Our topic this term is ‘Toys Through Time’ and it will focus on History and Science learning. We are starting our topic with all children bringing in, discussing and writing about their favourite toys.

  • What is your favourite toy?
  • Did your parents and grandparents play with the same toys as you?
  • What were toys like in the past? What is similar and different about toys now and in the past?
  • How have teddy bears changed over time? How have toys changed?

In Science, we will also be discussing a range of materials and their properties. As part of this, we will be thinking about our own homes and the materials that are used to keep our homes safe and strong. We will be testing materials to see which ones would be most suitable for a house’s roof. 

Also this term, we will be doing an artist study of Jackson Pollock and even creating our own artwork in his style!
