STEM WEEK- Year One have been on the hunt for the evil pea!

This week we have been learning all about the book 'Supertato' we have had a very naughty, evil pea in year one who has tried to take over Riverside! 

We have had to follow clues to find the evil pea, he even ended up in Mr Jones office!

We have also had the chance to make catapults to fire the evil pea out of school. We had a competition in our classes and then a whole year group competition! Well done year one supertatos! 

1S stem week

Pennywell- Year one enjoyed a fantastic day at Pennywell!

We were all so lucky and took part in feeding goats, hand feeding deer, having a lovely cuddle with lots of farm yard animals. We even milked a goat!

Today, in year 1, we have come to school in costume! We are superheroes and will be using our superpowers this week to solve lots of Science, Technology, and Engineering and Mathematics problems and save the day.
We have been looking at the story ‘Supertato’ by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. In it a potato superhero has to save the other vegetables from an escaped, evil Pea!
We have done lots of activities linked to the story including; untangling the characters from padlocks and string, saving frozen veg entombed in ice, painting using peas and carrots and looked at how coloured dye travels up the stem of a flower to change the colour of the petals.
