We have been exploring old toys. We looked at toys that belonged to Miss Collins' Mum when she was a little girl. We discussed the materials they are made from and the children were shocked to learn she didn't have an iPad!
We are beginning our English topic reading 'Old Bear Stories' by Jane Hissey. We have enjoyed how they work together to solve problems and will be reading lots of stories with the toys in the next few weeks.

BLACK HISTORY HEROES 
We learned about Mae Jemison, the first black woman to go into space. She was a famous astronaut who travelled on the Endeavour space shuttle.  
We re-read the book 'The Promise' by Nicola Davies and made our own promise tokens with clay and leaves we found on our playground. Once they are dry we will paint them autumn colours.
