Year 1 2017/18

Summer 1 Term

This half term we are asking the question 'Who's been sitting in my chair?'

We have been inspired by the famous fairy tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Did you know they loved porridge? We will be making our own porridge and writing instructions for how to make sure your porridge is 'just right'.

We will also be using our Art and DT skills to create a cushion for the three bears to make their chairs as comfy as possible.
