Money, Money, Money!

We have been learning about money.  We enjoyed spending £1 at the shop, working out how much money we had spent and whether we needed any change.  

Toy Museum

We had great fun playing with old toys during a visit from the local museum.  We explored toys from the Tudor and Victorian times as well as toys from living memory.  We compared how the toys had been made and the materials that had been used.  

Alice in Wonderland Week

We have had a busy week learning all about Alice in Wonderland.  In English we read the story and talked about the characters.  In Art we designed our own tea cups before making them out of clay.  

In maths we used our knowledge of measures to bake cakes ready for our Mad Hatter's Tea Party.  We learned about fractions whilst making sandwiches.  

On World Book Day we came to school dressed as our favourite character from Alice in Wonderland.  We enjoyed cakes and sandwiches at our own Mad Hatter's Tea Party.  

Toy Makers

As part of our entry point for our new topic we were set a challenge.  We worked in our new Kagan teams to create our own toy.
