Play Learn Grow

We have started our new half term with lots of practical fun and exciting learning opportunities, especially in Maths and Topic!

Toys Title

Our new topic is Toys and we have been linking our learning in English by writing character and setting descriptions and developing our sentence work with the film Toy Story as inspiration.

To launch our topic, we had a toy afternoon in which we shared our favourite toys together. We used speaking and listening skills to compare the materials which our toys were made from, how they worked and moved and we also talked about why we liked them. We considered how the toys our parents and grandparents played with might have been different and why.

In Maths, we have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We have been shape detectives by NOTICING these shapes all around us, used songs to learn shape names and have developed our mathematical language by describing shapes and playing games which have encouraged us to use lots of maths talk!
