Year 1AH Explore the Fitness Circuit

Miss Hemphill's class had great fun exploring the fitness circuit. We have been working on travelling in Physical Development sessions and we put our skills to good use. We had to balance, climb, step up and down and travel on a rope. It was hard work but fun.

Miss Hemphill's class enjoyed problem solving today. We had to explore different ways of making 10. We used Cuisenaire rods, Numicon Tiles, Pom Poms and Towers of 10. We worked with a partner and recorded our answers. Miss Hemphill recorded all our answers at the end in a Circle Map! Great work Year 1.

Year 1AH have been learning all about milk and other products that are made from milk. Today we turned cream into butter. We observed the changes as it turned from a liquid into a solid. It was hard work shaking the tub but we showed great perseverance. Well done 1AH!
