KS1 Weekly News 10.11.23

Welcome Back – This half term our topic is: Toy Story.

Toy Story – We all love playing with toys but our question this half term is… How have toys changed from the past to now? We will spend time finding out about Victorian toys and how the invention of plastic changed the toy industry.

IHL and 1TS – This week we have been writing about our favourite toys at home! We have been learning how to use adjectives to describe what our toys look and feel like. In science, we have started to learn and sort different materials. We had lots of fun exploring the objects in our classrooms.

1MG – This week, we have been learning about a famous local scientist, George Stephenson, who created the first passenger railway between Stockton and Darlington. We started exploring our new text Brown Paper Bear and are looking forward to reading more next week.
