to find human and physical features, we talked about houses, roads and explored the features in the local park, we even saw some of the children’s houses! In Science we labelled our body parts and used our senses to explore sweet and savoury food. To do this we made made a range of sandwiches with different fillings to eat and explored the flavours we could taste. To bring all our learning together at the end of our topic we made our own memory boxes with items from home. First, we wrote a label for our box and decorated it using a range of materials, then we wrote a message to go in our box to read in years to come. We enjoyed sharing our memory boxes in class with our friends and took our boxes home to share with our family.
