🌻🎢 Flower, Stem, Leaves and Roots, Leaves and Roots! 🎢🌻

1A had an engaging Science lesson learning about the different parts of a flowering plant. First they created their own plants and then labelled the different parts! It was all very FUN! 





They even learnt a new song to help them to remember the names of each part! The children then discussed why each part is important and what they do to keep the plant alive...













Did you know insects can help plant seeds to grow new flowers?

Visit from Sir William Petty




Today Year 1 enjoyed a visit from Sir William Petty.







 
Sir William told the children about the Great Fire of London.













 
The children found out how to start a fire using a flint stone.


 
They found out where the Great Fire of London started on a map of the City and where the fire spread to.




 The children took part in exercises to explore how and why the Great Fire spread over London.

 They also found out how the people of London put out the fire by passing buckets along a line of people.







Year 1 created fabulous portraits of Sir William Petty and also wrote character descriptions.


What a great day!
