Why do we play with different toys as we grow older?
Throughout the topic the children will have many opportunities to explore, investigate and design and make toys from the present to the past. They will look at similarities and differences between toys whilst exploring the text; Major Glad, Major Dizzy, which will also encourage the children to find out about the past and begin to understand chronology.
In English, the children’s work will be based around the story Dogger. They will be looking at the story structure, characters and settings. They will create their own lost and found story based on their own favourite toy. They will be continuing to use their phonic knowledge to support spelling, as well as beginning to identify different sentence types.
During this half term, the children will develop their understanding of place value and addition and subtraction facts. They will be challenged using the question ‘How do you know?’ to begin to develop their reasoning skills and further consolidate and build upon known maths facts.
In RE we will be exploring the question; Who is a Christian and what do they believe?
