This term our topic is "Toys in the Attic". This topic is related to our core reading book, 
Traction Man by Mini Grey. We will be learning about toys past and present for our History focus and looking at everyday materials for our Science focus.



We have looked at the history of toys for the first two weeks of this term. Also have also sorted pictures into past and modern toys and looked at mass-produced/homemade toys. We have also gone on a school trip this half term where we saw some past toys in person and even played with them. 



Supporting your child with reading


A sharing book. - Your child will not be able to read this on their own. This book is for you both to read and enjoy together.

In order to encourage your child to become a lifelong reader, it is important that they learn to read for pleasure.

Please remember that you shouldn’t expect your child to read this alone.

Read it to or with your child and discuss the pictures, enjoy the story, predict what might happen next, use different voices for the characters, explore the facts in a non-fiction book.
