Getting to grips with place value in Year 1 Maths lessons. EYES DOWN for a game of PLACE VALUE BINGO!

We had a really FRUITY DAY in Y1 this week. We were learning about the parts of plants that we eat in Science and about being healthy with five-a-day. We also made fruit kebabs in Food Technology and they were delicious! Finally, we learnt about the Italian artist Guiseppe Arcimboldo who designed portraits from fruit and vegetables. What do you think of our own FRUITY FACES?
