Toy Story

Our topic for this half term will be ‘Toy Story’. We will be watching the film ‘Toy Story’ and using it as a stimulus for some of our work in English. There will also be a focus on famous explorers such as Neil Armstrong and Amy Johnson. The children will be learning some mapping skills and working on aerial views as well as a Design Technology project making a hand puppet through developing their sewing skills.

Materials and their Properties

This half term PE will take place on a Monday afternoon and a Thursday morning. Please ensure children wear their PE kits to school on these days.

Forest school sessions will take place on a Friday afternoon. It is important that children have named wellies in school to be able to join in with these sessions. It would be a good idea to leave them on their pegs in their welly bags.

Maths Games

Topmarks is a website with lots of good games children can play to hep them with their maths. Hit the Button is a great one for times tables.
