Spring Term 1 Topic: Toys
This half term the children in Foundation stage will be learning all about toys. We will be talking about our favourite toys and finding out if these are different to the toys our parents and grandparents enjoyed when they were children. Of course having favourite toys means we are going to have to take turns and share. We have been working hard at learning this and are already quite good but there?s always room for improvement!
One of our favourite toys in class are our building blocks. We will be using these to make lots of buildings, which will help to develop our planning, making and evaluating skills. We will be learning the story of the 3 little pigs and hope to have a real builder come to visit and show us how to build a real wall. We are going to be visiting our wonderful new school forest this term and will be using what we learn there to build our own house of sticks.
We will be learning to look carefully to find out how toys move and we will visit the local park to investigate the moving toys there. We enjoy taking our learning away from the classroom and making links with the outside world.
All these experiences will give us lots to talk and write about so we can practice these skills too.
We hope to have a lot of fun while we learn!
