This is a super exciting term in KS1. We are starting our project on Fossil Hunting.
What is it like to be a fossil hunter?
How do you identify fossils?
How are fossils formed?
Who are the real fossil hunters?
What are fossils?
They are remains or traces of ancient life.
Fossils of big animals like T-rex are very rare. Rare means there are not many of them. Fossils of smaller creatures like ammonites and trilobites are much easy to find.
Part and whole model
In maths we have been using the part and whole model. Watch the videos below to find out how the whole part model has been used for addition within 10, finding the missing part and addition fact families.
Can you make a whole part model at home and have a go at writing addition fact families for numbers within 10?
What do animals do during the winter?
This week in science, we have been looking at animals in winter. We asked the question 'What do animals do during winter?'
We have learnt three new words: adapt, hibernate and migrate.
Adapt – Some animals adapt, which means they change their behaviour or bodies. Some animals grow thicker fur to keep warm, some eat food which they have collected in the autumn and saved for winter, and other animals eat different kinds of food as the seasons change.
Hibernate: Some animals hibernate for some, or all, of the winter because the weather is cold and it is hard to find food. They find a safe place and fall into a very deep sleep. They don’t need to eat because during the autumn they eat extra food to help feed them in winter.
Migrate– Some animals migrate, which means they travel to another place where the weather is warmer and it’s easier to find food.

A Weather Walk
We went on a walk to observe the weather in Autumn.
We also observed the tree in the playground. Can you talk about how this tree has changed? How did it look in the summer? How has it changed in Autumn?
The United Kingdom
This half term, as part of Geograohy we learnt all about the United Kingdom and its capital city. Watch the video below and answer the following questions:
Let's explore the UK - BBC Bitesize - you can also explore the UK with Freya and her uncle Bob!
