During Science week Year 1 investigated their bodies by measuring and comparing different body parts. We explored the questions ‘Does the tallest person have the biggest feet?’ ‘Does the person with the biggest feet have the biggest hands?’ and ‘Can the person with the longest legs jump the furthest?’ We started the week using non-standard units to measure and moved on to measuring in centimetres with rulers and tape measures. The children also enjoyed our visit from Pfizers where the children learnt how to wash their hands correctly. They had to place their hands under an infra-red light to ensure they had washed off all the germs! The children also had the opportunity to explore different bugs under a microscope and to find out different facts. It was a fantastic week!
