Year 1 - Bengal Tiger class
This year, all classes at Holy Trinity are named after an endangered animal. Year One have chosen Bengal Tigers and will be learning lots of facts about tigers and what it means to be endangered. It also links nicely to a class text later in the year – the Tiger Who Came to Tea! Year One have learnt that each tiger has a completely different patterned fur to the next so decided that tigers are just like us- all different! We have also been learning lots about where Bengal tigers come from-India- and how it is very different to where we live. Year One have also adopted their very own tiger from WWF to help us learn about conservation and how we can help the tigers.
IPC and STEM
Year 1's IPC topic this half term is "We Are What We Eat". In Geography, e will be finding out about where our food comes from and why different foods grow and are eaten in different countries.
In History, we’ll be finding out about the food that our parents and grandparents ate when they were young and how and why the choice of food in our shops has changed. We may even use food to create some artistic masterpieces!
We will be having a fun day making healthy pizza for our Design and Technology day and will be sure to reflect on what we did well and what might work better next time.
Our IPC topic links really well to our Science topic of "Animals Including Humans" where we will be learning all about our body parts, and our different senses. We will be doing an experiment where we will act as "Sense Detectives"! Check back for pictures of us in action!
