Then we presented our work to the class.
In science Year One have been learning about plants. Today we went into the wildlife area to investigate and find out if there are more evergreen or deciduous trees in our area. We went outside and searched for different types of trees and recorded our findings. We found out that there are more deciduous trees in the wildlife area. It was lots of fun!
This week Year 1 have been looking at fiction and nonfiction books. Today we looked at a selection of fiction and nonfiction books and compared them. We found out that nonfiction books have lots of facts, usually photographs, contents pages and a glossary. Fiction books are made up stories and have pictures drawn by an illustrator.
