Year 1 learn about senses
This term, Year 1 are learning about senses as part of our work in Science. They have been looking at how their senses keep them safe and out of danger, by looking at each sense in turn. During our ‘Sight’ lesson the boys wore blindfolds and tried feeling objects in trays and using their friends to help them navigate around the classroom. We also considered how sometimes our eyes deceive us and watched a clip of the Einstein mask revolving - try it and see!

Year 3 learn about instruction texts
The boys have looked at instructions found at home, for different purposes and followed instructions for making a pop up card. They have compared different instructions to find out what makes them easy to follow and effective.

After learning about how the Roman’s built their roads, they followed instructions to make an edible Roman road, and identified the important features of the instructions.
